If you are going to add weight you might as well make it do a few things for you. Here is my combo dead peal, pedal box/chassis stiffener, and foot insurance policy. Pardon the dust, the clear coat shows everything.

It looks like if you had run that diagonal from the top at the front you wouldn't have had to add anything. Your dead pedal would have been part of the frame.

That makes sense. All of my autocrossing has been in regular production cars with standard belts, so having the dead pedal was more important.

Thanks for educating me everyone. :wink:
