Man it feels so much better, more positive... I was surprised how much shorter the throw is... not too much... it is a tiny bit louder... but zero grinding or anything like that...

It's awesome...
Well heck....that was a "nudge" post...I didn't know you had installed it....I'm glad you like it. I was going to offer you the install DVD if you did not have it

I've always played with Heel/toe down shitfing, no expert by any stretch.. But the lingenfelter pedals really help... It's kinda funny when I do it coming to a stop light... slowing down with the engine at a bout 3 grand...

Thanks! The cold is here and the car sleeps. I think this is the coldest Ed has ever seen and it's not even Thanksgiving

I'm sure his Xmas wish involves money and a move back to Calif.

You can teach me the heel and toe shift one day... Not much call for it in a straight line... But could still prove useful...

I love driving this way. Barefoot always worked best for me but there are some nice driving shoes out there too.

I've actually got driving shoes for race day... I was reading about heel and toe shifting the other day... Interesting... But I learn more by watching and then doing rather than reading about it...

I can image you would prefer to have someone show you in person, but have you checked youtube. There are some tutorials out there.

... Texan by choice... I hauled a patient to the twin cities a few years ago... In early Jan. We landed, loaded him into the ambulance and went to the hospital... While working on a patient, I almost never noticed weather conditions... And never wore a coat... Ever...

So, we get back to the airport and the plane had been moved... I asked the guy at the private terminal, and he points about a mile down the ramp... So, my partner and I headed out... I had on a short sleeved shirt.... We picked the pt up in Cozumel...I think we made it about thirty yards and turned around and sprinted back inside... The guy at the counter was laughing... He wished one of his friends had been there so he could bet how far we would make it... Then proceeded to tell us it was 30 below zero... I didn't think it really got that cold anywhere...
