2006 Mustang GT shifting question

I have a standard transmission 06 GT. I was wondering if it was bad for the car to put it in neutral without pushing in the clutch. I read somewhere it's a faster way to shift when racing. Pulling it into to neutral as you you clutch or right before you clutch so that you can get it in gear faster and keep up the rpms. I've tried it. It is faster and it doesn't grind or anything, but I'm still not sure if it's good for the clutch or transmission. I don't wanna screw up anything major like that. Thanks

not an expert by ANY means... this is my first stick...but I do a LOT of reading and my better judgment would tell me any time you shift (be it to neutral or another gear) without disengaging the clutch is probably, in the long run, bad for your trans.

seems common sense to me. However, some guys buy their Mustangs purely for racing and power-shifting is a regular occurrence.
