I've always driven my overdrive like this, switching it w/o using the
clutch. But then yesterday, while my GT6's bodily fluids were being
replaced, a fellow overdrive-equipped car owner (TR4A) suggested that I use
the clutch to minimize wear and tear on the unit. Does anybody know whether
it makes a difference?

p.s. My opinion on the 5-speed vs OD debate is that the GT6's tranny (not
its OD) is inadequate for the power it is transmitting and maybe a 5-speed
conversion could give me more hope of long-term viability.
