Help!!!! Need answer quick!

OK, this is my dilema: I have autocross coming up this weekend and need to get toe and heel way better so:

I am finding the gas pedal on my ZX3 is very flat and not very vertical at all. THis is making toe and heel shifting freaking hard since I have size 12 ft and the pedals are too close together to begin with. I am wondering if switching to the SVT pedal setup as the accelerator is a hanging mount, rather than a pivot on my ZX3 gives a more verticl pedal making toe and heel easier.

Has anyone found this as well or is it jsut me?

I heel toe easily with my 12.5" foot. I don't make my foot horizontal, I just put my foot inbetween the two pedals, and roll from brake to gas accordingly... no problems at all.

ok, thanks I will try that, I am used to to being able to mash on the gas with the corner of my heel, the car I learned was a 540i and the gas pedal was enormous!
