Not quite, I've been lurking for months, but thanks for such an enlightening reply.

It's not that simple to just look at feet doing it. I watched my parents drive and honestly when I really got out there watching didn't help at all. You have to feel for the right times to move your feet. There aren't really different shifting techniques while downshifting or upshifting either, shifting is shifting.
No kidding. I'm not talking techniques
per se, like "Flying Dragon Downshift" vs. "Crouching Monkey Downshift". I'm talking about technique
; as in proper
technique. The right way to do it. Some commentary from the driver would be necessary. Think of it as a ride-along style vid like one you might see on Top Gear, only with the camera in the footwell.
This is obviously not going to be anything more than a tutorial. You're not going to be able to go jump in a car and take off. However, you will
know what heel/toe looks like (and why heel/toe is such a misnomer). You will
know that you ease the clutch out when rev matching for a downshift, etc.
I expect a lot of "Oooooh, so that's
how its done" moments.
