Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use the A1 pedals with my existing wheel?
All A1 Racing Gear products plug into their own controller, either the A1 8Bit USB Controller or the A1 12Bit USB Controller. Your system will see the multiple controllers and you simply configure your controls as needed within your sim.
Why do you have an 8Bit and a 12Bit Controller?
The A1 8Bit USB Controller is the original controller designed in 2004. It managed the original A1 GT Pedals, A1 GearBox and A1 GT Wheel. The A1 12Bit USB Controller uses completely different technology required for the A1 Pro Pedals and new A1 GearBox. It also runs the original A1 GT Wheel and A1 GT Pedals. The 8Bit USB Controller cannot manage the A1 Pro Pedals or new A1 GearBox.
I already own a set of A1 GT Pedals and the original USB Adapter. Is there any advantage in upgrading to the A1 12Bit USB Controller?
If you have absolutely no plans for an A1 GearBox or an A1 Button Box, the main advantage is the amount of steps the A1 12Bit USB Controller will provide over the 8Bit Controller. The normal amount of raw data steps for the throttle using the 8Bit Controller is about 120. Using the 12Bit Controller will yield over 10 times that number. This equates to better control and smoothness.
Can I use the A1 12Bit Controller with my Act Labs RS 2006 pedals
Yes, but you will also need the A1 GT Cable.
Why do the A1 Pro Pedals use a load cell on the brake?
The 60kg Load Cell measures pressure applied to the pedal. This is a far more accurate way of representing the brake pedal in a racing car. The harder you press, the more brake that is applied.
