Possible to code out throttle cut when braking?

On several occasions (mostly on the track) I've been annoyed by the throttle being cut when hitting the brakes. Is it possible to code out or disable this? Car is a 2008 6MT model.

I understand that this is a safety feature to prevent unintended acceleration, but the clutch pedal does a pretty good job at that too.

Thanks.

I don't know the answer, but just curious as to why you'd want that. Is this for rev matching?

left foot braking and rapidly bedding in/getting brakes to temperature. Never had an issue with it when rev matching, seems to only be an issue when the clutch is engaged (i.e. not pressed).

Pretty sure that this is deactivated automatically with DSC off. I had no issues left foot braking on the track or on canyons.

Weird. I experienced it last night with DSC off. Full transparency, I had new tires put on today and was trying to have a little bit of burnout fun with the old ones. Throttle cut = no standing burnout.

Makes sense on the brake bedding. I would think the benefits under LF braking would be minimal given that you're not likely to engage much throttle while trail braking anyway, but then I haven't played with this much so maybe there's something to it. I have heard of using the technique for turbo cars to keep the boost pressure up.

You canít do a standstill burnouts in newer bmws without a line lock. On track with dsc off you can still trailbrake the car

I left foot brake on track all the time. No throttle cut. DSC off all the time.
