If you own the classic Sim Pedals Ultimate which has RJ-plugs to connect the pedals to the controller (sold between mid-2014 to 2021), you can use this upgrade kit.
If you own the classic Sim Pedals Ultimate which has wire terminals on the controller (sold between late 2013 – early 2014), you must crimp RJ9 plugs (crimp tool and plugs not included in the Upgrade Kit) to the pedal wires before you can use the SmartControl controller. Contact email@example.com for further guidance.
If you own the Sim Pedals Ultimate+ (sold from July 2021 onwards), do not buy this Upgrade Kit. Your pedals already have all parts included in this Upgrade Kit.
The Upgrade Kit is not compatible with other pedal series such as Sim Pedals Pro, Sim Pedals Sprint or Sim Pedals Racecenter.
Within the Upgrade Kit, the new controller box and part of the rubber stack assembly are pre-assembled. You must still install/integrate these assemblies into your current Sim Pedals Ultimate pedal set.
All other components come as individual parts. You have to do the installation of the new parts into the existing pedals yourself. This will take approximately 30 minutes. Tools to perform the installation are included in the Upgrade Kit.
For further information on brake pedal rubber stack settings, electronics and software you can use the manual for Sim Pedals Ultimate+ instead of the classic Sim Pedals Ultimate manual.
