Good footage of heel/toe technique.
Fucking incredible little video!
Pretty cool. Definitely a skill I haven't mastered yet. I usually end up funbling them pretty bad when I try.
The Best Motoring videos often have an interesting foot cam too.
My size 13 feet impede my heel/toe skills

Heel toe downshifts are definitly harder to master in a street car or even solo II than when you are racing in solo I or w2w. I find it much easier to do when I am fully on the brakes and have a good solid pivot point for my foot to blip the throttle. Prime examples at AMP for my car are turns 1, 2, and 9.
Also a good offramp could substitue I guess. Just come into the ramp really hot and stand on your brakes
braking late and hard definatly makes a smooth downshift easier. having an engine that revs really fast helps too
That's an impressive video, I wish my feet were that fast!
I once had a corolla beater that had a couple shifty syncros so I learned to heel to toe all the time when downshifting. At first it was hard but after a while I got used to it and it's now second nature, like breathing. I still do it to this day in the WRX out of habit .
Hmm, my size 12 feet actually HELP mine, being larger and easier to reach the pedals and whatnot...
your computer sucks
You mean connection.

i heel/toe in everyday driving so is was quite easy to maintain at the track... although.. that vid makes it look like he has six feet
heel/toe just takes some practice. I learned how to do it on the offramps of the 102...exits 3 & 2! just did the loop a buncha times, then i figured it out. Now I feel like a champ when I downshift!
...reading on ARMS that the car has a hayabusa motor with a 6 speed sequential tranny. what is that powertrain dropped into?
From the looks of the cockpit in the video it's an open wheel car, maybe a formula ford or something.
Take a look at the site, http://www.radicalextremesportscars.com/
My guess is it's one of those, they look like mini le-mans cars.
what car do you drive?
In my 240sx the floor is curved to make room for the tranny so when i have the ball of my feet on the brake when i try to pivot my heel over it hits the side and not the petal. hard to describe accurately
