Focus RS Accelerator Pedal Spacer
The Damond Motorsports Accelerator Pedal Spacer is designed to offer optimal pedal placement for heel and toe rev-matching on both the street and the race track for the Focus RS.
We started this process by taking measurements on sports cars with more ideal pedal placement for heel and toe re-matching vs the standard Focus placement. From these measurements we developed a spacer to mimic a more ideal pedal placement onto the Focus RS. The Damond Motorsports Accelerator Pedal Spacer is 0.75" thick, and moves in slightly towards the brake pedal and slightly lowers the accelerator pedal. The move closer to the brake pedal helps with rev-matching using the top of your foot during daily driving, while slightly lowering the pedal allows for full heel and toe action under hard braking at the track.
Whether you heel and toe rev match with just the top of your foot, or the actual heel and toe method, you'll find the Damond Motorsports Accelerator Pedal Spacer to be an excellent addition to your Focus RS.
This is by no means a difficult install and the fitment was perfect along with the supplied hardware. The pedal is where I would say 'almost perfect', but that is only if you're normal driving and heel/toe shifting. When you're actually pushing it and are getting deeper into the brake pedal, it's right where it should be (given you don't have any air in your lines). A bit pricey for what it is, but well worth it if you want a solid product you don't need to worry about after it's installed.
My install could have gone better. FoMoCo had done a great job securing the OE bolts and nuts by pinching it.
But it's a challneges to remove and reinstall it.
Press out the OE Bolts and used a flanged 20mm screw.
Great relocation for the gas pedal as well as the actual product.
A must have
This pedal spacer is the perfect size for the Focus RS. I had tried another brand of spacer before the Damond, and it was still too short. The Damond puts the pedal in a perfect location to execute heal/toe shifts. Very happy!
The install of the pedal spacer is very straightforward. Unless you have absolutely zero mechanical skill, you can install this part with ease.
The pedal placement is perfect. I was able to heel toe downshift without it, but I wasn't 100% successful. With the pedal spacer, I can now easily heel toe without a second thought, and my blips and downshifts are now extremely consistent.
I would recommend this part for anyone that cars about heel toe downshifting in a Focus RS.
I wish I made this change sooner. Simple install. Quick shipping. Makes street driving and aggressive street driving much smoother. Despite size 12 shoes, it was really awkward to heel-toe smoothly with the stock set up. This spacer eliminates all the awkwardness from the stock pedal spacing. Nothing more to say really.
