Hey guys! Got an interesting new product for you all. For those who road race you know that this is a common problem on this car, but the brake and gas pedal aren't in line with each other, which can make heal toe downshifting a bit difficult (for the old school guys who still heal toe like me). There is a big ergonomic problem that causes an awkward driving position when needing to heal toe since the accelerator pedal is more sunken into the car than the brake pedal which sits more forward (towards the driver). By adding this Active Shift Designs lift spacer, you actually push the gas pedal closer to the driver to be more inline with the brake pedal to make heal toe down shifting easier. Other pedal spacers on the market are usually made from billet, and extend the pedal out just a little bit more, but most of them fall short, or are too expensive. These are 3D printed high-strength resin which provides an even and level mounting surface for your accelerator pedal to mount against.



These features coupler nuts precisely the right length that thread onto the OEM accel pedal mounting studs and new hardware to safely and securely mount your accelerator pedal. Available in Red, Blue and Black to match your ST, and each spacer features an embossed "ST" logo.





Active Shift Designs Accelerator Pedal Lift Spacer for 2013+ Ford Focus ST & Fiesta ST

Just installed this last night.

10 mil socket + extension, 20 minutes, and done.

Initial impressions: Much, much more intuitive feel to the pedals! I'll have to spend some time un-learning that big hop between accelerator and brake, and will be doing so wearing a big grin the whole time :cool2:

Thank you for a simple, well made product, and the excellent communication from your staff.

You've earned a loyal customer!

Sincerely,

Chuck

Installed this black pedal spacer in front of my apartment with a headlamp, 10mm wrench and extension. Definite awesome change in throttle modulation/cockpit feel, I no longer have to "reach" for the accelerator at all and can blip with the heel if necessary :)

Thanks for a great product and nice meeting you Jurrian!

This looks awesome and I really want to order one, but my car is in the process of being shipped, so I'll have to wait a couple months :sad: But this is now on my list of parts to order as soon as I get it back!

I just received and installed mine today. Got here quick and installed in about 20 minutes (would have been less if my garage floor wasn't so filthy I didn't want my pants to touch it...). I haven't had the chance to drive the car much, but just moving it forwards, the pedal seems to be in a much better spot. Well worth the money.

I'll post a full review tomorrow once I get to drive the car a bit.

Just ordered mine too! @rockstarperformance how are you liking your so far?
Loving it. The pedal spacing is so much more intuitive now, and while I haven't taken a particularly long trip yet, I think it will be a much more comfortable as far as the driving position. Just a tip though, have a better flashlight available than the one on your phone... Mine would not stay put, like, ever.

The pedal spacer arrived today, and I decided to modify it before I install it. This side came out kind of sloppy, but, it's the side facing the passenger side. I'll try and do better on the other side. And even if I don't, it's under the dash, and you have to get right up on it to see I didn't do the cleanest of jobs.

Just got restocked late last week as well! Popular option so far has been black so we have a ton of those, a few red and a few blue still in stock too!

Installed last night, took first drive today. It's amazing. Completely different feel. I've only had my car for about a month, so I figured it wouldn't take me that long to adjust, but I noticed the difference immediately. Honestly, this is how the car should have been setup from the factory.

If you don't already have one, get one. Do it! Do it now! Inexpensive, and so easy to install, even a toddler can do it. Actually, a toddler would be able to fit under the dash better, so they'd have an easier time installing it. If you've got a toddler, let them install it for you. If you don't have a toddler, borrow one (with permission please). If you can't borrow one, then you'll just have to do it yourself, but don't worry, it really isn't hard.

Tried googling but didn't find much. Is this compatible with 2015s? Just picked up my ST last night and being unable to comfortably heel toe is extremely annoying and I've only driven the car 35 miles haha.
