    My steering wheel does not have a clutch pedal, so, I use left-foot braking.

    I am sure a number of you have 3-pedal wheels where it is easy to perform heel-and-toe.

    I am interested because I want to see how a heel-and-toe should be done.

    I have seen Senna perform the technique on an NSX in Suzuka. :cool:

    Here's me driving a Group A Holden Commodore around Autodrom Most. I employ a hybrid braking style, tending to left-foot brake when I don't have to downshift.

    I use the clutch alot since I got a G27 and have watch people do the heal and toe thing.

    To be honest! I cant do it or can get my head around the benefits of it (for me that is)
    I right foot brake only and keep my left foot on the clutch always.

    I only like to hit the brake once when going into a corner, then I change down to the right gear and find my speed then ride the gears through and out of a corner accelerating all the time.

    I just cant make the heal and toe work for me.

    I do not like the feel of my toe on the brake and my heel on the throttle with my G25 and CSR Elite pedals, I have to have my heel on the brake and toe on the throttle.

    Of course... in simbin titles you can get away with not touching the clutch once the car is moving, so that is an easy thing to do. :whistling:
    But not all sims allow that. :p
