Lookin good guys... I've driven a car with a foot plate before and I actually found it some what slippery if my shoes were wet. Do you have the same issue?

2 reasons.

1. I don't like the shape of the revised gas pedal, the bottom is different, and IMHO, it looks really funky.

2. There is an ECU reflash that cuts engine power if the gas and brake are applied simultaneously. There are times, when I'm powering through a corner that I brake and accelerate at the same time. I don't want or need any nannies.

FIGS foot plate won't let your foot slip. The area at the top of each circle is raised just enough to add traction.

If you can't get the group buy going all the parts only come to $120 so it's one of the cheapest upgrades you can do to the F

I would give you the same two answers as Lou. I really don't want a Nannie stopping me from heel/toe driving.

I wouldn't heel toe the F. I just left foot brake sometimes and I don't want the power to get shut off and spin me into the tulips.

Most performance mods need a watch and timed course to demonstrate actual improvement. Few deliver the advertised claims. Many are actually worse than stock. The best performance mods are made to the driver.

Emotional arguments - They're not just for chicks anymore.

Once I had noticed what you had done I looked around to see what my options where.
The pad Nigel got me is an OEM Toyota/Lexus part that guys in Japan have been using.
http://www.nigel-jdmparts.com/pedal-for-foot-brake
I had him send me one and when I recived it we learned that it is a direct replacement for most Toyota/Lexus cars but not the ISF. He did a little research and found that guys in Japan have been glueing the pad to the stock rubber pad. I have knocked my stock rubber pad off with my foot a few times I didn't like the idea of glueing on something bigger to kick off. That is what lead me to fabbing the little mounting plate. Using this part is what's new but not the idea of changing the e-brake pedal pad.
Looking to buy the aluminum parking pedal in the link for my ISF.

It says modification needed, what exactly is the modification? Do I have to fabricate my own custom plate in order to mount this aluminum pedal?

Thanks.

Yes, you will have to make a plate that will accept the pad as shown in the photos from the original post.

i use it all the time as well. what i have found though is that if you apply it too soon, the shift lever never quite clicks into place in 'P'. like i have to let it roll ever so slightly before the shifter clicks, but prior to the car rocking into place as if the tranny is holding the weight of the car in place. which i don't like and is why i use the e-brake to begin with.

anyone have a similar experience.

also, OP, love the e brake plate, looks great. the floor piece though, not so much a fan, seems like would hurt my heel in flip flops. ha
