Has anyone made a large accelerator pedal for traditional heel throttle blip? I guess I am just going to get a shop to make one out of aluminium and put some anti slip tape (nothing fancy)<p><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img405.imageshack.us/img405/4063/s60pedals8yu.jpg" BORDER="0"></A>

Re: Has anyone made a large accelerator pedal (Helmut Ranff)

Helmut...on a serious note. You'll probably hurt your self with that design. I could imagine you mashing the gas only for it not to come up because the bottom half is jamed in the carpet or in the floor board.<p>Isn't there a way you could hing the bottom of the plate with some arms connect to the peddal? I would think that would be safer than just bolting something to the peddel.

Re: Has anyone made a large accelerator pedal (KillerB)

Yeah that picture is from an M5 and is very similar their OEM. It has a black<br>hing in the bottom. I guess I will just make a similiar design<p>I thought I would ask to see if someone has already done it. I guess I will be the first <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

You want a dead pedal in place of the accelerator? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Has anyone made a large accelerator pedal (Helmut Ranff)

The true old heel/toe method seems somewhat dead. Even in purpose-built race cars they now use the left/right side of right foot technique. I have tried both in various cars and find it easy to threshold brake with the nouveau style. To that end, I changed my pedals to these:<p><IMG SRC="http://www.r-series.org/omp2.jpg" BORDER="0"><br>
