Heel-Toe Brake pedal

So one thing I noticed is that the orientation of the ST's brake and gas pedal makes it kinda tricky to heel-toe downshift, something I got used to doing in my SVT...anybody have any tips on how to correct this?

I did a quick google search and it doesnt look like they make aftermarket brake and gas pedals...

Add a pad onto the gas pedal. I had stuck a 3/8" rubber pad with a super sticky backing on the gas pedal of my SVT Contour.. Then covered the pedal AND the pad with a 'sock' (made from a Isotoner glove, inverted fingers and zip tied past edge of top of pedal)
It worker perfectly for 13 years...
You could make a pad of all sorts of materials, and attach it with all sorts of devices..
Whatever, as long as it raises the surface of the gas pedal to be closer to the level of the brake.... You are good to go.

How different are the MK3 pedals from MK2? Perhaps THESE would work...

Here's what I did on mine... It's lifted by 1.5in. Much easier to heel toe now!

Does seems kinda much. 2cm or 2.5cm should be good.
It's a pretty cool idea though, might try something like that.
