Focus ST 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 ST.
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 ST. 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 ST.
Great piece and love the difference! Heel/toe downshifts are so much better! Super easy to install.
You know an aftermarket product is a good fit when it flawlessly integrates itself into a space your very familiar with, and this pedal spacer does just that. Whether you want to better your heal-toe shifts, or are just unhappy with the stock pedal depth (as I was,) this unit solves both problems fast and precisely. Top quality design backed with countless hours of R&D by DMS make this spacer a "no brainier" choice when looking to improve/resolve/enhance the "feel" of any ST or RS controls.. Best Pedal Spacer. Period.
I'll never understand why a manufacturer would sell a car with such poorly positioned pedals. Thankfully this spacer remedies this perfectly. The pedal is now exactly where it should've been all along. Perfectly positioned for heel toe downshifts while remaining comfortable on long drives. The only downside is once it's installed you can't see it, because it's extremely well made and finished.
At first I thought that I had paid to much for it, but it is well worth it, because my rev-matching down shifting is getting much better now. The pedal is closer and will be less comfortable for long straight drives. The installation was simple and easy. I did not even disconnect the harness.
I had another spacer (1.5 inch) for about two years prior to buying this one and it always felt too high. This one is perfect and what you should buy from the start. Spend the extra $20 and get the right one.
