    not if you drive an evo. all you do is aim for the dirt on the inside of a traditional apex and keep your foot in the throttle.

    ha ha... no seriously, i dont heel & toe... I guess I just never really thought it made u faster, just better on drive train... even back in the day when I drove RWD cars like 240sx & supras I didnt heel/toe...

    hell... i can do anything I put my mind to though... so if it makes me faster I'll practice it & learn it... cant be that hard.

    Noob. Wow, i had no idea that you didnt know how to. I was wondering why it sounded all awkward when youd downshift.

    From a practical standpoint, I have no idea how you even do this and are able to enter corners smoothly. I think I tried it one time after watching Jack Mardikian's video (who also doesn't use any heel toe) and it turns into a drift-style corner entry when I release the clutch without having matched the revs.

    Does not compute.

    Nils, congrats on 3rd place this past weekend. I haven't met you yet, but I was 7th of 8. Nice vid. I've not yet been to Spring Mountain.

    the funny part is that I am running my oem tranny that has had the same single puck hub sprung clutch in it since 2005 with no problems... (knock on wood)

    i can only image that if I had an s2k or a porsche gt3 I would have to learn how to do it properly...

    Love the braking zone into ego check for aero loading and the long sweeper with the dip.
