Looking good! Definitely like the setup. I'll assume there enough forward/aft adjustment to comfortably modulate the throttle under braking?

Rob Box FTW!

Nice photobomb!

So you will hopefully get a laugh out of this, but... I'm starting a new design project at work. In my field, we use some kind of theme when we name our projects. My company founder is from Detroit, so he thought a car-based theme would be fun, and I decided we'd go with old musclecar names. We recently changed the plan for the project to go away from a minimalist approach to one that is a bit more, shall I say, "maximalist". So it seemed like a perfect choice to use "Torino" as my first project name in the famliy!

I spend entirely too much time on this site apparently...

Are you going to use the linkage and bellcrank from the picture above? Looks pretty slick, but I'm curious how you will mount it all if so...

Between the brake and throttle pedals there are too many adjustments. It's funny how you take something like pedals for granted until you have to start from ground zero in setting them up.

The Joes pedal is pretty slick. It has adjustable stops in both directions and a garage door spring to snap it back. Of course the carb side of the equation will also get a Joes return spring setup.

He does seem to take issue with it for some reason. Both him and Flash.

Bryan

Yes I am planning on using the bellcrank assembly. I will have a full cage and an underdash bar so the bellcrank will likely mount to a flange on the underdash bar.

We'll you certainly aren't going to be running out of real estate... So mount away there big boy! Ya got enough room in there to run a similar crank and whistles and knobs set up as used by the wizard in The Wizard of OZ...

It's all Torino and 360 some pounds of sideoiler. You either have one or aren't willing to admit you want one.
