  • RE fast pedals

    Direct drive/chain drive/belt drive - pedals need to swing just like sticks. Then you just apply impetus or brakes as needed. Axis types or anything similar though - Synth keyboards for instance, require you be able to power thru the initial resistance and then reset under your own power. Can be done obviously; you have reciprocating sets of muscles. Synth keys are of course no fight for good hands and as stated elsewhere, legzes can has ample strong to do metal. I think the major drawback there is no headroom for smooth articulation and transitions as you might encounter playing uh, music?  Hence the continuing popularity of standard action pedals.

    for below 1600 BPM, or above?

    or in MPH, below  325 MPH, or above?


    for above 325 MPH the pedal of the Bentley Continental GT is real good.

      I think exceeding 300 mph takes in excess of 3,000 hp. Not sure how many kilowatts but a ton I'm certain.

      1600 bpm is attainable but unnecessary since metal is slower than low C.
