Gas pedal too low

the accelerator is too low on the SVT. I turn my right heel and I can't reach the accelerator.It's tough to double cluth unless the brake is depressed all the way. anyone else notice that?

I have exactly the same problem- there is absolutely no way to heel and toe with the pedals at factory setting. I believe that the best solution is to adjust the accelerator......

That's funny, I have no problem heel-and-toeing on my SVTF. But then I have size 11-1/2 EEE feet...

On some cars (my old Mustang for one), you can adjust the pushrod between the brake booster and the master cylinder. I don't know if this is possible on the Focus.
