The couple of the boys up in Oregon (Pilot, Frogger, and Klemdotter) have made some adjustments to their seats and I also believe they made some pedal adjustments too.

Re: Leg room in a revolt,

I made some new pedals to gain lots of room. I am 6'6" and it is very comfortable. It really did not work at all for me with the factory pedals. I did nothing to the seat and have plenty of head and leg room.

I can snap some pics if you want.

OH YES I would love to have the pilot steering wheel with brakes and throttle on the wheel , might be a project soon, I still miss my pilot at times just because of the way honda did the controlls...

Re: Leg room in a revolt,

I don't think you can gain much with the pedals because of the steering box, I did move mine out so I could get my feet between the pedals and gas tank. I could at least stretch a little when we stopped. Getting a flat steering wheel helped me alot.

I moved the pedals towards the outside so they would miss the steering box and made them so they would clear the a-arms by about an inch or so when fully depressed. I rest my brake foot on the steering box and put an angle on the brake pedal so it is a straight shot across to the pedal. On the throttle side, I moved the cable mount point farther from the pedal pivot so the pedal requires less swing to reach full throttle. I also made the cable connection so the eye is free to rotate. From the factory (at least on mine) the cable eye was bolted solid to the pedal which is hard on the cable itself.

I just hacked these together so I could get some seat time to figure out exactly what I wanted to do, and so far they have worked great.

Thanks for the pics and info I took the chopsaw and welder to the gas pedal yesterday , it worked good a little more room and also found out this thing was only gettin about 70% throttle the way redline had it set up , not that this thing is allready a guided missle I got a nice wheelie out of it on the test drive
