If you ever want to move a clip by using its timecode, you can move them by entering a positive or negative timecode value.  For example, if you enter +100 it will move a clip forward 1 second; if you enter -100 it will move a clip backward 1 second.  You have to make sure the clip you're moving is highlighted, otherwise only the Playhead will move forward or backward.  By selecting a clip and pressing the + or - key, the move box will appear.

Then you can enter the amount you want to move a clip; press return and the clip will move.

Clips in the Timeline will move forward unless it's blocked by another clip.  This way your clips are kept in sync.  Final Cut Pro gives you a collision error if another clip is blocking the clip you want to move.
