No, you are wrong. Syncromesh was indeed made for a reason. The reason being that it is easier for most average drivers to shift. Heel toe is part of the technique involved in double clutching. Straight rev matching(or heel toe if you prefer) is not faster than properly conducted double clutching. Surely if one reads on paper the steps involved, it seems longer, but rev matching without double clutching involves waiting for the syncros to realign, to mesh...it may sound insignificant to you, but there is time there. This is also why dogboxes are still used in various racing...the instant response from the lack of syncros....every little bit counts.Originally Posted by speedDman1
Furthermore, heel toe doesn't relieve stress from the syncros but rather on the contrary in fact. Smooth downchange it may seem, but this is where one is really working the syncros.
