Toe/Heel solved (I think)

$39.50 with free express shipping...went on easy with 2 screws and it will help but will not know for sure until on track...so will report back. I do wear very thin driving shoes so we shall see.

AWESOME customer service...call Brian

That pedal extension looks to be the cure. I have a full SRP pedal set on the way so I'll chime in as well once I get it installed.

Classic stuff on the Senna video. I have no idea what the pat-pat-pat on the throttle is though, never have seen anyone else ever do that. There is no pro driver who is not skilled at H&T (unless there is an auto-blipper/paddle-shifter).

Hey Z are you mounting all of the pedals or just the throttle? Looks like the OP ordered just the throttle, so I think I will follow that route.
Agree on the Senna Vid, I'd guess it's something with the handling or adjusting the slip angle of the car.

Should help a lot, I installed a full set of pedals and pushed the brake pedal closer to the gas as well. Need to be sure brake hgt fully depressed still allows heel access to gas pedal.

That was part of Senna's style and how he would get the car to dance on the ragged edge. Not something for amateurs or even most pros to be messing with.

The heel & toe part however, is text book perfect and something that everyone should strive to emulate.

With my size 12s, I'd be afraid I would be on the gas accidentally while braking on the right edge of that pedal.

I do like to emulate Senna with the white socks and slip ons though.

Sorry, I missed your post

I ordered the SRP set of 4 but only installed the dead pedal and throttle pedal. Though being this would build up the height of the throttle pedal. Bottom line- it's still a bit tricky, but now I can H/T even on the street if I want to

This is the only thing that's kept me from trying this pedal; I'm already tight on legroom and don't want to add another layer to the gas pedal...

I'm 12 and no problem...remember the camaro pedals are very far apart much more than other cars. I tried wearing hiking boots recently and turned around immediately. it's only 2 screws and if it works against you then pop it off and thats $40 down the drain. You will not notice a height change.

There is no doubt that shoes make a BIG difference. My running shoes just don't work. The soles are too thick and grippy. I don't have the feel and slip I prefer. Driving mocks generally work well (note Senna's choice of shoes) but my favorites are a pair of LLBean deck shoes with thin soles. I have great feel through them and they will slide off the pedals allowing for the smoothest shift action. If your shifting isn't as smooth as Senna's, experiment with different shoes. Im assuming you track guys have proper racing shoes?

I just used he SRP kit at Sebring last weekend and wow, what a difference. With my Puma ses and the pedals i had very little trouble with heel toes shifts. On the street i actually find it a little more difficult becaus the brake pedal is higher than the throttle but at the track they are level making it easy to roll the foot over.

Well cool guys. I emailed him yesterday and he had me go ahead and purchase the separate gas pedal for the Subaru BRZ and then send him the order number w a reminder to instead make it a Camaro gas pedal. Stuck with the machined (no-charge) surface and satin (also no-charge) silver finish. Hopefully it looks cool having a silver gas pedal with black brake and clutch pedals?

I don't really know what to do about the other two pedals yet but I wasn't too thrilled by any of the options, currently I just removed the oem rubber covers and painted the metal blanks with black bed-liner for grip. This is starting to come off however so I either need to do a more thorough job with a higher quality bed liner product or come up with a different strategy. Any one done anything interesting with these?

that is referred to as "throttle steer"

Z,

Thanks for the feedback. Sounds like the route for me to take also.

Yup, just installed it, it works. Still take a little getting used to but much less ankle rotation is now needed making things much easier. I wear a size 12 and have wide feet so now I can pretty much feel both pedals under my foot anytime I brake, so a throttle blip is as easy as picking my heel up off the floor and rolling my foot a bit, pretty cool. Will keep practicing before attempting on-track. Nice product, great finish and everything.
