so, iv'e been have'n troubles with my gas pedal, every time i hit the brakes hard my foot will hit gas and rev out the motor.
thinking about it i decided to make adjustments,then i remembered the manual pedal was offset more than the auto pedal.

i just got the manual pedal on sunday thanks( zkars), got it all set up today at work . and its about 1 inch centre to centre of the rod closer to tunnel. 8)
and if i need more room for my club foot i got maybe a half inch. :mrgreen:

hope it works out, ill get pics when i re install it.

Interesting about the auto pedal. I had to heat and bend my pedal since it was so close to the brake, couldn't figure out why. Now I recall my car was originally automatic.
