I hope I haven't done damage over the years. I remember when i first got my car, I could be rolling to the stop sign with the clutch in, and i couldnt put it into first until i was going like 5-10mph. It wouldnt let me. I caught myself and noticed today I could put it into first rolling at 23mph to a stop. Now I've heard it can cause damage to the syncros by putting it in first before you are almost at a complete stop. Have I caused premature damage to the transmission and syncros? I'm not talking about downshifting, just simply rolling to a stop sign, putting the clutch in, putting it in first, and leaving the clutch in until you come to a stop and take off from the stop sign.
