Thanks for that info.
Gen1 pedal box seems “perfect” to me HOWEVER admittedly a) I long ago drank the Toyobaru Koolaid and b) I don’t have much experience with anything better. Old school (size 10) Converse All Stars (-:, I don’t have a difficult time reaching/blipping the throttle while on brake.

That Hagerty video had me smiling like an idiot. Completely re-sold me on a car I was already sold on

That’s a good point- who thinks the new GR86 will be the modern day S2K?

I remember Toyota specifically apologizing to us at launch because they have corporate rules to keep the gas pedal a certain distance from the brake after the whole "unintended acceleration" fiasco of the 2000s. I never liked the pedal box on these cars, you have to stretch like a MF.
Odd, I have no problem heel-toeing mines, but then again, I've been driving manuals for a while now, so maybe I got used to adapting. I always thought the 86 had the ideal pedal distance (especially when compared to something like the Focus ST).

I think the pedal box impressions are very subjective.

Some people say it's already ideal for heel-toe stock, some NEED a pedal spacer.

I started with a spacer and made things a lot better for me,
but now that I got more experienced I wish I could have a thinner spacer.
Oh well.

Which spacer are you using? I just have a piece of 3/8 uhmw under my pedal. Works with stock hardware.

I’ve never driven an S2K but I’ve had friends who owned on and watched a lot of reviews on it.

If you watch Doug DeMuro’s recent review on the S2000 CR (he praises it) he explains why the S2000 did not sell well toward the end of its life, which resulted in Honda releasing the CR to wring out final sales (much like how Subaru did so with the tS).

Based on what I’ve heard the S2000 was much like the 1st Gen twins where it did not come alive until high RPM’s. I’ve also heard that the 1st Gen Twins have better steering feel than S2000’s whereas the S2000 has better shifter feel and having 9000/8200 rpm redline.

With the 2nd Gen GR86 (and most likely BRZ) it seems to be praised for the engine finally being capable enough for its chassis. The GR86 seems more playful than the S2000, but the S2000 did not have enough low end torque to allow it to be as playful. I believe the S2000 to be more precision-based rather than playful which probably makes it a little bit better driver’s car based on specs.

If anything, the BRZ may have more of an S2000 setup due to it reportedly being more neutral (according to the Japanese comparison drives).

I don't right now but I can take some. I have a ton of scrap UHMW at work so I just snag what I need. I am size 9 shoe and it works perfect for me with the cusco pedal cover. I thought moving the pedal over and out was a bit much like what the spacers on the market do.

With far more restrictive regulations, and keep in mind the S2000 started at $50k in today’s money.

Don’t underplay the achievement that is bringing S2000 level performance in a package that passes 2022 emissions with a 40% price cut.
