My first thougt was "Shortround", but then I thought better...
Here ya go, try this on for size. http://www.drive-master.com/pedals.htm
I am a petite woman. I don't have any disabilties. I'm just short. I normally don't have a problem driving any car (small or large). Recently, I was looking in buying a Mazda Miata MX-5 2010. If I move the seat all the way, I can reach the clutch but have to stretch to push it all the way in. I would like to feel more comfortable driving and sit further from the steering wheel.
Do you know what shops in DFW would install pedal extenders? I'm interested in a integrated sporty look.
How much would it cost to do it?
Is it legal to add this modifcation to my car?
Will it pass inspection?
Please let me know ASAP as I am needing to confirm my buy soon. Thanks!
I'm interested in a integrated look. The car that I want to buy already has the metal/chrome look to the pedals. I was wondering if there are people here in DFW who has the extenders or do custom work.
There is a place in Euless that specializes in Handicapped vehicles.
The lady who owns the place is a long time Miata owner. I'm sure they can come up with something for you that has been tested rather than some one off solution.
Also have you checked with an upholstery shop to see if the drivers seat can be moved forward on the tracks??
I wouldn't move the seat forward any more than you have to. In an accident being right on top of the steering wheel isn't the best place to be. Better to have the pedal extender and be a little bit back from the steering wheel.
If you're addicted to cold turkey how do you stop?
I reject your reality and substitute my own.
Yes. I would rather sit further away from the steering wheel. I normally do in other cars. I would think there are a few custom car shops for sporty cars (kinda like pimp-my-ride who would build custom stuff)
A couple of inches maybe 2-5 inches. I haven't really measured. But, I just have to stretch to push the clutch all the way in with the seat all the way up. I want to stay away from the steering wheel as far as possible.
If no pedal extension...Is there a way to adjust the current pedal to closer ???
Do you only have a problem with the clutch pedal? If so there may be an option to adjust it so you don't have to depress it all the way. Can someone with an NC confirm how far off the floor the clutch engages?

yes mainly the clutch is the problem.
