2002 Chevrolet Corvette Z06: Great Pedals
April 16, 2010
Just had my first evening in our long-term Z06, and I love the layout of the pedals. As Ed has written, the seating position is bit weird, and as Scott has written, the shifter won't have you rushing the gearchanges.
But the pedals are perfectly set up for heel-and-toeing. It's very easy to let your big toe do the braking while the right side of your right foot prepares to blip the throttle.
When I bent down to take a photo of the pedals this morning, I noticed that the clutch and brake pedals are beautifully finished. They have a more rough-hewn, function-before-form look than the polished pedals that are fashionable today, and I think they're better for it. So instead of 1 photo, I took 3 photos of this well executed detail.
