I shifted quickly, my shifter is like a switch, it either moves and clicks and is done, or it doesn't move at all. Yes you cannot shift into 1st on a car above a certain speed, with or without clutch, due to a protective feature to prevent you from killing your engine/trans. This was not that. You can feel it starting to shift before it shifts, or you cannot.
I would be accelerating, let off the gas and a split second later go to shift up, when there is no pressure either from accelerating or decelerating between the engine and transmission, that split second where they're matched and if there was play, and time was frozen, you could wiggle it. Accelerating there is pressure to go faster keeping things locked up, and decelerating there is pressure to slow down keeping things locked up, in between there is a happy place where everything is under no pressure. That is where I attempted my shifts.
