      Hey folks,

      Ended up with a bunch of extras when I needed just one. Hole alignment of the original was corrected thus no dremelling is needed to fit this version. Made out of high strength virgin ABS+ with high infill for extra durability. Drop in and play! This pivots the gas pedal up a smidge which allows for better/smoother transition when heel-toeing since the stock gas pedal is fairly recessed below the brake pedal. This also helps for trail braking since my legs now flex similarly (before my left leg would sit almost an inch higher to allow further extension in my right leg for the gas).

      Looking at $20USD shipped within Canada and the US! Colour is white.

      Do you have a picture that is installed? The pictures provided in the pdf are a bit too close, good for installation but can visualize the aid adjustment.

      I apologize, this is a little 30 second paint job, but it essentially angles the gas pedal up at the pivot point which enables a smoother transition between the gas and brake pedals since the physical level difference between the two is much smaller.

      Thanks for the edification ! I really thought it was additional piece that extend to the left side of gas paddle. That would be a good product to develop.

      Wait, so you are doing a pedal extension similar to Rennline here?

      Sorry, I know I already asked you on the GolfMk7 forum but I get notifications back here if I get quoted! Lol.

      Same here, two days ago. He/she was actively replying before I sent the money, and no replies since. I will contact PayPal by EOD today. Buyers beware! Might be a scammer.

      Please let me know how it goes with PayPal via PM if you don't mind.

      I'll likely go a similar route if I don't hear something by the weekend. Last communication I heard was, "I'll get it in the mail tomorrow."

      Not a scammer. I've bought from him in the past and it went perfectly.

      Any ETA when the spacer will be delivered? I know its a long walk from Canada, just looking for a ballpark guesstimate.

      Thanks in advance!
