+rep!

Very nice man, I could never get over the literal "Heel Toe" apparently. That makes it MUCH easier. Not that I really need it quite yet...

yeah, heel-toe shifting is really neat. I do it all the time, u dont want to be in neutral around a corner in case you need to speed up for some reason.

lmao you trying to break your ankle or something? haha
? wtf...this is the more proper way to do it.

your foot is pointing out..much more natural.

in fact, the name heel-toe came from cars that had accelerator in the middle, and brake on the right.

so when you put heel on acclerator and toe on brake, your foot would be in the same position as the other guy is saying.

doing it the reverse is much harder on your ankle, and its why alot of people dont stick to the ''heel-toe'' anymore.

see here:

that heel toe extantion plate that bolted on to the pedal is meant for using the side of your foot for brake and other side for accerator. not actual heel-toe.

i cant possibly see how anyone thinks that pointing their foot in is easier than pointing it outward.
