yeah fair enough. good points. so i guess the general concensus is that you should know how to heel-toe before getting on the track, but dont try it till you're entirely comfortable with the track and have a decent grasp of the basics (smooth steering, racing lines, braking pts).

couldnt agree more. most of the time i get close enough with the rev matching but i find i screw up on the slower corners. if im not concentrating, i rev the engine up to around 5.5k coz thats what im used to hearing even though i only need 4k.
