What does "SPARCO" mean? Not familiar with them. Look good. I'd like them better without the "Sparco" logos.

Sparco makes a bunch of different racing gear: Helmets, suits, seats, steering wheels,harnesses, etc...

It's cool that it says Sparco. Like Momo on a shift knob or Recaro on the seats or steering wheel.

DJ, cool photo! What about the foot-rest. Do they have one for that too?

Niceness. Those stock pedals do look crappy.

Hey DJ-

I really like those compared to a lot of the others out there. What is the model # and $ of those and what site did you order? Have you experienced any slipping? Doesn't look like a lot of rubber on there to contact your feet.

I hope they have a foot rest cover as someone else mentioned.

Price seems right too on the link.

Group buy potential?

Jeff

@djomlas,

How in the world are you missing a chunk of the original clutch pedal cover?!

i have no idea how a chunk is missing,from the PO.
as for slipping, none of that at all, its actually much better than the stock obviously, but has a nice grip.

thx for the compliments, i really like these a lot.
and here is the comparison pics w same lighting, well at least the only one that i have without the pedals installed and only orange underlight on


this is the after
