Foot position

I test drove an 04 last week and a 05 today and I can't remember if the gto has a spot to the left of the clutch to rest your foot.

Is there a pad on the dead pedal? I have an 06 and there is no such thing in my car. Just a look a like dead pedal with carpet only , no pad, I dont put my foot there because i want to keep the carpet from wearing out

The "dead pedal" is actually a slightly elevated foot rest, not an actual pedal its under the carpet. Unless you are constantly chaffing that area I don't think you'll wear it out, 4 years later and the area on mine is fine.

Yeah there is a raised area with no pad on it. I guess that means I need to add one, while im down there maybe remove my brake pedal arm and do a little bending so I can heel / toe with ease.
