For anyone who has tracked their car and attempted to heel-toe, im sure you quickly learned that the pedal placement in the 10th gen is less than optimal.


We installed the Acuity pedal spacer on our shop Si, and its a world of difference! Check out how easy the install is, and follow the link to purchase yours today! In stock and ready to ship.

Thanks MAP. How much closer to the driver would you say that the accelerator feels using the "furthest away" option? When seated in my optimal position for operating the clutch, I feel like the brake pedal is a bit too close to me. I'm a little worried that installing this kit will cause the gas pedal to feel too close as well. I was originally going to adjust the brake pedal to be further away, but then the throttle would still be too far over to the side for heel toe-ing. I wish that there was an option that would allow for the pedals to be moved closer together laterally, without moving them closer to the driver.

Interesting gadget. I suppose it could help. I've found in most track situations you end up fighting a fading brake pedal. By raising the throttle you've now made it harder since the brake pedal would be well below throttle level.

I know exactly what you are saying, moving the accelerator pedal removed that feeling for me 100%. I know that can be subjective, but id be confidant that this piece would give you the adjustment needed to get it into a good spot. The farthest away option will do nearly exactly what you are looking for with a slight movement of the pedal towards you. I was a bit skeptical at first, but this piece gave us the adjustment to make the pedals feel good for everyone here that has driven the car and played with it.

Its possible, but with good pads, proper ducting and a good fluid that should not be an issue. The pedal placement stock is so far off of where I would want it, hard for me to see this causing an issue honestly.

I don't have the MT, but the CVT instead. I'm a short guy (5'6") and feel the throttle is too far away when I adjust my seat comfortably away from the steering wheel and brake pedal. Would the Acuity spacer work for me, just to bring the throttle closer to me? Or is it designed for MTs only? (sorry to hi-jack the thread)

I can't imagine that this wouldn't work with the CVT - I believe this will work with all 9th and 10th gens

OK, got my Acuity Pedal Spacer for the 2018 Civic Si Coupe. Super easy install, and I put it on the B setting. I'm trying to replicate the feel of my S2000 as closely as possible. Went for a drive and the B position was not the best, at least for me. Gonna change it to the C position after work tonite and will report back tomorrow. More to come.

Please do! That feedback would be extremely interesting!
Sorry, only posted to another thread. The C position is excellent, at least for me. Now, I’d be 6 foot tall and about 155 lbs with a size 9 shoe, so your results may vary.

In terms of seat adjustment, did you notice that your right knee is closer to steering wheel or is it mostly the same? Im almost 80% about to order one.

I did not notice any difference, but your results may be different. :)

The Acuity part is excellent and a must have, in my view. Note, I heel and toe all the time (street and track)on braking and downshifts. In fact, I plan on transferring it to my new Type R, when it arrives in the spring, even though the Type R has auto rev matching.

Hope this helps!
