I'm looking for the distance between the pivot point on the ground and the furthest mounting hole for the threaded rod. I'm trying to quicken the accelerator by increasing mechanical advantage and want to compare the distance on the D-Zug versus Rennline and stock pedals. Thanks.

If you increase the mechanical advantage of the pedal, you INCREASE the travel.

The rod is all thread and there are multiple holes on the back of the pedal. Also it has two sets of mounting holes at the base which also gives more adjustability. I'd say you could set this up anyway you desire, even use a longer piece of all thread if the one it comes with isn't enough. I will post a couple pics I took later but I'll tell you the difference was immediate. MUCH BETTER response, no lag.

Would I need to use the highest or lowest mounting hole to decrease the pedal travel? Maybe I have this backwards..

Lowest will make the pedal prouder along with the forward base mount to push the base further back.

I'm not the brightest bulb on the tree but wouldn't it be relative to the rods and pivot points, etc...? I sucked at physics in school so I can't make sense of it but my old stock pedal with an aluminum add on had a bit of play in it....you could push the pedal an inch in before the throttle would rev. This pedal removed all of that; the second my foot touches the pedal and starts to depress it responds. Maybe I just had a crappy pedal before.

Somehow your new installation removed the slack in the linkage, so its all good.

I had the same problem and spend hours of adjustment fiddling from the front to the back before I eliminate that lag.

Just enjoy it

Thanks for the pictures! I'm running a throttle cable instead of the stock rod in my car and have adjusted the play already.
