One of the consequences of designing a car is often not knowing dimensions of components without first having them in-hand. Other times it’s guessing about what will fit where and placing orders before all the details are known – that doesn’t work sometimes. Such was the case with the floor-mount Tilton pedal assembly. With perfect hindsight, there is indeed room for an overhung top-pivot design, which fits better, is more ergonomical, and costs much less. The good thing is that it makes the overall project that much less expensive to build and fits together a bit better. Hard to argue with that, just wish I hadn’t been so quick to order the wrong part but so it goes.
