Constant mesh box has a sort of nickname "crash" box overthere but the proper name is a Roadranger.
Clutchless changes are the norm unless your doing your road test and then its the dreaded "double clutch" but since I'm still in the UK I probably know "diddily squat"!!!!

You are right although i have never heard the name/term "roadranger"
I still double clutch gears 1 - 4 when empty/bobtailing but don't use the clutch at all after 4th. Makes some interesting sounds sometimes ............. I'm still learning and will be for the rest of my life.

My only problem was remembering to use the clutch when I got in the car
