06+ Elise Brake Pedal Lateral Adjustment

Not sure what happened to the thread I had started on this topic yesterday, but I had spent multiple hours searching for information on the topic. Perhaps there is a moderation step of which I am unaware. So this is a re-post. The only lateral adjustment info that I found in my search was on 05's and involved popping off the OEM rivet and using one of the two remaining holes on the pedal pad to rivet or bolt the pad offset further to the right.

My problem is not the relative height of the brake and accelerator but the fact that they are too far apart laterally for me to effectively HNT. I have an 09 and would like a more elegant solution than the Razo accelerator strap-on or using the Sector 111 HNT pad in an unsafe offset manner.

Any knowledge that could be shared would be greatly appreciated.

Now I wonder if shinoo is just selling those rebranded or Vice Versa because those area exactly the same as the inokinetic kit...

Yeah I use those with great success

Edit: He doesn't sell them anymore so I guess it was #1

Thanks, they just arrived. Looks like they will fit the bill. Shinoo was a good guy to talk to as well. And so was the guy at the other place. Both good people.

That's what I have on my track car. I like the grip on them. If you track your car you may wish to consider putting some sort of spacer under the gas pedal. It was way easier to roll my foot and blipshift it that way.

I don't track my car but no self-respecting Elise driver downshifts without double clutching and blipping the throttle. The only question is can that be done while continuously braking. In my Europa back in the day it was just so easy to do the big toe little toe thing all the while standing on the brake while headed into a corner. Just trying to recapture that former glory. The older I get the faster I was.

Just gonna replace the throttle pedal to start and see how that feels. Btw, is there any reason NOT to use a torch when removing the stock pedal if one is careful?

I'm using the gas pedal from shinoo, but my brake pedal is so much higher than my gas pedal I still can't heel toe the car at all even after 2 years ownership.
The brake pedal that shinoo sells will bring the gas pedal as close as you could possibly want to the brake pedal.

My plan to change the height issue is to shim the gas pedal up to the level of the brake pedal.

Well, depress the brake pedal, measure where it ends up, and don't raise the gas pedal any further than that, preferably a little less.

I'm not an advocate for rolling your foot when heel toe shifting. I prefer pivoting and using you heel and toe, makes it much easier to go from one car to another and keep consistent pressure on the brake.
