    This means that when you brake for a corner, your right foot stays on the brake pedal all the way to the turn in point. To downshift smoothly, the throttle is "blipped" by turning your foot counter clockwise so that your heel can be used on the gas pedal while still braking. Some people use the side of their foot, but this depends on pedal spacing, foot size etc.

    The purpose of heel/toe is to assure that every car forum has a thread that recurs weekly. :D

    I think by this time we can just shut down this chat line , because everything can be "searched". Give the guy a break.

    It's not really something you can try once or twice and see an advantage. You have to practice a lot. Like dancing sitting down.
