    I have been too chicken s**t to try this for real. The heel - toe portion is tough with a size 15 shoe.

    15! . ya you might have to do it bare foot. a good pair of smaller shoes that you get used to will really help. i'm partial to my vans slip-on's. They give great pedal feel and their smaller size will keep you from getting caught up on the carpet/center barrier. very good poor man's driving shoe.

    It'll also help alot to press the brake pedal closer to the middle of your foot so you heel doesn't stick out as far. The right foot position on the brake is a great place to start.

    I bought a pair of wrestling shoes in 15 for autox. They are similar to driving shoes and are very compact in size with a flexible sole.

    My shoe size followed my age from 9 - 15.

    I used to have a really hard time heel/toeing since I also wear 15 wide shoes, but then I started just putting my foot on both the gas and brake at once. Then I can rock my foot to either side and control both pedals at the same time. It took a little time to get used to, but now I can press all 3 pedals at once with ease.

    Another Yeti. Medium width here.

    Try wrestling shoes. I got a pair of Adidas for $60. The increased feel / pedal feedback is a real plus. Piloti makes a 15 as well.

    i've heard some nonsense about people double clutching on upshifts by just letting the clutch out in neutral in between gears, not sure if they even tap the gas while in neutral. no idea why and makes no sense to me either.

    i don't see the point in double clutching in a drag race unless there is a steep hill on your track

    My transmission has synchros, so I just use them. Drive something without synchros and you'll understand what it's all about REALLY quick.

    it is tough in a wrx with a size 15. Most people just cant sympothize with the pain of having freakishly large shoes. Im just gald our cars atleast have decent headroom.

    I prefer Bigfoot. Honestly, I've been driving cars with close together pedals for so long now that I have zero problem with the width of my shoes. But thanks for the tip.

    Unfortunately, not enough headroom for me! My wife bought me a helmet for Christmas so I could track my car, but unfortunately it only left me with about 1/2" of headroom so I had to return it. I'd prefer not to break my neck hitting a bump on the track at 100 MPH or something like that. There's one helmet company out there that I read gives you better clearance than anybody else (drawing a blank on the name at the moment), but their helmets are $700+ instead of the $300 the one my wife got me cost. So maybe next year I'll get one...

    I agree. The synchros are much faster than my clutch leg. I do heel-toe on occasion.
