    Just curious, with auto clutch do most people use left foot to brake? I've resisted up to now so my feet don't get confused when i drive manual car in rl.
    How much advantage is there to using left?

    Depends. Sequential I can left foot brake, H-Shifting I can right foot brake :)

    I have no problems getting confused driving a real car

    I brake with my left foot but I very rarely 'left-foot brake'

    Only once managed to accidentally brake with my left foot in a real car when moving off (as I always use the clutch for starting anyway in evo and then move over to the brake). Weird how much harder I push the brake with my left foot as well as it was a big jolt forward... :D

    I think left foot braking tends to be more useful on certain cars, tracks and corners than others, and you need the right setup to be effective. Other than that, braking with the left foot is quite a bit quicker (and quieter) than moving my foot over...

    I accelerate & brake with right even when I need to do both...

    I guess it comes from RL as my left foot is taught to clutch exclusive use and to be "resting" on the left side most of the time.

    Left foot only - not coordinated enough to try braking & accelerate at the same time !!!

    Left foot exclusively with paddle shift.
    G25 with clutch and H-pattern still very new to me, but am hoping to improve my H&T and do a bit more with both feet in the future.

    Left foot braking for me.
    I drive a manual van for work and have no problems right foot braking.

    The wife has a auto and I left foot brake in that. Luckily I'm not a heavy breaker...

    Left foot braking and auto clutch (though I have a G25, am always considering switching auto clutch off, I am just sure I will screw up at least one race, therefore I did not try it)

    And no probem switching between real life and my racer life (would never go on a racing track in real life, would be scared to death to break the car :) ).

    Left foot braking for me, until I can get my H-pattern support for my raceseat, then I'll give it a shot.

    Left foot. I use a Momo with paddle shifting so don't have a clutch.

    In a real car right foot. Left foot mainly just works the clutch.

    i use both. when i`m using auto clutch i left foot brake as its quicker than transferring you right foot across. So in my mind a left foot "braker" will be able to get onto the brakes quicker than a right foot "braker".
    However, when i`m in the caterham, i always have the auto clutch off and therefore use a combination of heel and toe and left foot braking depending on what situation i`m in.

    Left foot in game, right foot in real life. I'm stuck driving an automatic for a few weeks too so my left foot feels useless :(
