How much time does power shifting net over just quick shifting

Ever since I could drive, when I raced, once the gas pedal was on the floor it didn't come back up until the run was over. Recently I've been wondering if anyone has any evidence that power shifting made a measurable difference. I can bang gears right alongside the pros and my "quick" shifts (lifting the throttle partially between shifts) are pretty quick as well. So, to ease the abuse on my drivetrain I might start quick shifting instead. Guess I'm getting old lol.

I don't trust the synchro's in the TR6060 enough to power shift. That and mine is one of the possible faulty input shaft cars so I've babied the crap out of my teas as much as possible. I'm looking at rebuilding it when the next clutch goes in so after that I'll let her rip.
