Despite the disadvantages, it does provide ample room for heel-toe action (my main problem with the factory wheel).
Thanks! Do you have a picture you could share?

I'm having a problem hitting the brakes when trying to get the accelerator pedal... Big feet and all.

Some pictures from my build thread. Not the greatest photos since they weren't really intended as steering wheel photos, but should give you an idea.




Pedal box: installing one is not for the feint of heart- lots of cutting required and cannot be reverted to stock easily:

My car comes back from the paint shop Friday, so I could provide more then.

I know this thread has wandered a bit but I weighed my old and new wheel tire combinations on an accurate scale. Here's what I found;

Bare Rota 15x7 13.6 lbs.

Phone Dial w/195 Firestone 41.6 lbs.

Rota w 205/50 Conti. 32.8 lbs.

I was very surprised by these results. I have not yet weighed a bare phone dial.
