Everyone with pedals please chime in


we'll, I am now convinced that I must learn heel and toe. It is possible on the E90, but since I've never done it, I'm having a hard time. I think the main problem for me is the fact that the gas pedal is lower than the brake, and so I can't blip the throttle well while braking.

I am considering getting an aftermarket gas pedal. I don't know if I should go for an extended one, or a normal one (which will just compensate the height difference slightly).

I wear shoes size 9, narrow ones (racing).

I am afraid of 2 things:
Hitting both the brake and the and the gas during an emergency brake
Making the situation better for street driving, but worse for track driving, since you brake harder at the track

However, I do most of my driving on the street, and since I'd like to learn heel and toe, I feel it is a better decision at this moment in time to perhaps sacrifice some of the track performance for learning how to heel-toe properly.

However, safety comes first at all costs.

Thanks for any input.
