If there is a tree approaching that quickly BOTH feet should be on the brake :lmao:DSC _might_ be the link between the brake pedal making the gas pedal go cold. If this is true, then turning the DSC off should solve the problem temporarily. It's a valid test, that's for sure.
The problem with left foot braking in a stick shift, beyond resting the foot on the brake pedal enough that the brakes drag, is that if one is actively braking and the need to change gears arises, then the feet have to dance. If there is a rapidly approaching tree, then the foot dance can be the difference in hitting or missing the tree.
