Installing the PE Pedal Box: Assembly positions

PE Racing Pedal Box install and mounting positions

When installing a Racing Pedal Box into your car, trial fitting the assembly in place before drilling any holes is highly recommended, as well as grabbing one of our Pedals…

Our patented frame adapts to a variety of floor shapes and angles without the need of removing bolts, making an easier and lighter install for you. The floor mount design can be described as universal for its adaptiveness to suit the comfort & mechanical needs of different drivers.

It is very important that Pedal Assemblies are mounted securely to an adequate frame or panel. Increased rigidity provides increased accuracy, control and pedal feel by the driver. Our system provides a stiffer install, without additional weight that is usually added for reinforcement, providing you with a lighter and easier install. The mounting is required to resist loads of a driver’s legs in panic situations, typically 130-200kg combined on the clutch and brake pedals. Together these loads are required to be withstood by the vehicle structure and the method of attachment to your vehicle. Seek professional advice if you are not confident with the mounting.

See variations below and how easy the PE Racing pedal box can adapt to bulkhead, floor & firewall positionings.

When installing, check that no interferences will be present by temporarily clamping the assembly in place including Master Cylinders and have the driver trial the position by operating all the pedals.

The pedal levers, pedal faces and pushrod adjustments may need to be completed to achieve a comfortable position while selecting your preferred mounting location and incline angle. If further adjustments are required, temporarily complete the adjustments prior to moving on with permanent mounting.

The mounting feet – Lower foot and Upper foot spread the loads and decrease any concentrated loads to your vehicle panels when installed. When mounting through sheet metal panels, ensure a large guard washer or equivalent is used under all fixing heads. This provides a larger clamp area to reduce localised stresses. When mounting the pedal box, be sure to use high-quality fine thread self-locking fasteners with large diameter washers to both sides. The minimum suggestions are 4x M8 fasteners for the lower flange and 3x M6 for the upper flange. An increase in size would increase the factor of safety.

Once you found the position, temporarily fix the assembly in place and check that no twisting is induced when tightened. If twisting is present, shim the appropriate locations to eliminate twisting. This will endure smooth operation.

Consider your mounting options and consult a professional before commencing any drilling for the fastening of your pedal box.

Happy installs.
