In Reply to: Heel-&-toe information, where is it? posted by max on February 02, 2001 at 13:25:05:

There is no need to heel-toe on the street. With the modern day synchronizors in your transmission, no need to double clutch either. I find it very difficult to heel-toe in an E36 M3. I don't even use the technique in my M3 race car. The only car that I've found is easy to heel-toe is my Ferrari 308. The pedals are set up for it. I guess I have big feet, and no flexibility. Anyway... to heel-toe, when down shifting apply the brake with the ball of your right foot and simultaneously tap the accelerator with your heel to raise the rpm's so that the downshift will be more fluid.
