You can't wear heels in a race car:
But that doesn't mean you shouldn't be able to heel-toe in one. Anyone that has take a 10th Gen Civic to the track can tell you that the default pedal positions make using a heel-toe technique incredibly difficult, if not impossible. The solution? Move the throttle pedal toward the driver, better aligning the brake and accelerator pedals. The ACUITY Throttle Pedal Spacer (or more technically, Accelerator Pedal Relocation Bracket), helps resolve this problem by providing three unique new positions for your accelerator pedal. In addition to moving the pedal toward the driver, the ACUITY Throttle Pedal Spacer allows you to move the pedals closer together, laterally, to aid drivers with narrow feet.
The ACUITY Throttle Pedal Spacer allows the driver to select one of 3 possible non-stock pedal locations. Each location provides a slightly different driving feel. We recommend trying them all to find what suits you best. Below is a brief description of each position.
- Position A moves the throttle pedal closest to the driver
- Position B is slightly further from the driver than Position A and slightly closer to the brake pedal, laterally
- Position C is furthest from the driver (still much closer than stock) and also moves the accelerator pedal closer to the brake pedal, laterally, like Position B

2 weeks ago I installed the Acuity Instruments throttle spacer plate on my '17 Honda Civic touring sedan, and let me tell you, this thing makes driving a hell of a lot better than the stock gas pedal! Now that the gas pedal is even with the brake pedal, height-wise, all you have to do is pivot your heel to get to either the brake or gas pedals! Thank you Acuity for making such an awesome product!
This is a great product. I wanted to replicate, as closely as possible, the heel and toe action of my 2002 Honda S2000. The 'C' position on the ACUITY Throttle Pedal Spacer fits the bill very well. I'm 6 feet tall and weigh 155 lbs with size 9 feet. My preferred shoes for driving on the street and the track are a flat soled shoe, like Vans. Your preferred setting on the ACUITY Throttle Pedal Spacer may be different than mine.
I have a 2018 Si and I ended up with option c. It makes the car much more comfortable to drive as well as being perfect for heel toe. I highly suggest this part!
Title says it in a nut shell. I can't just leave a review about the pedal spacer without also mentioning the other products. Not only is this an outstanding product which does what it says, when used in conjunction with the other improvements (short shift adapter, rocker arm, and centering spring) the driving experience in completely different. Mainly because you can down shift quickly which the product is designed to do. Obviously the two are connected so it's organically the next thing to improve. All I can say is don't just get the pedal spacer, get the rest. It's worth it. Because I was a novice I ordered the parts sequentially which in hindsight was a waste of money for shipping. If you're reading this just get them all and pay for shipping once. I guarantee once you improve one part you'll want the rest and these products are the absolutely best. Can't wait for the 10th gen full short shifter. Thanks Acuity
After getting my shifter sorted out with every available piece from Acuity, the pedal spacer was a much welcomed upgrade. The ability to heel toe is now available, and installation was as simple as 6 bolts and a plug, but the usefulness makes it seem like something so much more complicated! Another 5 star part from Acuity.
