Sorry for the confusion. I was talking about the shift lever (hand) moving speed vs the dog teeth engagement, that if you hesitate when entering the gear, that would make the dog teeth grinded. And I was saying that I could be wrong but I think how quickly/smoothly you make the dog teeth engaged is more important for the dog teeth lifespan than the method how you cut torque to input shaft.
Ok yeah that sounds right to me. The last part of the shift lever movement (when you are actually entering the next gear) should be a fast movement.
