It turns out it is possible to heel-toe on a Golf MKV. The throttle is still working while the brake is engaged. Cool. I also think I managed to complete a working heel-toe (though a very poor one). Not that it has any sense at road speeds, apart the smoothness and good noise.You probably can't, my A4 would decouple the throttle with brakes engaged.
Many cars with a brake-throttle override have a built in delay that is long enough to allow heel-toe and left foot braking. I've tracked a number of said cars and have never had an issue. I've been told our GT3 RS has one such system. If it does, it's never interfered with anything I've tried to do in the car, and I've not been able to find any strong verification the car has such a system.It turns out it is possible to heel-toe on a Golf MKV.

I partly disagree.Can't heel-toe on any vehicle I currently own - they're either automatics (in which case it's essentially pointless) or they're motorcycles, on which you *can't*. When I drive a manual car, I often do.
So the Dart is laid out worse than my 19 year old diesel pickup?I can't; didn't learn because the Dart's pedals are poorly positioned for it. Gas pedal is well to the side and far behind the brake pedal, so I can't cover both without my foot being in a super weird and uncomfortable position that I can't control well, so I end up either jabbing the brakes or overreving the engine.
I meant additional weight transfer on top of what I intent to apply with the brake.Heel-and-toe involves braking which always equates to weight transfer. I think you're referring to just rev-matching.
Heel/toe involves rev matching but heel/toe != rev matching. I rev match on every shift but I very rarely heel/toe.Heel/toe downshifting is a good technique to use. It makes for a smoother drive for passengers. Heel toe downshifting prevents wear on the clutch by rev-matching which increases the life of the clutch.
