that it's not good to rev the engine while you have the clutch in. but when you shift, don't you apply gas while you're letting the clutch out? isn't that the same thing?

I suppose you launch everytime you get out of a complete stop?

There is a clear difference between slipping the clutch and revving while stopped. you can rev it a little to get moving after that foot off the clutch. Some things are allowable.
And dont confuse a common question with a racing question two totally different driving styles when the moment is right.

They are not the same thing. There's some form of load on the engine when you are shifting and applying gas. There is no load on the engine when you dry rev the car.
