Hey all,
Purchased my 09 coupe last week. Im already going to buy the 2" seat drop kit but was curious if anyone has made/purchased custom pedals. im 6'5 very long legs, i can make it work but on long drives in stop and go my leg fatigues because its literally bent at a 90 degree angle the entire time, clutch especially ..

Currently the factory pedal frames on both clutch/brake are bent 3" outward towards the driver..
was wondering if i could have someone fab a pedal frame pulled 3" inward ? is this possible or is the pedal a little more complex then what im seeing

You might run into a problem with pedal travel if you go too far back. I know the pedals are electronically adjustable, so the stop has to be built into the frame and not the floor, but I think when fully back they are awfully close to the floor when fully depressed.

MoparMap mentioned your adjustable pedals, you are aware of that aren't you?

The seat lowering kit will help with headroom and reduce some of that 90 degree angle you have today, but the kit just drops the seat down closer to the floorboard, it won't give you more for/aft.

No one makes a kit like what your asking. The only kits are to adjust the brake or clutch pedal, to move them up to align better with the gas pedal for heel/toe braking. Here's a supporting vendors website, he does a lot of custom work, ask him what your trying to do.

When you say, "he pedal frames on both clutch/brake are bent 3" outward towards the driver." Are you saying their already modified or they are stock?? If stock, yeah maybe someone can do something for you, try Ipsco (the company in the link).

Here a thread from a few years ago started by a big guy who had similar issues, take a look and see suggestions he was given. Good luck and enjoy your new Viper!! Mike

I have the same issue. And my size 15 feet are too big for my left foot to fit between the clutch and the side of the pedal box to rest on the dead pedal.

And you obviously don’t want to rest your foot on the clutch. That little bit of pressure is no bueno.

It makes for very uncomfortable drives. Even short ones
