Works great and no longer do I have a throbbing right elbow after races.

Ive never hit my elbow there, but Im gonna cover it before I do...
Thanks for the tip....

Re: complete Revolt padding

lol........ no LEDs.... they look like tough
its one of those pedal cover kits that you can but at autozone...
the little circles are where the bolts are running troug...I drilled the pedal and bolted them on directly..... so they wont fall off...

I makes a big difference....
besides making the pedal bigger, it also eliminates possible slip from shoe to metal pedal........ especially when there is mud and dirt involved....

I have them on both pedals....

you can see them better in this picture...

Looks good, I would move the zip tie by your right knee (by the starter button) you would be surprised it can slice you wide open, also I would take the spare key off the key ring and leave it in a safe place (I learned the hard way) good luck at the race.

Re: complete Revolt padding

I agree, Every series I have raced requires the driver to pad all roll bars that you might contact in a crash.. Some require padding only on what your helmet might contact. i did the bars around my head and the Brake Master Cylinder.

Re: complete Revolt padding

I recomend this mod to everyone, even if you dont race....

- the one on the legs is very important because there are bolts sticking out...
- the one under the brake cylinder needs to be covered in case you flip over to prevent hurting your leg....
- the one under the dash board, so you dont hurt your knee...

the trick on the dashborad one is rolling the pad like a burrito and let the lip come out and keep it rolled under the dash for more protection.... then I drilled a whole in the dash and put a zip tie trough it... simple and easy...
