haha...

You do not need to heel-toe on the street. And its pretty silly because I can rev match easily without getting on my brakes during street driving.

wow this thread is still going? I heel toe just fine now (more like big toe little toe) but just figured i can go through the gears a lot faster if i had something fancy to do it for me.

Feel free to keep adding to your post counts :lol:

If you read my post carefully you will see I did say "or rev match." I only heel-toe if I'm braking (which is the definition of the term), otherwise I rev match. Most people understand what you are talking about if you mention heel-toe as opposed to rev match, which is why I used it in that context. If you don't need to that's great.

I am very glad that you heel and toeing (or rev matching) on the street. Here is to more benefiting of the neutral attitude which helps our handling!

I guess it is a factor.

When I bought my '90 last year, the PO had installed some gay aftermarket pedal covers. I literally couldn't depress the clutch without also hitting the brake. Removed those stupid bolt-ons and I can work it just as easily as my old '92.

On this I would disagree.

Ok, you don't need to, but on my daily commute, there are a couple of very fun turns that you need to be hard on the brakes into, and then immediately get on the power one or two gears down as you turn in to prevent understeer.

lol, Joe, I think we are getting a bit nitpicky. I have plenty of fun and exciting turns around town which I do downshift and blast through. I never intended that statement to be such an overstatement. But I understand, interweb forumz have a tendency to make things so literal.

Anyways, apparently our OP has gained the heel-toe ability through excessive grinding on pigs for experience, so I will gladly bow-out of this pointlessness!
