But you still can do: hahahahaha

2. Brake-Blip-Downshift

3. Blip-downshift-accelleration

4. Blip-downshift-decelleration

Extra.

1. Full throttle quick flat upshift. (Best done with Dynojet Power commander and fuel cut quik shift)

2. Full throttle-closed throttle quick upshift.

3. Clutchless shift. (Best done with Dynojet Power commander and fuel cut quik shift)

5. Smooth upshift with out slipping clutch.

For normal daily street driving on automatic trans + FWD, i prefer to learn Left-Foot Braking.
Imo, its more applicable to today's more powerful cars, especially when you're cornering fast (but not like a maniac on public roads) where lifting the throttle momentarily at high speeds can cause the tail to step out.
Hence, LFB is also a safety technique. After 1yr of constant practice, i now brake with left feet all the time and you feel you've more control just before entering that tight corner. It became second nature....just like riding a bicycle, and teaching the brutal left feet to be as sensitive as the right feet.

i HEEL & TOE all the time when I drive a manual as its 2nd nature. You also need to learn how to downshift bilp on acceleration when you need power. Contrary to normal believe heel & toe is not for spirited driving only, its for every time you drive at any speed.

You need to learn how to brake downshift blip when certain cars not ergonomic for you to heel and toe. E.g. pedal height not properly adjusted, either too high or too low.

For me I only left foot brake on auto in very selected circumstances as most of the time my driving style is to make sure I finish my braking and downshifting in a straight line b4 pointing the nose of the car at the apex, so as to not unsettle the rear of the car. Very important especially when you driving a high HP RWD car especially in the wet. But on a FWD left foot brake all you want going into to the corner and even out of the corner to act as an LSD so as not to spin up the inside wheel too much on exit.
