What does the phrase "floating gears" mean? I`ve heard it used a few times here but am not really sure what it means. Here I thought I knew everything there was to know about driving a stickshift! I posted this in reply to another message a while back but forgot what thread it was in and couldn`t find the message in a google search... my apologies if this has been answered but I couldn`t find it. thanks nate

Are you sure you`re not thinking about the term "floating rib"?
Seriously though, not really sure, but my guess would be that its a gear that is not solidly fixed in place, its a gear that can be engaged.

handbook I have on hand. It must have something to do with an action using a transmission or some such.

From context, ISTR understanding it to refer to the art of clutchless shifting by carefully matching revs in neutral, then sliding into the next gear.
I may have that totally wrong, though
