Afternoon All,

I have been chatting with one of our engineering / smiths members and they feewl that they can produce the curved pedals (brake and clutch) for the T-Car pedal boxes. These are supposedly more comfortable to use than the straight pedals but, of course, this is a personal preference.

I'm after two pairs so am happy to pay for some 'pre-production' items and post up how they look / fit etc..... They will be the same finish as existing pedals.

Cost wise we are [for now] looking at £180 a pair plus postage. Price may fall depending upon interest.

So, for now can we start a list on those that are interested. Please note the price, and add your name if you are serious about having a set. Firm commitment will be sort after the 'pre-production' ones are fitted and you are happy with them. Deposit will be required at that point - assume 50%.

Thank you.

Tonymg 3 Pairs is there any way you can add the T V R Logo on each one?

Hi,
My son bought a pair of the curved pedals approx two years ago for £136, they are a lot nicer to use than the originals.
They give more of a conventional set up feel, and would like to be added to the list to fit my mk3 Tuscan s covertible.

But I must admit even with curved pedals my clutch foot still slips with wet shoes frown A rubber coating would be good idea . Getting the lever point is the critical issue .

There's a product marketed for grip on sailing dinghies call pro-grip. It's basically just self adhesive 3mm closed cell foam sheet, which can easily be cut to any shape. A small rectangle of the black stuff on the pedal would probably do just the job to save feet slipping.

Awesome response.

I'll get my spare set of pedals to the geezer and get a pre-production set made up.

but what about that idea of putting a letter on each pedal?

I had already thought of that. That would require people sending their throttle pedals in for modding to get a matching set or paying for a third pedal.

At the moment, getting a set of base pedals is the priority. Customisation of these may or may not be possible or incur additional cost.

When I did the same curved fitting to my pedals a couple of years back using the Factory T440 stock, I was
told to leave the accelerator "as was".

There was a good technical reason at the time, I just can't remember what it was biggrin

I then experimented and agreed.

So my Sag has the curved brake and clutch pedal, but default accelerator pedal. We also did some tweaks
to the curved pedal when fitting to make the interface better.
