I thought this was a pretty cool SM footwork video. Not too dark and good placement made it easy to see all the action. Very fast transitions. Gas/brake inputs are nearly 100% on/off as they should be.

I love the way the sand sloshes with the changes of the G's.
His foot work is like watching a well choreographed Dance.

His other videos make me want to get on the track like NOW. ;)

I noticed the sand bits as well. They were sticking to the side of the trans tunnel. Fun video and his other clips are entertaining too.

what with the left foot brake taps? ive heard thats to re align everything and make sure braking is instant when entering a corner. is that actually what its all about?

He's fighting pad knockback. Essentially cinching the system up a bit before a braking zone. Not enough to cause drag on the car but just a quick squeeze to tighten things back up. Brakes loosen up a bit under cornering loads and running over curbing.

It could be possibly used to warm up the pads also. If the particular brake pads are aggressive enough that they need very high heat to bite, they could be too cool after a long straight.

He doesn't seem to be wearing socks. :p Unless those are skin colored socks
I was kinda seeing that too. Probably just old faded Nomex socks.
