In autocrossing, i only do it do go back into 1st off a tight U-turn...

other than that, Brakes are cheaper than Transmissions.. no need to downshift to slow down

I cant say it wouldnt hurt to learn it, but I cant say that you MUST learn it either

EDIT: you don't have to heel-toe to blip the gas pedal before a downshift..
