    Woot! Been waiting for these.

    A huge thank you to VirtualR for posting the news!!

  • FormulaLes

    These pedals are sexy! If I didn’t already own a set of CSTs I would be getting a set of these.

  • Paul Mullins

    Very nice looking pedals and the price is fantastic.

    My only comment would be I’d would prefer some of the sharp angles to be rounded off.. hitting a ankle on that edge would certainly hurt.

    Good luck with the project and business..

      The final CNC’ed product will have those really sharp edges “rounded” off. Just wanted to mention that :)

        Can we get the pedal faces made with dozens of tiny lego pieces? I like to drive bare foot. /s

    How would these compare to Fanatec CS stuff?

    • Ghoults

      The biggest difference is probably that you need to mount these pedals individually to something whereas the fanatecs are a single unit that can be used as is on the floor. I don’t know if the maker of these pedals is planning to offer any mounting plates or heel plates.

      Also the brake pedal on these pedals uses a beam type industrial loadcell while fanatec I think uses smaller type of loadcell that is used in scales.

      Both fanatec cspv2 and these do seem to have a complex clutch mechanism that makes the clutch pedal feel progressive. Fanatecs use hall sensors for gas and clutch while these use potentiometers. Potentiometers do wear out eventually and start spiking but the pots used in these pedals are the good kind (vishay are good I think?).

      As far as reliability goes hall sensors are more reliable than pots but at the same time the loadcell used by fanatec is inferior to the type of loadcell used in these pedals. But both do look like great pedals for their price. I have used fanatec cspv1 pedals for 6 years and only recently my loadcell broke. But the new one costs something like 15€+shipping from fanatec which is about the same as good quality potentiometer or two.

        “I don’t know if the maker of these pedals is planning to offer any mounting plates or heel plates.”

        We are looking into making a stand that you will be able to mount the pedals to. We are not offering one initially because it takes additional development time, and we wanted to get the pedals out there first.

        The plate will have adjustments for sliding the pedals back and forth, and from side to side. We are also looking into offering a heal plate made from “brushed” stainless steel.

        We’ll keep you updated on that :)

        Thanks for the comment!

        Great responses. Thankyou.

        My final question, the CS has an oil damper on the brake pedal. What does this do for feel and will I need it? This also goes for the ABS vibration motor?

        Just trying to make a decision on my next pedals.

      • http://www.protosimtech.com ProtoSimTech

        I’m not sure what you are asking… Are you asking if the damper adds anything on the CS? I have no idea. We don’t use this type of system on our pedals. We use two polyurethane bushings that are 1″ in diameter, and 2-1/2″ long each at a hardness of 60A. We will also include an additional bushing that is the same size and length at a hardness of 80A.

        We also don’t use a vibration motor. Some like it, and some don’t. We chose not to use one because we felt it wasn’t necessary.

        I hope that clears some things up for you. If not, feel free to email me and I can try to answer your questions more thoroughly.

      These have quite a bit of adjustment possibilities to suit your own driving style. The features are listed on our website, but you will get a much better idea of just how many adjustments are possible by watching our upcoming “adjustments” videos.

      These videos will help our future customers by providing all the necessary information regarding adjustments and proper care of your pedals.

      The “Club Sports” are a single unit that you can take out of the box, set down on the floor, and basically go racing. With ours, you’ll certainly be able to do that, but you may not like how the initial setup feels. Therefore, our pedals give you, the user, the ability to setup the pedals to how YOU drive, not how the pedals “force” you to drive.

      One other major difference between ours and the “Club Sports” is that if you don’t like how the clutch mechanism feels, you can remove it, and it will still function just like the throttle pedal, but with a heavier spring.

      We hope that you’ll watch our upcoming videos that should be ready in a couple of weeks. Thank you for the comment!

    I need to find the money. I want these bad.

  • RichardHessels

    That some really nice pedals for a very reasonable price…

  • Mario Strada

    The price, for once, looks reasonable and affordable.

  • Lasse Jakobi Ougaard

    I’m pretty sold. Probably getting a set of these! :)

    @protosimtech:disqus Do you have any idea on shipping costs etc. yet. I’m sure you’ll have atleast a few interested customers outside of the states…

    • http://www.protosimtech.com ProtoSimTech

      We are in the process of building a brand new website. This new website will have a shipping calculator built in. This will help our customers get a better idea how much they will be spending on shipping.

      Once we have all the details, we’ll be sure to update our FAQ’s page accordingly. I hope that helps.

      If you have any further questions, feel free to email me at the address listed on our “Contact Us” page.

      Thanks!
