Driving an old coe Honda currently.
Always had these questions in mind so perhaps someone can clarify my doubts.
I've tried searching through this forum but to no avail.
Please pardon my inexperience or ignorance, if any.

1. Is it true that changing gears too quickly (i.e. at low rpms) will shorten the life of the gearbox?
If that's the case, wont I have to rev to higher rpms, so as to preserve the gearbox?
2. If i constantly rev at higher rpms, wont i cause more wear and tear to the engine?
3. What is the definition of 'dragging gear'?
to constantly drive at high rpms without changing gear or to drive at a high gear at low speeds and low rpm?

Question 3 is due to me reading other forums on this wear and tear issue, and different ppl giving different definitions. Duno which to believe.
I used to think that dragging gear means low gear high rpm.

The smoother and quieter your car runs
the less wear and tear.

So if you rev to 6k and change up,
the engine will be sceaming and
the car will jerk forwards
when you change gear.

If you are doing like 10 kmh
and you change to 5th gear
and your car shudders and pick
up speed very slowly then the
shuddering and jerking is also
a sign of wear and tear.

So when should we change up?
At very high revs or very low revs?
We should just follow the men and ladies'
leg rule.

Some men like ladies with long legs and
some men like ladies with short legs
but most men prefer something in between.

So the least wear and tear is to change
up smoothly and as noiselessly as possible
at about 2 - 3k rpm. Something in between
is the sweet spot.
