Best aftermarket pedals?

Hi all -

Don't know if it is just me but I am having a hard time heel toeing with these pedals. My Corvette wasn't great but a lot better. Does anyone have a suggestion for a good set of aftermarket pedals?

Thanks,
Max

hmm.. I thought I've heard something about them improving the spacing on the 1LE for better heel toe.. I know my friend looked for pedal covers and applied it just to the accelerator to make it a little easier... as for aftermarket pedals im not so sure.

Just do a search for camaro racing pedals.... many come with a tab on the side of the accelerator pedal to aid in heel toe shifting.

I am 5'10" and have a size 10 shoe. (If you have longer legs or bigger hooves this may change things) I have zero issues with this but you can't heel toe in the car in the traditional sense.

Place you big toe and ball of you foot on the brake and you should easily be able to roll the other side of your foot onto the gas to blip the throttle. I can get more than enough pedal force on the track to use the brake with just the big toe and side of my foot. Your heal will be planted on the floor so it is just a roll of the ankle to accomplish this.

The brake and gas pedal are to close to each other for me. would be great if somebody came up with a solution.

There are only two options in life. Fight or flight. Most people run. Almost all people run. But not us. The difference between us and everyone else is that we run towards the gunfire. And that makes all the difference.
