CP5548 - Sliding Reversed Pull Type Family
This unique, optimised, pull type sliding pedal box is AP Racing’s solution to comply with the safety regulation of a fixed driver’s seat in GT Racing, allowing for the accommodation of different height drivers in the same car.
The pull type design allows the load through the cylinders to remain straight during operation, which eliminates side loads that you see in a push type cylinder, making it the most efficient sliding pedal box on the market.
CP5548 is mounted in two, low friction linear bearing rails, which provide 187mm of adjustment, with 18 fixed positions at 11mm increments.
The cylinders are mounted under the driver’s feet for optimum space utilisation and access. Minimum hysteresis and balance variation are assured by the use of needle roller bearings in the centre trunnion.
CP5548-CBT incorporates a brake clutch and throttle pedal similar to CP5538-1 & CP5516-88 models. The Pull type design allows for the pushrod to remain straight, eliminating all side loads making it the most efficient pedal box on the market.
