A clutch kick drift baby! I think the ultimate goal should be the ability to trail brake and down shift. I downshift trailbraking and mid-turns in two long sweepers. There's even a 3rd turn where I don't even rev match and just downshift mid turn (T2 Texas World Speedway CCW). I scrub the right amount of speed so that it kind of rev matches itself without upsetting the car.

I would downshift early in the brake zone as an intermediate driver. As I built speed this became an issue because I would be on the verge of overrevving the car...I think I did once. Waiting later gives you a little more headroom.
