The guy in the CGT was doing what I usually end up doing which is just rolling my foot a little rather than using my heel. Kinda sucks. That's a big reason I am considering M-DCT. I want to be able to downshift and brake quickly without worrying my foot will slip off the brake pedal and send me careening into a guy waiting in the left turn lane (or oncoming traffic!).
All these techniques have the same end result, I us my feet like the guy in the CGT and have grown accustomed to this method. More because it is the one I was taught by my instructor who is an active Champ Car race driver and have mastered it. But I suggest you us whatever makes you feel more natural & comfortable. And yes, if you screw up you will run into the guy in front no doubt , but heel-and-toe in my view is to be used only during very aggressive driving where there is adequate space etc... so that I hardly think there would be a car in a stop light ahead of me lol!! And yes, I also agree this would be a huge reason to get M-DKT, you would avoid all this crap altogether. I however believe that if you master the technique you will actually have more control than with an M-DKT and more fun, this is ONLY my opinion however.
