pedals

just a quick question. do any of you have any recommendations for pedal upgrades? I've been contemplating changing mine to something a bit more grippy (and, of course stylish ) with what pedals have any of you had success?

I have a set of Vosstech track pedals. They are brushed aluminum. A little too much bling! bling! for me in terms of looks, but they did help me to learn heel-and-toe. However, I don't like extension on the bottom of the throttle pedal: it gets in the way, especially when experiencing some brake fade.

HTH,

I'm not worried about the bling factor, although I want them to look acceptable. the biggest thing I want is improved grip for heel-and-toeing and perhaps a thinner pedal for a bit more legroom. hmm, interesting take on the heel extension. didn't think of that happening. something to consider

Most of the 'track pedals' have this extension. I am considering cutting it off with a hacksaw. It doesn't really help promote proper heel-and-toe technique in our cars. I use the "roll the side of your foot over to blip the throttle" method, which produces the most consistent results for me.

After a good 10-15 minutes on a track, sometimes, depending on the track & conditions, I will experience some brake fade. Given enough fade, I may have to put my foot really deep into the brake pedal, causing my heel to touch the extension piece on the throttle. This usually happens while I'm still in my higher gear, and I have noticed it tends to lessen the braking effect.

This can also occur for me when I'm autocrossing, since there, a generous application of the brake (read near SLAM!) is often necessary.

Sorry for rambling,
-Z.

that could create a problem. I suppose the only thing would be to cut it down to where it doesn't look like shyte. what was the cost on your pedals?
