probably not. you could have been in the right RPM to do an RPM shift anyways, it is not actually necessary for a vehicle to have a clutch, it just makes things 10 times easier to drive. and if it was to damage something, it would have hurt the transmission. if you didnt hear the unmistakable sound of grinding gears, you'll be ok.
