heel and toe

You guys are all kidding yourselves.  Heel and toe went out years ago
when transmissions went from straight cut gear to synchros.  Heel and
toe shifts take too much time as you have to do so many things.  In
fact the new racing transmissions like the Jerrico in Nascar and the
new Indy car tanmissions don't even require you to use the clutch or
to get the engine speed into directo harmony with the trans speeds.
Those of us in real racing go straight down to the gear that we want
to get thru the corner with no throttle blipping or double clutch.
That allows you to concentrate on fewer things, allows you to get
deeper into the corner and to get into the proper gear in less time.
Heel and toe is history.  Bob Hines
