Well, since it'* a FWD car, I can use all the RWHP I can get!
But, seriously, folks --- ba-da-boomp...
If these are going to be any kind of safety factor in the negative sense, I'll not even take them out of the package...hence the reason for my asking this now.
They're still 'in the box', so I can return them without having tried an installation.
I'll leave this up for a couple of more days to see if there'* more feedback.
If it looks or feels like the pedals won't be a good idea, I'll take 'em back unused.
