Which type of pedal do you prefer?

May not be thread worthy, but I was just thinking about it.

Which kind of gas pedal do you prefer? One attached at the top or a floor pedal (like BMWs)?

I can't stand anything but floor pedals now

Either way...just as long as it's shaped like a big foot

I like the floor pedals in most cases. I feel like I can plant my foot and be sure of the position where as other pedals that hang down from the top are weird. I always seem to have a different footing on them every time I press down.

Hanging pedals are easier for me to heel toe.

I have hanging pedals on my car and it took me a while to heel-toe (plus the weird height difference they have in VAG cars), whereas on the floor pedals I found it easier.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

I actually found it easier because of the height difference in VAGs. I guess my feet just naturally move at that angle.

Don't care, as long as it's fairly stiff. I don't like the light feel of the new DBW cars because the light weight makes it hard to control and twitchy, which is only amplified by the DBW system.

Gas pedal is, others aren't. Are we just talking about the gas pedal? If that's the case, then floor mounted all the way. Heel-toeing is easier with the pivot point down on the ground.
