And physically moving the foot from pedal to another.
Did the OP remove Myth from the title? BTW what happened to our great instructor/film maker? Where did he go?
Which all happens on the street as welll
I think I'm gonna need something more than just your word for that.
He has a nice little youtube channel with ADV riding tips and techniques. Apparently did a RTW recently and assume he still teaches in the PNW somewhere.
Uumm, no (real) racing car driver has done this in decades. They all left foot brake. Paddle shift/auto cars and all.
Yeah, and we're clearly talking about racing drivers who drive with both feet here...
I thought there was some mention of lap times.
On the other hand, the vast majority of cars on the road are auto's. Many drivers have never driven a manual. Lots of these do left foot brake too.
I would say the vast majority use right only. Race car drivers left foot brake because they know what they are doing, it's not something grandma in stop and go traffic should be attempting. You need to be pretty practiced and done incorrectly - you're just dragging the brakes everywhere.
Mission* accomplished, I guess?
(generate traffic to his youtube channel)
Well, I disagree. I think there are more LFB than you do. Probably doesn't matter much as whichever way it's done, doing it properly/well is the important part.
I do see at least occasional evidence of LFB dragging the breaks.
LFB dragging the brakes is not a sign of trying but failing to do it correctly, it's a sign of being clueless about what you are doing altogether.
I used to be a left foot braker until I started driving mainly manual trans cars.
In a side note, some racers will heel/toe throttle and brake when racing a manual shift w/clutch, no quickshifter or constant mesh trans, but with the old school transmission/clutch set ups.
Both feet on the gas, both feet on the brake, go, go, go, aw shit, stop!!!
Actually I failed my first driver's test because I was using both feet. The old car would not idle and I had to give it a little throttle at a stop.
The examiner gave me penalty points every time I did it. I passed everything else 42 years ago.
