I usually get the timing right @ TWS, but this being a new track and not braking as hard, threw my timing. I guess like everything, practice makes perfect!

The real problem isn't trying to reach the throttle or having pencil feet. The key is being able to control the brake with a portion of your foot. Everytime I brake in my 330, my foot in only covering the outer 3rd of the pedal, no matter if I will heel toe or not.
I have tried blipping with rolling foot or using the heel. No preference, I just need more practice and MSR was a new track, which amplified my pencil feet. Haha!

Done that one before and almost spun.

I installed one with the upper left extension (check out their site to know what that means). The end result is that in heavy braking on track I heel & toe with the ball of the foot and heel on the gas (foot turned at an angle towards the brake pedal), but I can still heel & toe when braking gentler by just rolling the right side of my foot onto the gas (breathing on the gas with the right outer edge of the foot). That is made possible because my gas pedal is both a bit higher (thickness of the aluminum pedal) and a bit wider (pedal extension). It's close to the point where I can try it on almost every downshift (except traffic crawling), for practice.

They're not expensive or hard to install, I think if you have a bit of trouble doing the heel&toe you should give it a go.
Sound like a good idea!
