it would be far cheaper to build a factory and produce in Mexico or South America then do it in the US. This is really is not a viable in the USA for a model that does not turn much profit for fca.

You don't have to slip the clutch or ride the brakes, and heel&toe isn't always about gong as fast as possible, often it is about making the downshift as seamless as possible so as not to upset the balance of the car. You can apply the skill in

It is very difficult to directly compare to players because they do not play in a bubble one on one. The team surrounding them has a huge impact on performance.
