FYI - D-Zug pedals

I fell in love with the D-Zug pedal the second I saw one the other day (how it escaped me all this time is beyond me).
Anyway, just want to let you all know Rebel has them in stock.

From the original Pelican listing when they carried these "D-Zug Produkte's 917/935 style adjustable throttle pedal replicates the look and feel of the pedal found in the Porsche 917, 935 and other Porsche Motorsports cars built in the 60's through the 80's."

Had it, hated it.
How can one be more precise with the middle part of the foot, as opposed to the ball or toes? Simple anatomical consideration tells us we write with the fingers, not the elbows. Same applies with fine metering of the throttle.

Suffice it to say, we all have our "style" of driving. Porsche used it so it can't be THAT bad.

Porsche has done plenty of dumb things over the years.

Any chance someone with this pedal can measure the distance between the pivot point and farthest hole? I'm looking to quicken the throttle on my car.

Frogert, I'll measure for you as soon as I get mine.

Minoclan, I called them because I couldn't either, they picked right up. They take PayPal.

Thanks that is exactly what I did. One on the way.
I had this pedal from Gabe at DZUG in my car that I sold. I can tell you that it was amazing.

Minoclan, can you expand on the amazing-ness of this pedal?

The pedal was very adjustable. No matter how I positioned my foot it was comfortable and had adequate contact. I did not powdercoat the pedal and never had a problem with my foot slipping off. I am buying it again for my new restomod.

I don't drive hard enough....and therefore need to brake hard enough, to heel-toe. My brake pedal sits prouder than my gas pedal and unless I'm braking hard from 80 mph in to a hard turn I ain't pushing it in far enough. The adjustability of this pedal and the curved surface leads me to believe I can adjust it to allow me to get the little "roll my ankle" throttle blip I like to allow smoother down shifts.
Plus, who am I kidding, it's such a cool piece!

Looking at this pic, it seems this pedal would make it easier to"heel and toe" using the mid foot for accelerator and the toe of the foot on the brake. Just a thought.
Also, never seen the accel cable routed like that, guess it's a race car thing.

Thats a much better way of explaining what I wa trying to explain

I saw that pic somewhere and I think you are correct, IIRC it was on a track car.

If Someone can't heel toe that set up then I'd say it's hopeless.

Well that is a new one for me. Never seen that before. I am hoping that is a dedicated track tool and not a road car.

I have the D-Zug in my 78 SC and love it! I also have the Hargett shifter and love it so don't take my word.

Froggert, I got my pedal today. What specifically did you want measured? Was pre install or post?

Had one of those gas petal in my first VW a 1957 36hp Bug. Was my high school in 1970's. Was orginial equipment, I think 1957 was the last year of the roller
