A driver has four main inputs for driving a car. Three of these are found in the foot well in the form of the pedals. When building a competition car, it is often considered to be advantageous to upgrade the braking system.
Pedal boxes are available in a range of different configurations covering single pedals through to all three and feature either top mounted or floor mounted options. This way, there will be a pedal box to suit both the physical limitations of the foot well along with the requirements of the driver.
A good pedal box offers a range of adjustment possibilities which would not ordinarily be available on standard pedals including pedal position, pedal throw and pedal ratio to name a few. Another advantage of installing a motorsport pedal box is the option to install your choice of brake master cylinders which has a significant effect on pedal pressure and feel. All of this serves to help the driver have the confidence required on the pedals to be consistent, accurate and, of course, quick.
