We are building a new car for this year, a '82 Monte Carlo. We want to set the cage back and were told that if we did the best way to do the pedals was to hang them from a dash area cross bar that is part of the roll cage. Does anyone have any pictures on how they did this? Also to get the brakes situated for the set back we should lengthen the m/c push rod, has anyone done this?
Thanks,

We got the floor mount type,seemed alot more simpler.poped a ho;e in the floor board for hooking up the OEM brake lines.The only thing I'm concerned about is rules claim no brake blocking and the petal has the block for adjusting front and back brakes.We set it even betwwen front and rear and tuck it up under the dash.

Well the cage is going back and the drivers legs won't reach and we're not using any block on the pedals or pedal extensions. We're hanging pedals no matter what, I'm just looking for some other folks setups.

Thanks for the reply.

i like hanging way way better for feel and bleeding, the leverage is completely different, ive driven several floor mount cars and dont like the feel of the brakes at all...

i bought a plate that speedway sells to mount a brake clutch hanging combo, this made it really easy i just bolt pedals and mc on and hook it up, then use some scrap metal and tack weld it in till i like its location.

i like a level floor so i add a flat piece over the stock floor pan and go up from there.
