Simlab P1X owners with Heusinkveld pedals mounting question.

I am about to order a P1X since I just purchased a DD1. I currently use Heusinkveld Sprint pedals and have their baseplate with a heel plate option. It seems fine and any flex could be attributed to the weak rig they are mounted to.

My question is when I order the P1X should I order the optional baseplate slider tray. It's more about that super thick baseplate than the slider option. It looks super rigid and would serve as a base to not have the gap between the profile and elimnate any flex. The slider option would be convenient but I worry about any annoying "play" or movement in the slider option. It's just me so once I have it adjusted I probably wouldn't move it, may just use the thick plate.

So since I already have the Heusinkveld baseplate is that sufficient, and the SL one is unnecessary? It is 150 Euros after all.

Haven't got Heusinkveld pedals, but do have the P1X + slider tray. It is a massive thick and rigid slab of metal with zero movement when fitted to the slider.

The slider isn't great and required a lot of faff to fit (including drilling addition holes and sourcing alternative fittings), but is brilliant once installed. I couldn't imagine not having the option to adjust for others with different leg lengths.

So it doesn't move (at all) , adjusts for other users and looks cool.

If you already have the Heu baseplate, it depends on the value of free adjustability to you, as the P1X pedal tray should make the most of any rigidity afforded by the sprint baseplate.

Mounted to the rig directly, also added pedal heel rest.
If you have multiple users sharing the rig, adjustable plate would be beneficial, otherwise adjustment is general PITA. But for single user, non sliding plate is the most solid option.

I got the HE baseplate, mounted pedals to that and that in turn to the P1. All very adjustable without needing anything else.

My general theory these days is that anyone else that wants to try my rig will fit in it to one degree or another, maybe not perfectly but it wasnt built for them so I dont go out of my way cost or otherwise for the 1% of the time someone else is using it.

I used the Sim-Lab base plate to mount the heusinkvelds to the pedal tray of my P1-X.
I also bought the seat slider for it, but couldn't mount it as I wanted to, so deleted it from the setup again.
Only downside is, that you cannot easily clean below the base plate...

So I'm just trying to mount my Ultimate pedals to the P1X. Is it correct that I need to mount the SIM lab heel rest to the 40/160 as opposed to the 40/80 profile.

Essentially the heel plate is too deep to fit on the thinner profile so pedals mount between thick and thin profiles with the pedal tray reversed?

I don't have pedal tray reversed and heel plate is mounted to 40/80 with pedals on 40/160.

I put the sliders on my pedal plate and found myself making minor adjustments for a while till I get it dialed in just right ergonomically and would absolutely recommend it. The slider itself was rather onerous to install and once one side popped out somehow. Other than being a pain to install totally worth it.
