Re: Lane Conflict

Growing, but not acceptable unless the lanes have right turn arrows in them when they're OK to be there but not to be over (under) taking. So thoroughly anti-social. HTH.

Re: Clutch - heel & toe

You really posted it innocently meaning "where should I place the heel and toe of my shoe"? Get away with you! :D You should have posted something about how supple or otherwise your ankles are, because it's about how much you can pivot your foot from the heel in a vertical plane. I can't d...

Re: Clutch - heel & toe

Yes, I know that's what he means, as I posted higher up. But his use of the phrase, most commonly used in the context of the right foot, has confused most participants.

Re: Clutch - heel & toe

If you hadn't written "Heel and toe" in your thread title, this confusion wouldn't have arisen. What you're describing is NOT heel and toe.

Re: Clutch - heel & toe

I think maybe we're at cross purposes here. "Pivot ankle when changing gear" = left foot on clutch in a vertical plane so as to achieve smooth clutch engagement. "Heel and toe" = right foot on brake / accelerator in a horizontal plane in order to operate both pedals at once. HnT ...

Re: Clutch - heel & toe

I've never been able to do this. In classic 911s, it'd be a real advantage, but my ankles aren't supple enough.

I'm afraid I sent Ben's book straight to the nearest Oxfam shop as soon as I'd waded through it. If it hadn't been so big and glossy I'd probably have done so earlier.

Re: EV sales down

Certainly none of those things here, that I'm aware of. That said, I still love ICEs and will continue to use them while they make economical sense. I certainly can't justify spending 65k of my savings on an electric vehicle that'll outlive me by a factor of at least 10.
