or perhaps it is simply that you're executing a proper heel-and-toe
downshift :)  (yes, can be done with a slush)

seriously, some years back, R&T (?) did an analysis on UI, and one of their
analysis points was the pedal spacing.  don't recall the specific #, but
they found the distance between the pedals on a 5ks slush vs. a puick (tm)
vs. the average of most cars in america was negligible.  there was a more
significant difference in pedal heights, but so...?
