    I might add that if you are not using a load cell brake pedal, it's even trickier to blip the throttle 'cause your brake pedal is deeply pressed down and not on level with the accelerator. I therefore added some spacers under the brake pedal to compensate for that a bit. So if you're on travel based pedals you might try that little tweak, too.

    Most of them are absolutely drivable without heel-and-toe also - but you have to be very gentle, which costs speed.

    I'm on the Fanatec V3s. - I know they're load-cell based, but is the rest of the configuration good-to-go out of the box for H&T?

    Yes.
    I drive a lot of h&t with them, i even recommend the default pedal configuration, without the "D-shape" caps, out of the box. It's fine with socks and shoes.^^ The CSP V3 always remember me of a somewhat 90s BMW pedalset in this config.

    Perfect - I'm a socks racer to the core. :)

    Yes, but the main goal is to be fast, isn't it?

    I use Heusinkveld pedals and the throttle and brake pedals are not on the same level, so that they are level when the brake is applied.

    Hmm, not sure. In my case the main goal is to have fun ;)
    I drive every car without heal and toe, my brain-feet coordination is not good enough to use it.
    When you don't use heal and toe, you just have to wait long enough until the revs drop when downshifting.

    Right, but when I'm fast, I have fun!:p

    Absolutely, but what I meant was the cars can be enjoyed also without heel-toeing, although not quite as fast.

    Take some time to learn it, even, if it's not absolutely clean or takes hours, it's so rewarding and you gain a lot of control, even possible, to use the shifting for better stability and cornering. With a car like the Zakspeed Capri, you almost find some sort of "flow", when proper shifting just half-smoothly executed :)

    I'm practising heel-toeing, and I agree it's quite rewarding. It's much easier with a load cell brake.

    My point was that the game isn't in any way unplayable without heel-toeing. And I'm not always faster when doing it either, due to lack of skill.... :D
