Dear Ken,

I have installed the beautifully hand crafted aluminum pedals made by John Skaggs. I will defer to John to send you the details, but I will tell you that I have enjoyed them without reservation. They are a perfect
fit, ultra purposeful and expensive looking, and a truly unique way of personalizing your interior. People always comment on them, and want to know if they are stock, because although they look outrageous, they don't look like "slap-ons."

I have even been challenged on their legality in Street Prepared (SCCA Solo), but they are totally legal for racing in Street Prepared, but I don't think that they are legal in Stock.

Easy to put on, relatively inexpensive, attractive. I would not look any further than John for your pedals. I ordered mine (see below for some details) over the net, sent a check, and they were delivered within a few days. Domzi (Tony Topping) has them, and I know that he would echo my comments, and more (Tony?).

Here is what I have foldered: From:

Subject: competition pedals

Hi Folks:

I have just finished installing a set of the competition pedals which many of you may have seen advertised in the classified section of The Roundel. These are the ones, accompanied by a photograph, on p. 109 of the current issue made
by Speedware Motorsport in Texas.

I can only say that they are absolutely *first class* and gorgeous to behold!!
Made of billet aluminum, they are superbly machined, real works of art. They are priced *very competetively* with the Japanese pedals offered by many of the
tuners and are just infinitely nicer. As compared to the pricing of AC Schnitzer or RD, these pedals offer tremendous savings in price with no compromise in quality.

The size is exactly the same as the stock pedals making toe-and heel-shifting a
breeze. They are simple to attach--30 minutes should do it. (Hint--use a little putty on your hopefully small fingertip to attach the bolts on the accelerator pedal).

John Skaggs, who makes these beauties, has promised that he will make a deadpedal available after the first of the year. He can be reached at 972-722-2886 for those of you who may be interested.

Regards to all,

Well, they sat around for a while but just got John Skaggs' pedals installed. WOW. These are the best I've seen short of Schnitzer! At (price may have changed) or so for the set, a bargain for what you get. Installation was a snap. I highly
recommend them to anyone interested in upgrading the pedals in his/her bimmer. John's email is

Thanks to Tony Topping who first "checked them out."

John is in the process of machining dead pedals as well, can't wait! :)

John sells pedals for the brake, clutch and throttle, and now also offers an absolutely beautiful dead pedal. E mail to him is the best way to make your contact, as he has a real job as well, and would probably appreciate the reserved use of his time. E mail him at:

I have no business connection to John, and paid full retail for his product.
