Heel & Toe?
Does this help reduce that "Spyder Bite" by giving the brakes a chance to
warm up as you accelerate into the next gear?
Mind you I've only driven one turbo Porsche - 911 (aka 930) - and I never
found heal & toe to be helpful in overcoming the problem described in turbo
acceleration - but hey I'm open to new ideas!

Well, I too am awaiting my 00 S4... but this is what I know of driving
many turboed Porsches.... to drive very well, you MUST learn to "heel-toe"
shift (OK, so in modern cars it's really "sides of the right foot"
The ultimate car to show this? Surprisingly, not the 930 (911 Turbo), but
in fact, the 944 Turbo. Great car, even greater turbo lag... :-)
Since I'm in central, NY we'll all have to attend a Quattro club event
somewhere in the NE (after our cars are broken in!), and we'll collectively
work on it. Of course, by then I hope my car will be pushing 300 HP (to
up for the sound system <grin>).
Best of Luck!
