: Conundrum #2:Gas pedal height

As many have noted, the gas pedal sits much lower than the brake pedal. This makes me bring the seat further forward than I would like and then the brake pedal is too close. I can make a spacer out of MDF, but that's going to look cheeseball. Has anyone dealt with this yet? Ideally, I'd like the brake and gas pedal height to be equal. Help?

Hmmmmmmm. I added a spacer to the "dead pedal" area so it's equal to the gas pedal, but don't really have a problem with the gas/brake relationship. Besides, if they're equal, you'll be too far away when you step on the brake, right?

In normal conditions the brake pedal should never hit the floor. So, if I can floor the gas, I can reach the brake fine.
