None of the early Porsche transmissions were ment to be "speed-shifted" like the American Borg-Warner 4-speeds that we have gotten used to. Their design precluded this, although they can be shifted quickly and accurately as long as the shifter bushings are in good shape and the clutch releases cleanly. What I see at most autocrosses are the first-to-second shift done too quickly trying to get off the start real fast and you get that famous "knicking" sound. The best way to prevent this is practice-practice-practice so you are used to this type of shift pattern.
