Sim Pedals Sprint – SmartControl Presets

This page contains pre-made SmartControl profiles for your Sim Pedals Sprint.

SmartControl presets (pre-made profiles)

The SmartControl configuration tool for your Sim Pedals Sprint allows for an infinite amount of setup options, which can be saved into profiles. You have complete freedom to create your own profiles, but you can also use the presets which can be downloaded from this page.

The ideal pedal feel is highly subjective and there is no absolute truth when setting up your pedals for a specific car or simulator software. You can use our preset profiles unmodified, but you can also see use them as a baseline setup and then tweak them to your preference.

Over time, we will be adding more profiles for certain software + car combinations to this page.

A note on profiles where the max brake output is <100%

SmartControl allows you to limit the output of the brake to values below 100%, even though you apply the maximum (calibrated) force on the brake pedal.

An example where this may be of use is with iRacing: The brakes on certain iRacing cars will always lock up above a certain brake output percentage (for example 70%), which prevents you to use the full force range of the brake pedal (because your wheels will always be locked in the last 30% of the brake pedal’s force range).

By lowering the maximum output percentage of the brake pedal (for example to 71%), your simulator software will never receive more than 71% of brake signal, even though the pedal is pushed to it’s maximum force. This allows you to effectively use the complete force range of your brake pedal to control your car, instead of always having locked brakes in the last 30% of your brake pedal force range.

When using maximum brake output settings below 100%, please be aware of the following: In the profile screen a green bar shows the brake pedal output. Next to it is a force/kg indicator. When the maximum brake output is set to below 100%, this force/kg indicator will not scale correctly and provide a too low value. This will be fixed in a future version of SmartControl.

Calibration in iRacing when you use a profile with <100% pedal output

The Sim Pedals Sprint output values per pedal axis always range from 0-4095, regardless of your settings in SmartControl. An exception is when you set a pedal to a maximum output of below 100% in SmartControl.

When calibrating your pedals in iRacing, you must always calibrate the full 0-4095 range for every pedal within iRacing (also see the Sim Pedals Sprint manual for detailed instructions on the in-game iRacing calibration). When you do this initial one-time calibration in iRacing, make sure you do not have a SmartControl profile activated where the maximum output of a pedal is set to below 100%.

Within the pack with preset profiles we have included a SmartControl profile which you can use to do the (one-time) calibration within iRacing.
