I heal-toe with the best of them out there, but being able to focus the ball of your foot without swinging my heel would still allow greater brake control near the limit. I heal-toe daily, street or track...have done so everyday, every downshift for 15+yrs...and I'll still use that feature on the track. If its as good as thy say, youd be foolish not to.
Because in a sense, rev match is cheating. True racers can heel toe and get the engine a and throttle to do exactly what rev match does. You Tube Aryton Senna NSX to see what I'm talking about.
I disagree that it's cheating. If that was the case, DCTs would be cheating too.
I honestly don't feel that assistance from a transmission is any more cheating than PTM or any other assistance to the car. Rev-matching only helps you get into gear faster and smoother. It's not doing THAT much more work. And who doesn't already blip the throttle before down shifting?
I look forward to trying it out. I don't heal/toe very well, will never track my vert and couldn't be bothered to learn to perfect heal/toe. If the feature works well I'll use it, if not, no loss, I still enjoy manual transmissions. Cars like Corvettes are toys, if technology makes them more enjoyable then that's great
