Afternoon all,

The clutch in my THP 200 RCZ functions completely normally, but the pedal lifts a little higher from the ground than I'd like. In my precious Peugeot's there has been a simple adjustment to lower the pedal slightly.

My mechanic has had a quick look and couldn't see anything similar in the Z, does anyone happen to know whether it is possible?

Thanks in advance.

The only thing that bugs me about my Z! Obviously the French have shorter left legs :lol:
After 3 years of ownership I'm just about getting used to it!

Nostalgia alert:
Going back about fifty years, a chap at my car club had a Peerless, which was a hand built GT; one of the early bodies in fibreglass.
Well, under the dash, driver's side was a little wheel, something like you might imagine had come off a traction engine.
It was on the end of a very, very long threaded rod, on which was attached the pedal box.
So having adjusted seat, you wound the little wheel to bring the pedals to the right spot for your feet.
Great, eh? :clap:

That sounds perfect Stewart!

Yes, it's not the end of the world, but definitely would improve the driving experience if it could be brought a little closer to the floor.

It was just a simple adjustment on the 205 GTI / 405 MI16 / 306 GTI6 etc. Must be due to them having a cable clutch setup or something.

I understand it may be that they didnt have that persons permission to take the photo, but to cut their head off is a bit extreme :lol:

More nostalgia:
I am a fan of multi=tubular chassis, and the Peerless one was an excellent example, and you can still get one and build a "new" Peerless. :clap:

http://www.peerless-gt.co.uk/

My Zero has an excellent chassis and far superior to the Chapman original; how do I know? - I had two original Sevens way back in the sixties, one a Clubman's racer, and there seemed to be more flex in the tubes than the suspension! :wtf:
