anybody have experience on race pedal setups?


Recommended Posts

I'm looking at the tilton and the wilwood overhung, floormount and firewall mounts. I'm leaning towards, remote mount reservoir, reverse master mount overhung assemblies.

Like the one attached

My major question is what really fits well that has a dual master/boosterless setup.

Anybody have pictures installed... it's reaching-- I know.

See:

There are four pictures there. Lance could use the floor mounts because the race seat was moved way back.

It is a nice set up. Maybe I can find some more picts.

I've been looking at the remote twin master unit that Tilton make that can be mounted vertically model # 72-650. I think the standard clutch master could be used and attach the linkage directly to the Tilton remote with some type of custom linkage adapter. Currently working on some drawings for concept. Might even be able to use the standard pedal box modified to accept the remote. Lee was talking about something like this but the pictures never got posted. This would require the remote mounted reservoirs.

In the attached links have a bit of discussion about race pedal set ups for LHD and RHD. One issue common to LHD and RHD is the apparent need for the shorter pedal lengths - 10.25" compared to 11.5" - without further modification.

Lee posted some pics showing the motomotion kit.

I have a Wilwood 340-4828.

I will be installing the same Tilton floor mount unit in my race car as in the skidmark pics. As you can see in the pics you have to cut part of the firewall out to make more room....so it's not very easy install......

stay tuned to my build blog for my install.......

And I modified the stock pedals. Certainly cheaper,

and I'm not convinced it's any heavier. A 2.5" setup will

fit- but you have to relocate the clutch master.

Which, btw, is 3/4", and can be replaced with a nice,

light aluminum cylinder.

Our rule set gets real cranky where tub mods are concerned.

Many people do fit aftermarket pedals,

but I like short periods in tech, with few questions.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
