Want your simulator to come in a bass boat metal flake? You got it. Just sign here.
SimCraft takes a standard floor-mounted Tilton pedal assembly and then modifies it artfully for use in sim racing.
You can see a small potentiometer to measure the throttle position, and then a large load cell assembly to measure brake pedal pressure. You may have seen some very high-end sim racing brake pedal setups that use actual car hydraulics. SimCraft doesn’t do this. Why?
Zero companies make hydraulic setups where they guarantee a lifetime of leak-free operation. When there’s a $125,000 simulator sitting in some person’s sim racing cave, and it’s leaking hydraulic fluid all over the floor, angry phone calls commence. And it’s not like SimCraft will or can come to clean up the mess quickly.
So, they’ve designed a supermodular captured spring braking setup that feels pretty darned close to the real thing.
SimCraft includes both a 2″ and 3.5″ brake cylinder, plus extra, lighter springs to experiment with for your ideal brake setup. There is a rubber insert that goes in the center of the spring, which they can also supply in various durometers and lengths. In the end, what you get is a highly customizable brake pedal that can be adjusted to achieve the feel that you desire, with no messy cleanup or leaks. And if you don’t like the stuff that comes in the box, they use standard-sized springs, and you can simply go out into the market and purchase your own.
