Is probably easier to try something like a deep mat to raise your wifes heal instead

You could bend the pedal arm, but then you would only get up to around 3000 rpm ...

Be careful with the rugs or mats. I have the original Linea alfa textile mats and on top of them I use the the rubber mats in winter (also original linea alfa) It happened to me 2 or 3 times that the rubber mat moved few cm forward and when I floored the accelerator it become stuck and wouldn't release because of the mat and the engine was bouncing in the rev limiter. Now I check before every drive that the mat didn't move forward to be sure.
