    I just thought I'd post this up because I see those pedal kits in the stores and I know some people buy them. Well this is an alt idea that may work for some people and it helped me out with WEIGHT LOSS!! :p

    Cut and stick it

    Done

    It's grip tape for a skateboard, and no, you never have to replace it.

    I just need bigger pedals... gas and brake need to be a little bit closer together.

    I had the same gripe about my AllTrac. I took the pedal box out and heated the brake pdal arm with a torch, and bent it over towards the gas pedal by about 1/2". Biggest difference in the world. :)

    I got my pedals for free.

    Sparco carbon fiber pedals. Long story short, one of my "smarter" friends traded me for a neon tube that I found in the back of my other friends car.

    Real pedals though, I put grip tape on the bottoms, and had to actually drill through to install them.

    Probably best investment ever.

    although those pedels shouldn't be anywhere near 25+ shipping since our cost at work is about 2.50, the grip tape does look a hell of a lot better, another option is the pads that they sell at pep boys/autozone etc that are virtually identical to the stock ones, I slapped new ones on a few months ago and they are holding up very well

    Damn, hung like a horse! :lol:

    I wear a size 10- right on par with most other guys out there my size. Big enough, but still a little shy of bridging the gas/brake pedals without careful placement.
