Learnt to do it on a 944, but now it's second-nature. First did it on the 911 without even thinking about it. I was doing it on a Peugot 407 diesel station wagon the other week...

I find it invaluable - and especially useful in traffic, like on entry to junctions where you might have to either stop or accelerate at any time, depending on how it goes when you get 10 ft from the white line.
Heh, I got a question? Were you chasing or leading in that Peugot?? And if so what was your opponent driving? ;-)

I adjusted the brake pedal to match the gas pedal height when pressed, then I brake with the right-side ball of my foot and rotate the left side downward to blip the throttle. No heal involved, the pedals are close enough to cover with one foot. I also use this method with every street driven down-shift to stay in practice. ( the good news is your 914 uses the same pedal cluster, no need to re-train when you change cars)

Agree, that's the way to do it... however, with some of our cars' lag you might have to hit the throtle a little longer to get the right RPM's.

Thanks!

My car has an old-school mod. It has a block of wood attached to the gas pedal. It is sanded so its grippy and rough to the touch, and it is "slotted" also for grip. Works liek a charm )

That's what a buddy did on his Mustang. Painted it black and it was good to go.

I have a bunch of spare time and made a couple of these. 3 axis pedal adjustment and 2 positions for the throw.

i only have 1 crappy pic where you can see it, but let me try and find it.......

I always joke that its not carbon fiber, its old-skool wood fiber!

I have considered changing it, but back in the day this car saw some action on the track, and it was a "period mod" so I actually think i will keep it.
