My 69 Camaro has the clutch and brake pedals the same distance from the floor board. I've noticed some first gens have a brake pedal that is closer to the floor, kinda half-way between the clutch and the gas pedal. Is there some sort of adjustment I can make to achieve that? The benefit is that it would take less time to move my right foot off the gas and on to the brake.

I've got manual brakes, so I guess that's it. Not that I'm a road and track ace or anything, but if the pedals in the car I'm driving allow it I like to practice my heal and toe technique to match revs, and it needs lots of practice. The Camaro's pedal placement make it tough. Thanks!

use a line lock, we put one on our haul truck dualley, hold the button, let go when you
want to. No it will not do the heel and toe, shift in a turn, works great at a stop on a
hill,

I adjusted the rod on my manual brake car down and made a longer brake pedal bump stop to make up for the loss in rod length. It lowered my pedal a little more than 1 inch and the brakes work perfect!

I think a line lock solves a different requirement. Like John says, good at stops for big smokey burnouts, or as a hill-holder, but *not* for heel and toe'n your Dually! :) I'll look into the adjustments Doug mentions to get more of what I'm looking for. Thanks!

Barry. I was getting tired of hitting my leg on the steering wheel every time i went from the gas pedal to the brake pedal. Something had to be done. If you need any pointers when you go to do it, just send me a pm.
