    I would like to know too is it worth the trouble making upside pedals. The electronics are easy, i've been thinking miniduino or some other arduino based usb-board. But what are the main differences between those two setups, pros and cons?

    there's many idea from U tube....even force feed back to brake pedal using wing man pad.

    i'm trying to add something to brake pedal, gas sockup shover which is using for avoid door slam.
    when i finished it i will upload it U tube. ^.,^;;

    Ok well for starters it all comes down to personal preference, i will admit there is nothing wrong with the original pedal set-up and if your happy with it id say stick with it.
    I myself have done an inverted pedal mod and im probably more happy with the pedals this way but its not a Huge difference in fell IMO, It would all depend on a few points...
    A) are you happy with the current pedal setup?
    B) do you allready have a frame to mount them on ie, a race sim frame.
    C) do you have the knowledge and skills to do it youself ?
    if your answers are A) No B) Yes C) Yes, then i would say go ahead and do it, you can allways go back if you dont like it, tho your warrenty will be voided from opening the pedals.

    As for Heal toe i couldnt say, i have my pedals set up more for left foot braking and the gap between my brake and accelerator is to big for it....but thats the way i drive.

    hope this helps

    thanks, now i think it's up to driver what kind of style to choose.
    view the advice so far, it would be better keep the style now i use....and~!

    I have attched gas(air) shock-up shover to brake pedal,which i made up by myself
    when i finished brake pedal shock-up shover, i will up load it to U tube.
    (It gives much grip even when you slam on brake at corner.)
