Dual brake on VY II SS.

Now I dont know wether it's my eye's or not but has anyone seen the Commodore VY II SS add with the baby and the grandparent's disscusing who he follow's, now when the baby kick's he's feet and it then goes to the driver of the SS it show's the foot pedal's and to me he has one foot on the acelerator and the other on the clutch but if you look closely it seem's as if there is two other pedal's in the middle,
have a close look and tell me what you think, cheer's.

Maybe its a foot operated oil pump to get oil from a second sump to replace all the oil the Gen 3 burns.

No it's not the foot rest because it's between the two pedal's the driver is using,I had a good look at it this morning when the add came on and there is definetly two pedal's between the Acelerator and clutch,go fiqure.

Me too. I think you might be mistaken galaxy xr8, looks as if the left is on the footrest, right on the accelerator and clutch and brake paddles in the middle.

Re: Dual brake on VY II SS.

In a standstill picture like that yes it does look like a footrest but you have to watch the add and see him opperate the clutch and accelerator and select a gear and it then dosn't look like a footrest,I dont know about you blokes but I dont go for the footrest when changing gear's.
