The new JBV hydraulic pedal combo from HPP Simulation sets new standards in sim racing hardware. Hand made in the USA, these are not mass produced, they are hand assembled and beautifully engineered by Mark Harggett. This is the 4th generation of Mark's hydraulic sim racing pedals and combines all his years of know-how and development.
The JBV pedal sets come standard with everything you see in the pictures including 3 bumpers (40,60,80). The throttle has a light spring and the clutch has a heavy spring.
The JBV system sets the standard for world class sim racing pedals. The JBV’s are modular and can be in a number of orientations, including inverted. The JBV’s are HPP's 4th generation design and have numerous design attributes that provide the ultimate feel and performance, designed specifically for sim racing. HPP is the only sim pedal system using sim specific hydraulics, in which many years went into the design. These are full hydraulic, not load cell with a simple hydraulic damper.
The hydraulic brake system is designed specifically for Sim racing. The master cylinder is an inline design providing smooth operation. The slave cylinder is attached directly to the master cylinder avoiding any lines and tubes. Numerous design attributes have been tested, improved, tweaked and enhanced to provide the ultimate in Sim racing realism and feel. HPP uses a extremely high quality pressure transducer, made in the USA, with incredible accuracy, repeatability and durability. The pressure transducer is rated for a 50 million life cycle. The feel and pressure profile of the brake pedal is adjusted via custom molded polyurethane bushings available in 5 different harnesses. In addition, the user can fine tune their preference by adjusting the preload on the bumpers. The preload can be easily adjusted via the knob facing the driver. The braking threshold and modulation feedback provided to the user via the hydraulic system is outstanding.
The throttle pedal incorporates a true linear potentiometer unlike the common rotary potentiometer or slide potentiometers found on a lot of pedal systems. This provides true positional linearity relative to pedal movement. The end result is a super smooth and accurate throttle pedal movement. The throttle pedal travel is also adjustable.
There are 3 distinct “stages” of the clutch pedal travel. The first is slight resistance, somewhat free pedal travel, just like reality, this travel is very small. The 2nd stage is where you feel the increased resistance as if you were actually compressing the pressure plate spring on a clutch. The 3rd stage is when you’ve compressed the pressure plate spring and the resistance “releases” for the rest of the pedal travel.
Each pedal unit is modular and simply plugs into the brake pedal’s circuit board.
