At no time did I call you an idiot but I must confess I was thinking it.

And please point out where I contradicted myself.

Implied then!!!

By saying "in the right gear" and yet saying you should use the brakes to slow the vehicle not the engine.

Surely you can see that by being in the "right gear" you are also using engine braking???

Not if you're accelerating.

I could go into a detailed explanation but it would be far easier for you to buy a copy of the police driving manual 'Roadcraft' and all will be revealed.

OK. Who is going to explain the "Heal and Toe" technique? Which is, as you know, much used with auto boxes.

I cant find my wife's copy of Roadcraft, so from memory, you slow the car and select the correct gear for the speed to which you have slowed. Manual boxes only.

Cod will be able to explain that cos he drives cars so fast he gets discbrake fade and at those speeds he's bound to be toeing and heeling.

Anyway, I too surrender.
