Wider pedal covers for heel-toe

Anyone else have this issue - I have big feet and still cannot heel-toe well with the focus. The gap between pedals is huge compared to my Evo which has me spoiled, I guess.

Anyone know of a good pedal cover setup (momo, roush etc) that will help reduce the gap?

Thanks!

PS - Will the pedal covers throw me out of H-Stock? Might as well ask...

OMP 1000s - I posted about them a while back.

They actually *may* take you out of stock class - I know short-throw shifters aren't allowed.

13.2.A allows for comfort and convenience modifications that do not enhance performance/handling or materially reduce weight on the car. I think pedal covers fall within the spirit of this rule.

I have OMPs also. http://www.ompracing.it/prodotti.htm...ngelanguage=en

Uh, not in my experience. You'll probably be okay as long as you are just competing locally.

Why are you "heel and toeing" in an autocross?

Did a little checking...technically you are correct. Silly, IMO to call it "a performance advantage"...but it is seen as such.
