Heusinkveld Ultimate Baseplate
With our range of Sim Pedals being able to cope with the forces as experienced in real life racing cars, a sturdy mount to your simulator rig is an absolute must. If you do not want mount the pedals directly to your rig but want to put them on a baseplate first, we offer an optional rigid mounting solution. These baseplates are designed to show absolutely zero flex under load, while maintaining flexibility when it comes to positioning individual pedals.
With the brake of the Pro Pedals being able to cope with 55kg of force, and the brake of the Ultimate Pedals 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 pedals.
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 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 each other. 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 Baseplate is suitable for both our Sim Pedals Pro and Sim Pedals Ultimate using one generic design (the Sim Pedals Racecenter are not supported). If you decide to upgrade from our Pro pedals to our Ultimate pedals, you will be able to use the same baseplate.
