The brake pedal and clutch are on a plate with quick releases so I can slide them both to the left when I'm using paddle shifters.. . . . and where's the third shoe for the dead pedal?
Speaking of dead pedals and clutches, is your rig setup for both clutch and clutch-less operation? So you could shift "old school" H pattern with clutch needed for every shift, or sequential with clutch only needed to get going.
I mostly row gears in Rally. I love the old Rally B cars! Lancia Stratos, Audi Quattro, etc..
In this picture you can see my Quaife 6 speed gear box, a hand brake, a sequential shifter lever and paddle shifters behind the wheel.
I decide what I want to use depending on the car I'm in.
There is even a tactile "grinding gears" effect if you didn't shift well. In the MX-5 if you just pop the clutch the seat mover will buck you a bit.
Right now the clutch pedal and shifter are not truly linked. I'm on the pre-order list for a hydraulic lockout that will be mapped to the clutch pedal and not allow you to change gears until you have the clutch depressed.
