hey guys iam a little confused, i just bought some type VR sports pedal pads and am yet to put them on because of something it says on the back of the box...

it says ------- (THESE PEDALS ARE DESIGNED FOR OFF ROAD AND SHOW USE ONLY) ......

does this mean they are not road legal, or is it something they just say....

any help thank ....:confused:

But they do make you stop and go. Kinda important...and if the space is too small and your foot gets caught on the accelerator whilst hitting the brake, then you would be buggered.

And if there isn't enough space between the pedals, it think it will fail the MOT.

thanks guys i think i will risk it and put them on.. there is 50mm gap so it shouldn't fail MOT, and they do have grips so there really should be no difference when using them.. it is just what it says on the box that has made me a little uneasy..... :eek:

Make sure you tell your insurance company, they probably wont charge you anymore but a couple of years back they refused to pay out my sisters friend because he had put some aftermarket pedals on.

Yep...if you want them to pay out if the worse happens...they may not charge you any extra.

For me my halo's didnt cost anything...lowering and alloys did.

To be honest, i dont think they will ask what brand they are, just tell them you have replaced your pedals. . . with alloy ones i presume?

over here at least, the clip on ones are illegal, (the ones with the bedy metal things on them.), you can get some that you need to drill holes in your original pedals and them ones arnt illegal, the reason it becasue of the bendy metal bits catching peoples feet under the pedal and if you need to press the pedal in a hurry, then you get them stuck in your laces., this happened to me but i didnt crash,lol
Also your brake pedal has to have rubber on it to grip on your foot,.,
