Brake pedal material requirments

Post by bzrse7en » Sun Nov 06, 2011 8:16 pm

Hi Lads
In their floor mounted brake pedals, Lotus use a piece of tube as the main arm. Is there a material specification for tubular pedals?

Thanks very much
Patrick

Ah no you will have to apply to the lvvta for such a thing 8mm mild steel is the rule though in 7 type cars where the pedal length is unusually short and aluminium has to be %$150- %200 thicker than if you used steel
