Racing Pedals???

Just wanted to know what you guys would recommend as far as aftermarket pedals....
I got a set of OBX Type-R and the [email protected]!$% gas pedal is too big.
what kind do everyone have and do they really make a difference?

I have RAZO carbon fiber pedals.....the platforms are slightly bigger than stock, and they have little pegs that are raised up to allow for positive engagement. All of that crap aside, they are really just for show[IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/IMG]

yeah, i was either thinking of getting sparco or momo. i don't think i'd suggest buying a pair online unless you are SURE that they will all fit.
just from personal experience. [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif[/IMG]

You're right, for the most part Amphiprion. However, if you take a close look and compare the pedals that are out there...you'll notice that some of the pedals are actually made to assist in heel / toe driving. Just look closely and you will see that some sets of pedals are made so that the gas and / or brake pedals have a bit of an extension towards eachother to assist in this form of driving. BUT...for the most part, most people buy them simply for show. [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif[/IMG]

The Type-R's are nice, but I would go for the Sparco's ... a world class, quality product. [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif[/IMG]

This is pretty much how it goes...if your pedals just clip on or wrap around the stock pedals, these are show only pedals....Real race pedals have to be drilled and bolted to the stock pedals to ensure a positive connection for racing conditions

Just my $0.02

True dat

Well if your not goin to race buy the one you just clip on so not to mess up you OEM pedals. And all clip on pedals are Universal.

I wonder where can I get those S2000 pedals

i got some imitation type r junks for 15 bucks for a manual set; come to find out, they are made of solid aluminum and have a great grip so i guess they arent to bad for 15 bucks
