I found that once you get good at heel-toe downshifting on the street then its WAY easier at the track.

On the street, you aren't pushing the brake pedal all the way down so the accelerator is still much lower than the brake pedal. Make modulating the throttle more difficult. Unlike at the track, you'll have the brake pedal pressed down much further so the brake pedal is almost even with the throttle, makes the blip much, much easier.
