Hi, I am thinking of upgrading the pedals in my 328 GTS with drilled aluminum pedals. Any thoughts or comments? I see there are several available, any recommendations on manufacturer or distributor would be appreciated.
Thanks

ultimate pedals are the best that I've found: http://www.ultimatepedals.com/

Not only can you request customized sets, but options too. like laser engraving, rubber inserts, smooth grooved etc etc.

check it out, prices good.

Great company.

I have them in my 360. The OEM pedals were pathetic and frequently my foot would slip off the clutch!

I put on their beautifully machined surface pedals with rubber inserts and it has been smooth sailing.

Excellent quality and an excellent product.

Very high recommendation.

Hill is another very good suggestion.

All his products are very, very good, and he is very creative as well.

I use as many of the Hill hard parts as is possible.

I have never seen Hill's pedals but know quite a few who have Ultimates.

Thanks for the link to Hill Engineering. I was actually looking for their web site. I read an article somewhere that stated the Hill Aluminum pedals were a "must have" upgrade.

I do not know if the Hill pedals are a "must have" item. They are a very good alternative.

The Ultimate pedals are very advanced and nice.

It's a personal choice.

Hill makes a ton of great products, however.

Oh yes.

I wanted the rubber inderts to prevent foot slippage from the OEM pedals.

Definitely recommend.

+1 on Ultimates Pedals, I brought 3 sets from them, I save on shipping, I just go and pick them up.

PS: As a side note, ultimate pedals will NOT supply you with smooth brake pedal IIRC.. to much slippage, you must get brake either groved or with inserts, but no smoothies.

I guess since I'm a sponsor, I'll chime in. We have the Hill Engineering pedals here:

http://www.ricambiamerica.com/index.php?cPath=600_533

There two full pages of aluminum pedals on our site, and Hill only offers the serrated ones. For a variety of reasons, they feel that is a more effective design when it comes to 'grippy' feel.

If you buy them from Ricambi and just hate 'em, certainly pop them in a box and send them back. No worries, full refund.

Now come one.

Who could not like anything purchased from Ricambi?

BTW did you chime in to pedal Hill's products?

Why no single 10 mm TDC tool?

Thanks for all the input. I will be ordering the Hill Engineeing Pedals from Ricombi but decided I want to replace the shifter ball as well. Is the chrome or anodized shifter ball a better match with the pedals?

Grazie
