	"Heel & Toe" referrs to a technique of using the heel on the 
brake pedal while simultaneously tapping the throttle with the toe of the 
same foot.  The heel and toe can be reversed, or the ball of the foot can 
be used on the brake while the baby toe is used to blip the throttle, but 
all of these variations are still called Heel & Toeing.  The technique is 
used to match RPMs on downshifts while double clutching.
