Some say it isn't Christmas if you don't play with some toys...

Vermont Sportscar sent me a mounting kit, along with my master cylinders and balance bar. The mount kit includes some nifty aluminum captive nuts, aluminum bolts, and the steel channels they welded into the floorpans of the rallycross cars. The whole setup means I can now figure out exactly what needs to be done to mount the pedal box into the car.







So my thought, rather than sinking the floor by the inch or two I need, I’d rather trim the fuel tank hump and replace it with flat sheet. This will give me all the clearance I need, without lowering the floor at all. I was contemplating a custom fuel tank anyways, and I’m probably going to use a painless or similar wiring kit, which will then mate to the Subaru engine harness…so losing the fuse box mount shouldn’t matter. If I don’t mess with the drain channel, I can’t think of any other reasons why this would be a problem?







Off to Christmas dinner. It was a short time playing with toys, but a good one! Hmmm…a Stack would work quite nicely…

Hello, was the assembly a trade? I went to the site, I could not see your parts. Please continue to update that install.

Yeah, you won't find the pedal set on the Vermont website. The set is made by Tibuc, http://tibuc.se/, but I'm honestly not sure if it's a production piece or if they were made specifically for the Subaru USA team. I work on the production of Launch Control and had the opportunity to buy them out of the spares from a previous season of racing. It will be a couple of weeks before I can actually mount them, but I've figured out that its going to be relatively simple (in comparison to the set I put in the Rally Bug.) The hardest part, I think, is going to be building a linkage to use the factory throttle cable. The back-up plan is to simply run a new cable and housing system.
