The horizontal position of each pedal on the heel rest is individually adjustable, and they can even be separately mounted onto your customized cockpit without the heel rest plate, allowing you to recreate a realistic F1-style driving position.

Optional loadcell kit
Upgrade to the optional loadcell brake pedal unit for an even more realistic braking feel, thanks to a load cell that can handle up to 90 kg of pedal pressure.
