Pedals?

Just wondering if anyone knows where I can get race style pedals for my AU. I'm after them for Auto and for a brand that people are happy with. Maybe from experience.

Thanks

Re: Pedals?

you should be able to get these from any styling shop. i got a set of OMP pedals from RallyDesign in the Uk when I was over there at Christmas. and they look great. i would say that if you were happy with the style, bugger the brand name.

You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you protect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it.

Re: Pedals?

arent most types of pedals like that technically illegal ? not offering enough foot slip stoppage or something ?

i only have the stock race style pedals that came with my car, start checking out places like supercheap or revolution racegear or something

Don't do it! At least no with an auto, it looks way to rice IMO

we put some supercheap ones on the meteor then took it for a RWC....no one said anything about them. all they picked up was the steering wheel cover, had to remove it to pass as it was too slippery.

Re: Pedals?

Are the AU pedals the same as the BA ?

If so, you should consider the FPV alloy pedals. I've got them in my XR6T & find them good, no slipping. Look great too.

Re: Pedals?

Thanks guys for your idea's. I was in at supercheap today and saw some nice looking pedals. I wanted FPV pedals, but at 270 a pair, thats too much. I thought about taking a gt for a test drive. Out with FPV pedals, back with AU pedals. hehe

I'm not sure whether the pedals from the BA are the same. I couldn't see why they would be different though.

The FPV pedals just a slip on to the steel fitted pedals. You take your old rubbers off and put the metal ones on.

These type of "sports pedals" aren't illegal as they have rubber between the metal for grip. The ones that are straight metal with holes in them are the illegal ones.

Don't buy the type that Supercheap sell as they are fitted by clamps at the back. Unless you keep an eye on them, if they come undone while you are driving you could be in all sorts of trouble.
