    I got the G27 "Tilton style" pedal pads from DSD, which look and feel great. But they are all the same height, which made heel & toe a bit difficult. At least for me. I ended up over-revving badly...

    So I offset the brake pedal and clutch pedal by adding some 1/4" plastic pads. I ended up offsetting them by 3/4", which feels good to me. Problem solved.

    But just out of curiosity: How much offset do you guys have on your brake pedal, compared to the gas pedal? And how much is common in a real race car?

    On my G27 I just moved the brake and gas closer together and learned to heel toe this way, so it feels good for me now.

    your post may have me reconsidering though :)

    Learning proper heel/toe has spilled over to my everyday driving, so I have also learned the process in my real cars - on my Mazda 3 i had to re-position the pedals. Of course i don't heel toe every time i need to slow down, but nice to be able to do when i'm in the mood.

    What do you think is better for my G25. Buy new better pedals or just mod for break pedal with load cell (how good is for heel & toe) ?
