Tutorial: Heel & Toe Downshift (read description first!!)

This is my attempt at a tutorial for people who want to see how a heel and toe downshift is done. Please exercise caution! Practice until you feel comfortable with traffic around. Doing this wrong could cause damage to your drive train and/or an accident. I will not be held responsible for your attempts. For those of you who already know this technique then skip the vid:) I'm not showing you anything new! The purpose of a heel and toe downshift is to match the revs to your engine when when braking for a corner or stopping. This way your car is in the correct power band and the damage to your drivetrain is kept at a minimum. Think about it you're slamming two objects that are rotating at different speeds together so if you don't rev match it's really harsh on your car. By rev matching this way you can make sure your car's revs are in the correct powerband for your car to power out of corners and reduce bogging. Sorry I didn't talk much during the live demonstration but it was too loud in the car. Again if you are not familiar with this and it is your first time, please practice in an empty parking lot. Make sure your motions and timing are fluid to reduce the damage to your drive train. Thank you everyone for watching!

If you don’t match the engine’s rev to the wheel speed you risk locking up the driven axle and destabilising the car. You do this by using your right foot across both the brake and accelerator pedals; toe on the brake and heel (or the side of your foot) on the accelerator pedal.
