All right, I'll be obvious.
Are the foot and the smell connected?
Is the 'foot' the human pedal extremity, or a foot on a ruler, or an animal foot?

Yesish, but the smell was not coming from the foot!

Not smoke: vapor? From a smoke machine? Was it visible? Flammable? Was it from a spray bottle? Heat source: body heat? Sun? Electric heater? Gas heater? Hot water? Fire? Combustion engine? Was there a relevant noise? Did the foot cause the smell by being in the wrong place? Did you see the foot? Was it your foot? Did the owner of the foot step on something relevant? Step through something relevant? Break something relevant? activate a relevant device?

Step on a gas pedal? Squeal some tires? Is the smell from smoking tires? Is there a race? Did someone start too early? Did they step on the wrong pedal?

Step on a gas pedal? Uh, yeah but don't we all? Squeal some tires? Is the smell from smoking tires? No and no

Is there a race? Did someone start too early?
No to these as well

Did they step on the wrong pedal? Technically, as far as I remember, no, but (curse you Galfisk), OTRT

Is the smell from rubber? Was the heat caused by friction? Did the foot step on a pedal? Car pedal? Brake pedal? Clutch? Gas? Did the person with the foot do something wrong? Not know how to do something right? Was this person involved in the proceedings? Were you? Were anyone else?

****** SPOILER *****!

This is probably a bit US centric, but I was attempting to teach someone how to drive a manual transmission. Out of nervousness, I think, she was riding the clutch, and to my detriment, I neglected to tell her that the clutch pedal should either be slammed to the floor, or smoothly but quickly let up. And once you're in gear, get that foot away! I think that my teachiing mistake was that we should have spent a good half hour with her finding the friction point and getting moving without pressing on the gas pedal.
