MaxMax66 left dead pedal is selfmade

Merrigan The thing that always makes me wonder when it comes to aluminum pedal covers is how slippery are they?

I'm in a pretty cold climate. I haven't seen a temperature about freezing in over a month now and even the water from my shoes freezes when the focus has been off for a while.

Anyway, that's just my opinion. If all you are after is a look, then I guess they are OK. More power to you. They are not for me.

For a serious driver however, the deficient placement and size of the stock Focus pedals on the 5-speed models cannot be understated. For an otherwise nice car, the 12/13 Focus has to have one of the worst setups I have ever driven. Heel-Toe (roll foot) downshifting is possible but it has to be done very deliberately and with attention and is easy to screw up. The dealer let me drive an ST when I bought my SE and they are no different. Horrible.

I may oder the autovation pedals. I had a set on my SVT Contour which I just about wore through and liked them a lot. The only thing stopping me is that the aftermarket setup will do little to elevate the gas pedal. I would really like to see about making a one inch aluminum spacer to get the gas up a bit higher. Right now I'm in Winnie the Pooh mode... think, think, think... just mulling it over, whether I want to make a spacer myself.

Has anyone done any work on developing a decent spacer? Something which is robust enough for safety reasons and refined enough to look like it isn't a hack job? Something which raises the gas pedal up an inch or so?

It would be really nice to get that autovation gas pedal in a 1 inch thick model.

The Pedal i posted a pic of above. Is a FORD part. It is a perfect of a fit as possible. the break and clutch pedals are replaced with the covers and as for the gas the cover fits over the pedal and adds about a 1/2 inch to it. and the price cannot be beat.

but the focus has always been horrible for heel-toe driving.

SkyPilot here is a pic of the full set



as i said the dead pedal just isnt as good of quality as the others, you can see the rough edges and the uneveness of the pedal itself. Maybe others will have better luck than me, but it will do for now.

ihdillon Mine should be here this weekend! So excited!

The amazing thing is that I got my order in about a week. I am a big fan of buying things made in America. But in this case there isn't anything to buy.

the rough edges are not on the outside of the pedal but in the cutout areas. Its the closest match to the "RS" pedals we have
