Voted for the organ type. I have used it on a BMW 3 series and its very convenient to use. You can rest your foot at an angle comfortable to you and floor it as much needed. I personally found this better in flooring the pedal too. I find flooring the suspended pedal a little less straightforward.

In my humble opinion, i guess most of the advanced driving techniques like heel-toe shifts, left foot braking were conceptualized keeping in mind an organ type A-pedal.

I have been experimenting with these techniques and in a floating pedal setup even with my size 11 foot, i find it quite difficult to execute the heel-toe down shifts. What i do instead when i drive a floating pedal setup is, i use a 50-50 split of my foot to tackle both the brake and accelerator pedal, which again is pretty risky since there is always a possibility that the foot might slip off one of the pedals.

Same thing goes for left foot braking since in a floating setup its very easy to hit the wrong pedal when you are running through your paces.

Another thing i observed is that with a floating type setup once has to move the legs more since your foot has to either travel with the pedal or once has to slip his foot over the pedal with increase input.
But with an organ type setup your foot always rests on the pedal and firmly anchored to the floor and with the correct seating position once just needs to flex his ankle to dial in the inputs.

Hence having driven both types of pedal setups , as per my personal observations and preferences , i have voted for the organ type pedal setup.

I remember the old Omni that my father had, it had the Organ type accelerator. It was so easy and natural. Then he bought 800 that had Suspended accelerator. It was weird. I had to force my foot on it, at times with toes, before getting used to it.

Voted for Organ type. This is how accelerators should be.
