    My Foot is Too Narrow

    With the drive by wire setup, you can no longer bend the gas pedal arm. But you can buy yourself some fancy brake pedal / gas pedal covers.

    My Foot is Too Narrow

    You can wear some of my wide shoes.

    In the past, Fourstar heated my gas pedal with a torch and bent the gas pedal to where I needed

    My Foot is Too Narrow

    I just tried heel-toe downshifting, and realized my foot is too narrow to do it properly. I need a wider gas pedal or brake pedal. Any ideas? After-market
