Ha. I always forget to turn Rev Matching on and then I downshift without blipping the gas and have a rude awakening. But I love staying in 3rd gear above 3000 RPM's and getting on it!I noticed the pedal spacing was quite wide also. Instead of a subtle roll of the ankle to catch the throttle, I find I really have to pivot my heel out to the gas and give it a nice stab to heel-N-toe it. Still workable and satisfying, just have to work harder for it.
I find if I accidentally leave rev match on, I’m always still manually blipping the throttle by muscle reflex. Habit I guess.
Solution; :grin:https://www.ebay.com/itm/Throttle-Pedal-Relocate-Spacer-for-Hyundai-Veloster-N-i30n/153646957104?hash=item23c6128230:g:JDgAAOSwKTddY6Q-i'm just shocked that the R&T journo actually admitted that the heel-toe spacing is wide! literally every other review (including an older R&T article) says that pedal spacing is really good for heel-toe. but i love my VN regardless.
I assume you're super happy with it? The documentation for it on eBay/Amazon is really crappy - the thing says there are two mounting positions? I can't see how that would work unless you just turn the gas pedal assembly and only bolt to two of the holes. Gas pedal spacers I've seen for other cars use long slots for adjustability.
Yes, I have to agree with you. I love my VN, it is a fantastic car for the money.I love this car as much as anybody, but does anyone REALLY believe the PCOTY? Editor's Choice - yes ... best FWD - yes ... best bang for the buck - yes ... best everyman's toy - yes. But c'mon, if money was no issue, would anyone pick our beloved? I've driven some of these cars, I've had several 911's and a Boxter S, and it's just not in the same class ... I'm not sure it's even in the same school. I'll give you a case in point; I can spin the N's tires at just about anytime in 1, 2 and maybe 3, I rarely spun the tires on my Carrera 4S or Turbo. But I will say this, I never saw anyone look at the Porches or take pictures ... but they have on the N!
The N's driving experience is far, far superior to the RC F, IMHO. I can't speak to the LC.If money were no object, I'd take a hard look at a Lexus RC or LC. The LC500 looks really sweet. But I haven't test-driven them.
The only "lowly" thing IMO about my Hyundai is the hard plastic interior. Yet I still think the interior makes a positive first impression, especially when you get in the driver's seat.
