wow i should really change my member name........:D

anyway, this is a rather dumb question, but for me, neutral has ALWAYS been a "no no" in my 4eat wrx. neutral drops, and messing up teh tranny, the list goes on, it all scares me, so i have never thought of putting the car into neutral unless my car was at rest and the foot off the throttle. :( the only time i use it is when i park, ---netural, ebrake, let car rest on ebrake, then shift into P---.

so my question is this. all hte 5spd guys like to throw revs when they see other cars, enthusiasts, etc. i just installed a nice exhaust setup and thought it would be cool to try that. how bad would it be if i were cruising, under 30mph, put it into n, blipped the throttle for some noticeable attention, and waited for the rpms to go back down before i put it into gear and drove off.

is this even possible? someone please explain how neutral, in and out of gear while driving works. ive accidentally gone into it as i was manually shifting all the way to D, and went into N, but shifted back and nothing seemed to happen.


pfffffffewww thanks

It's fine. As long as the revs aren't too high, it's ok to do that.

...and just don't make a habit of that.The very thought of a nuetral drop makes me cringe.

Revving it in neutral won't hurt a thing. Revving it to redline and dropping into gear will.
