Agreed, I do the same with my Novice and Intermediate students. You are busy enough working on much more fundamental elements of performance driving.

However with some advanced students that want to improve their skill and lap times, it is something I do work with them. BTW, shifting mid corner can also be applied to MT cars, it just requires much more skill to execute.
