This elastomer kit allows you to upgrade your Sim Pedals Sprint brake pedal to our latest injection molded thermoset elastomers.
Brake pedal feel is critical to your simulator experience. Continued development has resulted in these new thermoset brake elastomers, which were first introduced on our Sim Pedals Ultimate+. You now have the option to replace the previous specification brake rubbers on your Sim Pedals Sprint with these new thermoset elastomers.
Please note that these new elastomers may already be installed in your Sim Pedals Sprint. This is likely to be the case if you purchased your Sim Pedals Sprint as of January 2022.
If your rubbers/elastomers have markings on the top indicating length and strength ("soft" or "hard"), you already have the new specification installed. If there are no markings, you have the old specification to be upgraded.
The main advantages of using these new elastomers compared to the previous specification rubbers are as follows:
- A much more progressive braking feel. When applying force to the brake initially there will be more travel. Then, the brake pedal feel will gradually but very distinctly stiffen.
- Firmer rebound and stroke characteristics. Especially in rebound (i.e. when you decrease the force you exert on the brake), a smaller decrease in braking force is required for the pedal to start moving back to its initial position.
- Increased durability. Extensive testing has shown that these new elastomers have a near-zero failure rate and show no performance degradation even after 1 million cycles.
We would like to point out that this is an optional upgrade. The previous specification brake rubbers will also serve you very well for many years, albeit with slightly different performance characteristics.
What is included?
The Sim Pedals Sprint elastomer kit contains the following components:
- 1x 19 mm hard elastomer.
- 1x soft elastomer 19 mm.
- 1x soft elastomer of 28 mm.
- 1x soft elastomer 37 mm.
The length and hardness of the elastomer (soft/hard) are printed on the side of the elastomers.
All other components of the rubber brake stack (such as the black discs and spacers) should be reused from your original Sim Pedals Sprint brakes.
The diagram below shows all possible configurations. The hardest configuration is at the top and the softest at the bottom.
With this kit you can adjust a total of 6 force curves. All possible curves can be seen in the graph below. The hardest setting is on the left and the softest on the right.
This elastomer kit is compatible with all versions of Sim Pedals Sprint and Sim Pedals Sprint - Team Redline Edition.
Before purchasing the elastomer kit, please check to see if you already have the new elastomers. If your rubbers/elastomers have markings on the side indicating length and strength ("soft" or "hard"), you already have the new specification installed. If there are no markings, you have the old specification rubbers.
The elastomer kit is not compatible with the following products:
- Sim Pedals Ultimate (not "plus" version): The inside diameter of these elastomers does not match the diameter of the brake rod on the classic Sim Pedals Ultimate. This kit also does not include the required black discs and spacers, damage to the elastomer will occur if the original metal discs are used. If you would like to upgrade your classic Sim Pedals Ultimate, please see the Sim Pedals Ultimate upgrade kit.
- Sim Pedals Pro: This kit is not designed to be compatible with Sim Pedals Pro. The hardware required to install the elastomer kit is supplied with the Sim Pedals Sprint only.
For more information on brake pedal elastomer settings, how to change the stiffness of your brake pedal and use our SmartControl software (recalibration of the brake pedal is required after installing the elastomer upgrade kit), please refer to the latest version of the Sim Pedals Sprint manual.
