Attempting to teach myself to heel and toe my punto, for reasons of smoothness and lightning the load on clutch and syncromesh, also it sounds pretty nice, got as far as rev matching downshifts for fast smooth ones but can only do it when i'm not on the brakes, so not ideal, when i try to brake and blip the throttle i can't manage it..the whole turning your foot sideways wont work for me (my knee is in the steering column when i try...) only way i can do it is to cover both accellerator and brake by moving my foot between them (obviously having pressed the clutch down momentarily before) but to get good braking force you press the go pedal too hard and the engine races...and dont really want to let up on the brake cos you generally press it for a reason!...can anyone do it? am i doing it wrong? or is the punto badly set up for it?
