Today, you only need to heal/toe/double-clutch in traditional manual cars in certain track conditions: Heal-toe fosters maximum traction and no loss of speed during downshifts. Obviously, F1 cars and the like don't need this technique because of their sequential manual shifting. The blip is integrated into the technology.
Well, I think I've explained everything right but I'm sure someone can add more and explain the nuances better.
sorry for my ignorance but...
why, historically, did double clutching need to be done? And how did it work?
