Is there one out there? Like 5/8" - 1"?

All I can find is 37 & 38mm (1.5")

I'd rather metal and not plastic, but does anyone have a 3D design I could use and bring to a Maker Shop?

Thanks all

I messaged a company how makes them and got this response when asking for a 1" spacer, could anyone explain why a 1" spacer is not possible but a 1.5" is??

"While it's possible to make one at 1" height, the matching hardware is 1.5". At 1" height, there is not enough thread engagement for the car's mounting stud from the bottom and screw from the top."

The kit from active shift designs is 3-D printed and it comes with the retainer nut and bolt if you wanted to you could just cut the half inch off of it cut the nut & bolt down a half inch. There you go 1 inch set up

I contacted a company that prints 3D stuff and they told me that PLA is stronger than ABS and they would recommend me to print the pedal spacer with it. As far as I know ABS is stronger than PLA but I guess they know more about it. Does someone have knowledge on this?

I ended up buying a 3/8" spacer made for the RS, but I believe fits the ST sold by
https://yourlittlecncshop.com

I honestly wish I could've gotten 3/4" or so, but the reviews on the RS forum were good so I gave it a shot, I really didn't want to go all the way to 1.5" and this was cheap compared to the rest of the market

Any reason you can't buy two and stack them to get the height you want (if you get longer hardware that would work)? 3/8" + 3/8" = 3/4"

I thought about that, it's a possibility, I just don't know of any fitment issues with stacking. I will give the 1 a shot and if I still want more I'll buy another
