Sneak preview of an awesome clutch component we are currently testing

…a must for all modern “Sporty-Driven” (manual) BMWs.


The “Ultimate Clutch Pedal” is a short-throw clutch pedal made of billet aluminum and 6061 aluminum tube.

It fits all LHD manual BMW 3-series cars 2007 and up. Includes (E90/92 and up including F-models) along with all manual 1-series cars and X1 chassis.

“Slop” is completely eliminated by the use of precision maintenance-free bronze bushings and stiff billet CNC-design pivot block.

Feel is greatly increased due to the elimination of all plastic and flex in the pedal system.

The slightly shorter throw makes for quicker shifting and a more positive feel.

Lower pedal resting location (15mm lower) lines up pedal better when braking and requires less “leg-lift” from the dead-pedal.

The over-center spring is user adjustable with 3 settings (Stock - Sport - Race).

Includes adjustable clutch stop that allows user to fine-tune the pedal travel distance and carpet clearance.

Satin tumbled surface is then finished in anodized black.

Pedal pad shape is compatible with OEM rubber or any after-market pedal pad kit.

Easy end-user installation requires no alterations to the car and no special tools.

Race-proven performance – positive feedback… Tested by amateur and professional racers.

Why do you think you need this pedal?

Just like to hear it directly from the end-users.

Travel is way too long and vague, and without direct feedback. Esp more pronounced with an SSK lever

Are you testing it with stock CDV or CDV delete mod? Would it work equally in both cases or better with one of these set ups?

Is this the Mason Engineering unit or a unique one altogether?

This pedal will solve all the issues you just mentioned and add a few more benefits.

CDV delete.

This Ultimate Pedal does not solve the delay issue built into the OE delay valve so a modified one is still recommended.

No, this is an Ultimate Clutch Pedal product. Engineered by a BMWCCA Club Racer and currently being tested by other racers, BMW enthusiasts and us.

I started paying a whole lot more attention to the way the stock clutch pedal operates

There is room for progress there, even with a modified CDV in place, no doubts whatsoever.

Harold, so how close are we to assesment of these tests and getting in the production, any preliminary date of release? Hope you just didn't tease us badly for something too far away!

This pedal has been in testing(BMWCCA Club Racing levels) for a long time with many revisions. The productions models were recently installed on street cars, including my 1M. I personally did the install so I know every detail of the the product down to its installation process.

Production has already started. We are looking at shipping date of Oct. 15 or there about. First pay first ship.

When will we have it in the online store?

How easy is the install by the way?

Seems LHD vs RHD are different part numbers. Harold, assuming this won't work for RHD?

Correct, as far as I know, it's currently for the LHD only.

After a few of these hit the endusers we will hear feed backs for sure! Right now most of the testers are racers, track guys and BMW enthusiasts that don't seem to post here.
