October 2018- I was at New Jersey Motorsports Park with my ‘86 911 and saw a fully built 70’s 911 with an original Wings pedal. I had seen them before on the forums but never in person. I got to wondering what ever happened to this brand that, by all accounts, had a great solution for the brake/gas distance issue in old 911’s. I decided I would try to do some digging and see what the story was and if there was a way I could bring the brand back.
With some investigative work and a few phone calls I was able to track down Wayne, the man originally behind the third foot™. We met and I explained my passion to revive the brand. He was in his late eighties, very much retired and gave me his blessing to bring it back.

Around the same time I noticed the brand of pads my local Porsche specialist recommended and sold was scarcely available online. Most of the guys I knew with air-cooled cars ran KFP Magnums and I thought a tried and true street/track and track brake pad option would be another great product to offer alongside the third foot.
