    Well, you are probably right. It's just that the partss you show are mostly meant to absorb vibrations... But ok it could do the job !

    Hello, just wondering how the new pedals are doing? Mention a little while ago that you were completely redesigning both pedals.

    I am mostly making these pedals a bit more fancy. But I won't release a new version soon. I am waiting for feedback from users to improve them :)

    Beside of this, I am working on my other projets. I will release my paddle shifters tomorrow :)

    That's great to hear, I did want to make them look a little more fancy, I still need a rig to place them on but the second I do I'm definitely printing this off.

    What kind of shifters are these? I'm guessing your using magnetic shifter for a better feel

    Do any people still prefer metal pedals ?

    Wow that pedal looks amazing! Really nicely done. I'll definitely print this once I've fixed my printer

    Hi !
    I will now add a completly new accelerator model :
    [​IMG]

    It's a more common design, based on a compression spring (instead of a torsion spring). It will be immediately adapted into a clutch pedal. It will be a bit more expensive due to the add of 3 bearings.
    To make things clearer, the old pedal model (with torsion spring) will be named " GT" (I am still working on it). The brake pedal and new accelerator pedal will be named "P1" (because you are sure to be the first with this pedals, isn't it ?).

    I also launched my website where I will put all the tutorials :

    you have an almost perfect hydraulic system mounted. I say almost perfect because you would only need to emulate the ABS by pulsations and no. the typical motor vibrates behind the brake pedal

    the truth is that I like more that it has the soft part. then it gets tough at the end of the ride. I have always driven cars.

    Please take "brake_v5.7_MC__support_Heavy_Duty_M6" or "brake_v5.7_MC__support_Heavy_Duty_wood". The two other ones will be discontinued.

    "M6 "if you will use M6 screws to fix the pedal to your rig.
    "Wood" if you will use wood screws to fix the pedal to your rig.

    New version = new thingiverse page.
    But I always put a link to the newer version on the older page.

    The second one. I just removed the first one, it's not needed anymore. It's just there to help you to drill your support if you need so !

    I already have all the necessary files to print the SRT P1 hydraulic brake pedal, but now the p1 accelerator is missing because I see that the one you have is the GT.

    Or can I use the brake p1 together with the gt throttle?

    Print pedal_foot_plate.stl, then you can add spacers to place the plate further.

    P1 accelerator pedal will be released in a month or two :)

    @7HUND3R you can use the GT accelerator with P1 brake pedal :)
