Thumbs up Cheap upgrade!

JDM Non-slip racing pedals!

Who needs real racing pedals when you can put grip tape on your stock ones? I was at the local skate shop called All-A-Board and picked up a bit of scrap of basically adhesive sandpaper and I must say I really like the results!

I used the sandpaper to scuff the rubber pedal covers then cut out sections to fit the pedal. A razor blade works great for trimming to the actual shape of the pedal.



Lol $2 modification!

I've always found as soon as it starts getting hot they just slip and slide around a bunch. Never could keep them on, so I just got new rubber for the pedals.

the grip tape works great, but the clutch pedal wore down my shoe sole so quick... so i went with itrx/s2k pedals.

Working great so far! Took a little bit of time to get used to the feeling, but I can say it was worth the effort so far.

Wow, great idea. Get Black Magic brand grip tape. Resists water and lasts the longest

Gas pedals should be smooth.

But I like.

Never thought of that.. Makes sense though. Starting from a stop would be easier with no tape on the throttle but you just gotta be a boss!

what about heel-toeing? actually you might get a workout from it lol or a cramp because you'd be using different muscles to push the pedal.
