Earlier his year, the Bondurant School of High Performance Driving signed a contract with Dodge to use Charger and Challenger Hellcats, along with the odd Viper ACR, to teach its students the basics of performance driving.
Road & Track’s Billy Knight recently paid a visit to Bondurant to sample their new driver education cars and also learn a thing or two himself. Included in his lesson was how to heel toe shift, a skill that is pretty much necessary for driving a manual car on track but is unfortunately a bit difficult to learn and even harder to perfect.
In case you didn’t know, heel toe shifting is when you blip the throttle while downshifting under braking. The slight throttle application while downshifting helps keep the car stable and prevents the drive wheels from temporarily locking up.
Watch Lee show you how its done in the video above.
