    Throttle Pedal Options

    In the wake of Ag's incident, I thought I would pass this along:

    In 2013 I had the ball pop out of the Factory Porsche throttle pedal at Sears Point in my race car. Also, I wasn't a big fan of the hinge design as I had the hinge fail on my '78 911SC during an autocross many years ago. I decided I needed to find a throttle pedal that would solve both problems.

    I did a lot of looking around and found several options. I ended up buying and modifying a Wings "the third foot" pedal. This pedal has not been made for years but there were some other viable options as well.

    Here was my favorite option:

    Another option I liked:

    This one would work but is pricey:

    There is a very expensive option from Tuthill Porsche in England:

    Anyway, I thought I would pass along what I found when I researched a more reliable throttle pedal option for my race car.

    Folks,

    I miss-remembered.

    The pedal I am using now is not a modified Wings "the third foot" pedal. I bought one of those and sold it right away because it attached to the stock pedal and flopped around way too much.

    The pedal I am using now is made by Harold Williams (ex PCA GGR member now living in New Mexico). Here is what it looks like:

    It cost $165 back in late 2012. I am not sure if the price is the same or if the pedal is still available. Here is the email address for Harold if you are interested in this pedal:

    pedal

    flat spot and I both run the same pedal made by Harold, really well made and has numerous adjustments. Harold may consider making a bunch if enough people want them, really good workmanship with good adjustability

    Mike,

    For some reason in my car, I had to modify the pedal a bit to get it at the right height in relation to my brake pedal to heel and toe. I flipped the base around to move the bottom of the pedal back. I also mounted the front part of the pedal flat against the back part of the pedal. Yes, this eliminated all the adjustability of the pedal but it made the pedal perfect for me. I love the pedal and I am so glad I don't have to worry about the hinge breaking or having the ball pop out of the back of the pedal!!

    yes, really bulletproof and well made, although mine did bolt right in without any mods, either way, great pedal.
