Wave Italy Imola GT Style Conversion

It has been a long time since I’ve had a pedal set in a GT configuration. The time was back in 2015 when I did my review on the MPPC GT pedals. And I had forgotten how it feels to be with a set in that configuration. Now with this Imola setup from Wave Italy
I’m back. As some of you may know my current personal go to pedal set is the Italy Impetus you see here. I have been running them for over two years now in the original, Wave Italy calls the “Monza” setup. Which is the only way you could get them at that time. Now they have the Imola option if you buy the Impetus set. I does cost a bit more, but easy to see why with all the brackets that are required. All metal parts in this kit are nicely in a smooth black matt finish. They went together will no drama, and all the fasteners were present. You notice that pedals are close to the bracket sides. I measured the width of the space and it was 345mm, or 13 5/8inches. If you have large feet this may be an issue you. I have a 9 1/2 foot size and was able to navigate the pedal faces with an occasional brush the right side bracket. This with regular sized shoes on. Once I put my driving shoes on I had no issues at all with manipulating pedals cleanly within this space.I forgot how much I liked the GT pedal position. But I think most would like it as it is the setup we drive most cars and trucks with these days. And even more familiar if your car has a stick shift. There certainly is a different feel when pedals mounted in the GT position .vs the standard floor mount position most Sim Racing pedals have these days. I will be keeping my pedals in this configuration. Just feels a bit more natural to me. Of course pedal feel is a very subjective thing and I’m sure there are others who would disagree.
