Does anyone out there use aftermarket pedals in their race (or other) cars? I am looking at Wilwood pedals but the geometry is beyond me. I am hoping that someone has doe it and will share the outcome with me.

I'm in the beginning stages of re-working my Crown V8 and I'm looking at Wilwood's 3-pedal set-up. Once I get the engine back in, sans water pump, I will check steering wheel and pedal placement before I commit to the decision to cut the footwell and move my pedals forward. My gas tank is already relocated to the rear of the car, but I'm concerned about wheelhouse interference.
If you go down this road, please keep us posted.

I have a Lokar gas pedal in my racecar operating a Lokar pull cable for 390 Holley. I was SO HAPPY to be rid of the stock linkage that had trouble pushing secondaries open.
I have stock clutch and brake pedals. The brakes have a box with a bias adjustment cable mounting two Wilwood cylinders. I got it from Jeff Moore but I think it was made by Doug Hargrove.
