    Ive read a few threads where people have mentioned that they launch the model s using the following method:

    1. Press brake pedal down
    2. Press accelerator pedal down (Car now shows warning on screen saying both pedals are pressed)
    3. Release brake

    Is this more effective than just mashing the accelerator?

    Thanks all!

    How do you press the brake and the accelerator with the same foot?

    You don't. You use both feet to do this.

    But I simply launch my S by pressing the brake with my left foot, release it and immediately press the accelerator with my right foot.

    I know my car is only a lowly Renault Zoe, but I "launch" by pressing down the accelerator while in N and than shift to D.
