Heel and Toe - It's the Shoes
This is in followup to a previous thread about heel and toe technique.
Supposedly, the classic method is with the ball of the foot on the
brake and pivoting the heel over to the throttle. A few posters
replied that they had to use the heel on the brake pedal and tap the
accelerator with their toes. So I started experimenting both ways in
my '90 Model 80 Q. I found that it is basically impossible to use the
standard technique while wearing wide-body Kenneth Cole or Doc Marten
shoes. But when I wore my slim Bostonian dress shoes, the classic
technique worked great. So there you have it. Audis are designed for
slim Italian-style shoes. This makes me curious. What kind of shoes
do racers use?
