It is the delicate balance of power of the accelerator and brake done by heeling the brake pedal and toeing the accelerator throughout a turn at a high rate of speed balancing the car at the limit of adhesion....

Not to expose too much of my ignorance, but what does heel & toe mean?

I'm more used to riding motorcycles, where you flip on some gas while downshifting, thus bringing the engine speed up, and easing into the downshift. This doesn't seem possible in a car, and a friend said something about a differential? Does heel & toe relate to this?
