AP Racing, best known for its brake and clutch systems, has launched a new floor-mounted reverse-pull-type pedal box, the CP5596. The box harnesses what AP says is a unique pull-type design, which allows the load through the cylinders to remain in-line during operation. This, states AP, eliminates the side loads normally present in push-type cylinders.
Each of the cylinders is mounted under the driver’s feet for optimum space utilization and accessibility. To minimize hysteresis and balance variation, the box uses needle roller bearings in the center trunnion, while ball bearing pivots allow for exceptional pedal smoothness.
The base is machined from solid aluminum billet, and the pedals from aluminum forgings. The entire pedal box, without cylinders, weighs 3.9kg. Adjustable clutch and throttle pedal stops, alongside adjustable foot pads, are included as standard. The CP5596 also features dual mountings for throttle potentiometers, with inboard mounting and the associated sensor available in a separate kit (CP5596-TS). It is available in a number of configurations: brake, clutch and throttle; brake and clutch; brake and throttle; and brake pedal only.
