ACS pedal install Question...

I've installed my ACS pedals yesterday nite

Man.. i installed the brake pedal first, and it was a pain in the ass but finally got them on :smile:

I did the gas pedal last and it was easy.

As i cleaned everything up and admired my work, i notice the gas pedal was a bit crooked. Its not too bad, but its off like several mm upwards. i felt stupid!!!

I was wondering if i should removed it and re-drilled the holes, would the bolts and nuts hold the pedal just as tight since the holes would be very close to each other?? Or should I just leave it.....i have pics, but they are on my home computer.

Should be fine....because when you clamp

it down, the new nuts will still grab the plastic at the new point. You may want to use a very thin washer behind the nut to prevent it from pulling through the hole.

I messed mine up a bit too so I just carefully enlarged the hole in the direction I wanted the pedal to go. The screws hold fine as long as the nut doens't fall through the hole.

If you need thin washers, go to a local R/C hobby shop since they specialize and small hardware for those types of cars.

Thanks,

I'll just drill some holes to reshift it down a bit

I was just afraid that the pedal will slide up and down a bit if it wont hold still properly

I usually try to warn everyone to preposition them 1st with 2 sided tape.

Then to use a center punch to start the holes. I love my ACS pedals. With the Rockport shoes I wear the grip on the pedals is much more pronounced.

I think I'm going to replace my M dead pedal with the ACS to get the full effect.
