Not only rain, sometimes at highland area (Cameron, Genting) it can be foggy especially after rain that limit your viewing distance.

In heavy fog, it's either drive slowly or delay your trip especially when going downhill until it's clear.

after can do heel n toe properly then it is time to train left foot braking as well....



left foot braking give you even better advantage to saves out of dangerous condition especially on slippery surface......helps by using power to bail out of corner but without loosing control... smile_thumbup.gif

If the traffic situation doesn't required you to slow down, it's only involved controlling the accelerator and clutch pedal at the same time.

If control clutch with left leg and accelerator with right left why need heel and toe?
Heel and toe is controlling the foot brakes and accelerator with the right foot at the same time. One side using the heel and one side using the toe...

Agree with u on this.

Done this technique b4, very hard to master with different vehicle.
Its very2 helpful i u are going mad around twisty bend because if done properly;
1. U will always have enough power to pull out of the corner
2. Take the corner at speed u wont even thought possible.
3. Balance the weight transfer during corner makes cornering much2 faster and fun.

When u match the rev with the vehicle speed, u will notice that the car neither lurch forward or dips its nose.
It kept level and taking corner at crazy speed yet keeping poised is easy. Unlike when most people take corner, they brake which transfer the weight to the front. The front tyre can only take so much b4 they understeer. Never enter a corner while braking unless u know what are u doing.
Do this technique perfectly and u will feel u have something special smile_tongue.gif
Its all down to the timing of matching the rev and vehicle speed.

I stop doing it for now as now driving an auto,hahahaha.
Still i can go mad by using the right gear and play with the throttle.

How to master it?
Train, train and train.

I remembered you did mentioned some years ago that you find it easier to heel & toe with a safety boot? smile_big.gif

I've almost forget on how to do it eversince I've change to driving tanks. smile_shy.gif

Ram me if you can!

Yup, King's brand to be exact.
If that high cut type, cant feel a thing as i tried last time during a fishing trip.
The fishmonger boot is worse as u migh get your feet stuck in between the pedal.
Now, no safety boots anymore. Trade it with formal shoe which sucks for driving.
Plus, will damage the heel side faster.
