Left Foot Breaking - Why and How

Wednesday, 19 March 2014 07:05

Left-foot braking is the technique of using the left foot to operate the brake pedal in an automobile, leaving the right foot dedicated to the throttle pedal.

It contrasts with the more usual practice of using the left foot to operate the clutch pedal, leaving the right foot to share the duties of controlling both brake and accelerator pedals. At its most basic purpose, left-foot braking can be used to decrease the time spent between the right foot moving between the brake and throttle pedals in performance driving, and can also be used to control load transfer.

It is most commonly used in auto racing because simultaneously pressing the gas and brake pedals keeps turbo pressure and reduces turbo lag.
