With the Sim Pedals Ultimate being able to cope with up to 136kg of force, standard rigs often show excessive flex under these loads. This baseplate helps to create a rigid mounting platform for your Sim Pedals Ultimate (please note that the Sim Pedals Sprint have their own baseplate).
The baseplate assembly consists of multiple elements: The main baseplate on which you mount the pedals, as well as two brackets which create ground clearance for the pedal bolts and nuts and provide mounting space for the pedal controller. The main baseplate element is 10mm thick and will show zero flex under maximum load.
Depending on your rig, you have the option to use the straigth/parallel brackets or angled brackets. Both bracket types are supplied with every baseplate. The angled brackets are specifically designed for rigs which come with a proprietary pedal mounting plate which is inclined towards the seat.
Our angled brackets tilt the Sim Pedals Ultimate Baseplate by 15 degrees. This offsets the default plate inclination from your rig creating a horizontal mounting platform for your Sim Pedals. If your rig has an angled pedal deck, this will also elevate the position of the pedals, enhancing ergonomics and resulting in a more realistic driving position where the pedal box and seat are at a more level position relative to eachother. The images show both types of brackets, as well as a schematic showing various seating positions and the appropriate bracket type.
Both sets of brackets are compatible with G25/G27 mounting holes, allowing for easy installation on many available simulator rigs. Alternatively, the brackets can also be mounted to the side of the baseplate in a wider layout.
Every baseplate comes with a set of bolts and nuts to attach the pedals to the baseplate and mount the baseplate to your rig. Next to mounting holes for your pedals, every baseplate also features slots to position the Sim Pedals USB-controller.
The Sim Pedals Ultimate Baseplate is suitable for our Sim Pedals Ultimate. It can also be used for the (no longer produced) Sim Pedals Pro.
The Sim Pedals Ultimate Baseplate is NOT compatible with the Sim Pedals Sprint or Sim Pedals Racecentre. For the Sim Pedals Sprint baseplate, please click here.
