Default Re: Accelerator Foot Rest Location

That footrest was put there to avoid breaking the torgue tube and/or the rear axle banjo. First gear is low and the car can lurch forward, throwing the driver to the rear where foot comes off the gas pedal, car stops lurching, driver tromps the gas ... ... ... At one point in time the castings were beefed up because of this.
