This is the best pic I have of my pedals.

They're not stock, right?

Anyway.... does anybody else have problems with them being very slippery. If I get even a little water on my sneakers, and if I'm in a hurry and mash the clutch, my foot glides right off to the left. Is there anything I can do to make it more grippy or anything that you guys did that might help? Thanks

you could ruff up the black (rubber?) parts with some sand paper :dunno

or get some skateboard grip tape and cover the black pieces with it, i think that might be too grippy though.


and those are a ford pedal, IIRC they came in the bullitts, it guess it is possible that your car came with them. Maybe they were part of the IUP

Ya I was thinkin of cutting little circles out of the stuff people put on outdoor steps thats kinda like black sandpaper, but I dont think it would stick too good to the rubber on the pedals.

Does anybody have any other kind of pedals that look just as good but "work" better for their purpose?

Ummm I never really paid much attention, but i think it might be slightly higher. The gas is way in the back though compared to the others

Alright let me know how you make out. I'd still like to hear some opinions from other people too though...
try talking some sand paper and roughing up the rubber pads

those pedals come with bullits and where later introduced in the Iup package, i love mine, though they are slippery, however, if i can keep my feet on my stage 3.2 clutch im sure that anyone can handle the slipperiness of them lol.
i find wearing my chucks though help some, because it feels as if my foot wraps around the pedal in those shoes.

god when that post was made i was still driving my gt with the stock pedals and loving it. since then i bought a cobra just to find out that they come with the same pedals as the bullit, crap!. just be careful when driving with wet feet. i wipe my feet on the floor mat untill they are dry enough to stick to the pedal again. floor mats are cheap compaired to replacing stuff your run into when you slip off the clutch. i wish i had a pic of when i ran into the inside of my garage because of the "cool pedals"

Haha...The day I bought my car it was pouring down rain + I wasnt used to the stage 3 clutch nor was I used to the power level of this car:no...needless to say it was a BITCH to drive it home with wet feet. I hate the damn pedals. They look great, but Ive slipped off of the clutch a time or two...

Makes me glad I have a crappy ass salvaged one that doesn't even have a cover on it. Pretty sure my car was an auto originally.

Someone should make a gel style band that wraps around the edges, something similar to the iPod protective covers. That way your foot can slip on the rubber, but if it gets close to the edge, it sticks on the gel, while maintaining most of the original look.

Or just dig out a V6/GT pedal.

Or get some good driving shoes. I find my Puma's are great, and believe it or not work boots due to their non-slip sole.

Must just be mine. Normally I hate them, but believe it or not they grip well, and I actually prefer them on my 10hr drives for comfort. Personal taste I guess.

I have the same pedals. It embarrassing when at a stop light and it goes green and your foot slips off the clutch and the car dies.
