I noticed that aftermarket pedals are required to be drilled in to become permanent. The gas pedal on my car is plastic, so wouldn't drilling into that break the entire petal itself. I'm looking at this set here, thx:
MOMO STEALTH AIRMETAL TOP PEDALS

normally there are just clamps that clamp onto the existing pedals, with momo racing pedals they might actually be permanent mounting, idk if you do have to drill it shouldn't break the plastic just be slow with the drill

i have razo's on mine that have mounting brackets but i did drill it into the pedal in a few places to get it to fit so its really solid, its really hard plastic so it wont generally break, just take the rubber cover off if their is one first, same with the clutch and brake.

alright, thx, man. the gas pedal is 5 inches long! its gonna be hard to find pedals that fit... the momo ones that im looking at are only like 4.56 inches long. so, in my opinion, that would look terrible

the clutch and the brake are metal under the rubber covers, right? that sounds like it would be a ***** to drill through

ya i dident actually drill at all i just used pointy screws and pushed really hard, generally it is clamp/brackets though just do them really tight. i diden't have to drill into either of those just the rest plate and gas., the razos i have fit over the entire gas pedal but they are quite expensive, and hard to find.

are the razos that you have good quality, like made of metal and not plastic? that sort of thing

these are the ones i have

Car Mate U.S.A. / RAZO Sport Pedais Competition Sport

and yes they are metal with metal mounting brackets, i drive and stomp pretty hard and they havent failed me yet. also has the nice heel toe thing on the gas pedal, which is what i was looking for when i originally bought them.
what do you think of these if you dont mind me asking? Im trying to add some red to my car where possible and these looks like good ones. and just using the brackets sounds pretty good to me. thx for clearing it up

those look pretty sweet. just watch the gas pedal dimensions, their are 2 versions of most of the razo stuff i think, one kit for short gas pedals and one for long ones. usually differ by like 1 or 2 numbers on the product number

the gas pedal is about 5" and the aftermarket pedal is slightly over 6" (6.14) is that much of a difference in lengths too much?

i have those exact pedals in my car, they look great. they hold up awesome, and the brackets are great. maybe once a month just check to make sure the screws hold the pedals to the brackets are tight, but other than that i love them!

nope i wouldent think so, mine are slightley bigger then my stock pedal. when u floor it it hits on the back of the arm before the bottom of the pedal anyways, so as long as it dosent rub on the side it should be fine.

id like mesure it out on a pice of paper and cut it out and put it over ur stock pedal or somthing just to be safe though if u have any concers space wise
