Problem is, he'd sometimes do this too late going into a corner, and it'd really upset the balance of the car when cornering, since the car jerks. Thank God for WRX all-wheel tech.
That sounds a lot like me in my R32. I've been working on my heel-toe as much as I can, but since the M3 is my DD, it's not easy. I'm just not sure if I'll ever have enough chance for street or track use to really master heel-toe, hence my future track car is DCT.
