"This is the way"
For instance, in my 325i.
If I'm going 50MPH in third gear and I turn off the ignition (just one click, still need to steer), the car cuts fuel, engine still spins, besides friction slowing you down, literally nothing changes, it just feels like you let off the gas. Turn the key back to "ON" position, and the engine starts getting fuel. No starter, etc.
So with that being said, you could in theory run a car up to the top of third gear on a dyno with the engine off, downshift to second, and blow up the motor. Without the motor running.
That is why something like rev protection can't save you in a money shift.
LOL to show what an idiot you really are ill even link you to the post where i linked one of his vids of him filming himself
this post was literally like 5 up from yours lol
Do you see the link now? Its blue and in bold. If you click that magic button you will see what im talking about and maybe save the sass for someone else

Well it could be done by using a couple of systems but good luck engineering this ****:
1. Non-rotating clutch disk mounted between the block and flywheel. The overrev disk would engage if the ECU senses an incorrect gear selection or a sudden rise in RPM that would indicate a money shift situation. The tough part would be to fine tune the engagement to slow the motor before it overrevs and not lock the motor and shock the rotating mass
2. Electronically actuated clutch on the output shaft of the trans that immediately disengages if the incorrect gear is selected or a sudden RPM rise like described in the first situation
Maybe we could get a well-known van based CNC shop to work these plans up.

But why!? It's still your fault. The manufacturer isn't going to cover a damn thing if it's under warranty so why add something that 99.99% of the time isn't needed, and the .01% you don't have to pay for anyway?
Some people in this thread are forgetting that seat belts and airbags had to be federally mandated. Car companies are businesses. They won't spend money to prevent you from spending more money after doing something stupid.
