Racing pedals

Anybody put raceing pedals on their clutch and brake on a YJ. If so how did you do it? I'm having trouble with my clutch pedal coming off. Any ideas on how to make it stay on? I know that there are YJs with the racing pedals but I just can't figure out how they get them to stay on. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Racing pedals

Most I have seen just bolt onto the plates behind the rubber petal. Don't have em on my YJ, but seen em on a few yotas around school.

Re: Racing pedals

Yeah I know that they just bolt on, but I'm having a hard time getting the clutch to stay bolted on, I'm wanting to know if anyone has any tricks on how to get them to stay bolted on.

Re: Racing pedals

Yes. Pet peeve. Had a buddy with something like size 13 barge looking shoes,always untied. Drove a VW bug. Ya ever see the pedals in a Bug? Some country's postage stamps are bigger. Real men drive real Jeeps that have pedals big enough for their real men's boots! I just made that up.... I picked out a set of pedals that the rubber was raised horizontal rows with chrome metal slats and tabs to hold on to original pedal. I also got the matching parking brake and dimmer switch pedals. I actually bought a second set so when the chrome started to get a little rusty I'll swap em out and clean up the first set, the were cheap. Now the backs of the new pedals were curved. Had a friend that welds make up a couple of adapter plates that I bolted to where the original rubber was and were curved to fit the new pedals. I used some contact cement and the tabs to hold em. 4 years now no problems. It only raised the pedal height about 3/4 on an inch.

Re: Racing pedals

Racing pedals?

How much faster does it make your Jeep run in a quarter mile?

Or does it make the Jeep corner like a 'Vette?

Re: Racing pedals

Yeah hahaha you are really funny. I put racing pedals in my jeep because they give me better grip when my shoes are wet and also when the get all caked up with mud you can just take them out hose em off and put them back in good as new. But I think that I got them fixed now to where they will stay on so hopefully it will work.

Re: Racing pedals

Oh and my jeep still corners like a jeep and only goes as fast as the straight 6 4.2 lt. engine turning 32" tires will go.

Re: Racing pedals

I did a little back sliding, I put the sway bar on. I did use the quick disconnect kind of links. Handles a lot better on the road. I've also seen pedals that had pieces of "expanded metal" http://www.mcnichols.com/products/expanded/ tack welded to them. This really gave good gripage. Quick, cheap, good. Don't try driving in your bare feet though.

Re: Racing pedals

I bought a set of those racing pedals this morning -- didn't really help much. I still get tired pedaling uphill. Next year I hope I can afford an engine.

Curb feelers? You mean the wire? Haven't seen those for awhile, I though that's what fenders are for.
