Fore and aft adjustment. Pivots A & B must be loosened and the bolt at ‘A’
installed in the desired stepped slot. The heel rest also rides in a horizontal
slot allowing fine tuning of its spacing to the pedals.
Vertical adjustment. The pedal frame can be raised and lowered in each
stepped Pivot A mounting slot to adjust the distance of the pedals from the
heel rest. This accommodates a wide range of user shoe sizes.
The angle of the pedal frame from vertical is the most important ergonomic
adjustment. A desktop setting will require a more canted geometry than a
lay-down cockpit. Pedal frame angle is changed by loosening Pivots A , B, &
D, and sliding the rod assembly of Pivot B along the adjustment slot until the
desired angle is reached. All Pivots must be tightened after such an
adjustment. Next the heel rest should be adjusted in angle to create a
natural well for the driver’s heel.
Lateral pedal spacing is adjusted by loosening the two screws that hold the
pedal pad to the pedal arm. The pedal pads can slide laterally to the user’s
preference. Make sure to tighten the nuts firmly before using the pedals.
For those installing their controller in a tightly dimensioned cockpit… the
Trackstar 6000 pedals can be reduced to only the pedal arm frame. When
attached securely top and bottom, the pedal arm frame can be used without
the base to provide a minimally intrusive installation.
ECCI also offers an accessory part which locks the pedals in a fixed
relationship to a driver’s seat. Called the “Instant Cockpit”, this is a
telescoping bracket that locks the pedal chassis to the base of any chair. It is
particularly useful if you use a caster-type office chair. It keeps the chair from
rolling backward and the pedal unit from tipping forward when high PMB
settings are used. Contact ECCI for more information or visit our website for
the latest on this accessory.
STEERING RESISTANCE TUNING
THE MONOPOINT II SYSTEM
The Trackstar 6000 was designed to provide the serious competitor the ability to
tune all important steering feel characteristics to suit individual preference. The
ECCI exclusive MONOPOINT II cam resistance system [Figure 21] offers fine
adjustment of four important steering parameters:
1. Maximum steering resistance pressure - adjustable by changing the
number of springs used [Figure 22 and 24].
2. Steering centering pressure at the neutral position - adjustable by
changing spring preload [Figure 24].
3. Steering wheel lock - adjustable by changing positions of wheel travel
limiters [Figure 23].
Rotational damping is also adjustable for FLDS equipped units. See
Section 3.5 for more information.
