Def. see it being easier on the track for hard braking, but I'm trying to apply it in real life driving conditions so I can, well, brake and downshift at the same time.
Right now I don't heel-toe at all, but I anticipate when I'll need to slow down by monitoring traffic ahead and downshift first, then brake. But it's just not as efficient.
I haven't tried in traffic just yet because the person behind me will think I'm brake checking them
