  TRACKSTAR 6000 STEERING UNIT

ECCI is proud to introduce the TRACKSTAR 6000 pedal unit. A breakthrough design, the 6000 features true automotive ergonomics with a top-pivoting hang down pedal mounting. This is mated with a heel rest offering a stable platform for pedal operation.


Unique to the 6000, all critical pedal geometric relationships are fully adjustable to uniquely suit each user. These include: pedal angle from vertical; heel rest angle and distance from pedals; pedal height from heel rest; pedal to pedal lateral spacing; and individual pedal resistance rate.


The TRACKSTAR 6000 also marks the debut of the new PMB-II, ECCI's latest version of its proprietary pressure mapped brake pedal system.

FULLY ADJUSTABLE CHASSIS GEOMETRY

The TRACKSTAR 6000 is designed around a simple geometric principle, a triangular section with adjustment of both angle and extension. A triangle forms a very rigid structural shape, regardless of the length or angle of its individual segments. The flexibility of this triangular concept offers unparalleled flexibility in setting pedal angle, position, distance, and spacing. From desktop to low slung cockpit installation, no other pedal unit is as adaptable as the TRACKSTAR 6000.

ADJUSTABLE HEEL REST

ECCI's CDS4000 model provided an integral heel rest at the bottom edge of large blade-type pedals. This accommodated a wide variety of foot sizes. With the new 6000, the heel rest is separate from the pedals. To provide flexible accommodations, the rest is adjustable in angle and distance to the pedals. The pedal frame also allows adjustment of the height of the pedals relative to the heel rest. This makes long distance racing comfort just a few turns of the wrench away.

ALL NEW ECCI CUSTOM ALUMINUM PEDAL PADS

During the development process, ECCI Labs determined that only a custom designed pedal pad would meet all of the design goals of the TRACKSTAR 6000. Ordinary pedal pads provide no lateral adjustment of pedal spacing. ECCI's unique design allows substantial adjustment of spacing via slotted mounting holes. ECCI's pedals are also about 30% larger than other pedals of similar design, offering the home user a more comfortable pedal for long distance racing.

PMB-II NEXT GENERATION PRESSURE MAPPED BRAKE PEDAL

Another ECCI exclusive innovation.  As an integrated solution for our 6000 pedals, the PMB-II is an entirely new design from our previous PMB modules. The PMB-II offers not only the very highly progressive feel of the brake in a "real world" auto, it also provides highly progressive braking response that exactly matches the feel.  Two key adjustments are available: maximum braking force level and initial preload. The PMB-II is standard on the 6000 GTS, and is an available option for other 6000 series systems.

INDIVIDUALLY ADJUSTABLE PEDAL TENSION

The TRACKSTAR 6000 has an independent spring pack for each pedal that offers two critical adjustments. Widely adjustable maximum braking force, and initial preload. This allows the user to set the force required to actuate gas, brake, and clutch to appropriately differing levels. The preload adjustment sets the amount of force needed to initiate pedal movement. A high initial preload may prove useful for a driver that prefers to rest their foot lightly on the brake while it is not being used.

 

USB SUPPORT AND HIGH PRECISION POTENTIOMETERS

ECCI offers USB support via the integrated control board in the wheel unit. The pedals simply plug into the wheel. In order to prevent damage to sensitive electronics from physical shock loads, the pedals do not contain a stand-alone USB interface. Using the native HID driver in the Windows operating system, the 6000 is truly plug-and-play. Joystick port versions are also available if desired. The 6000 pedals sport ECCI's exclusive new high performance potentiometers, providing highly accurate, ultra smooth control precision, and lengthy service life.

OPTIONAL CLUTCH PEDAL

The new TRACKSTAR 6000 is modular in design providing flexibility of a two or three pedal configuration. Designed from the start to operate as an integral ergonomic part of the 6000 pedal unit, the 6000 clutch is extremely fast driving. Standard on the 6000GTS, the clutch is also available as an option for any 6000 series unit. The clutch bolts on using the structural components of the two pedal unit, making for a strong integrated assembly.

OPTIONAL  'INSTANT COCKPIT'  PEDAL STABILIZATION SYSTEM

When using the massively high pedal pressure settings available with TRACKSTAR 6000, it is strongly recommended to restrain the unit from moving. Floor or wood substrate attachment of the base brackets is a simple solution using the provided anchor holes.  If portability is needed, the adjustable, highly rigid "instant cockpit" system quickly connects the forward edge of the pedal unit to a bracket that rests underneath the seat of the driver. This accessory provides solid anchoring without attaching to the floor.  Also highly recommended for LAN racing events.
