Hey guys, I've been beta testing a replacement brake pedal assembly for the Logitech G25 and the builder has given me the green-light to share it with the SM guys. It's AWESOME. It's similar to this in function: http://thomas-superwheel.com/tswsite/index.php?page=sh...temid=1&vmcchk=1&Itemid=1

Basically it's an assembly that replaces the potentiometer and instead uses a load cell so that the brake is now controlled by pressure instead of distance. The pedal pressure is MUCH MUCH more realistic. It was designed to mimic a Formula Vee (the creator is a Vee racer) and I can attest that it does! You can now finally heel-toe properly and the pressure is much more realistic.

I don't have a dog in this hunt other than being lucky enough to get the beta version to play with. It's an awesome piece guys. Get in line!

Pricing will be sub-$100 perhaps WAY less than $100 depending on how many folks want one. If you want in, send an email to ajpastore@rcn.com as he's the guy building them. Let him know I recommended him so you get top of the list.

Here's a pic:  -

Let me know if you want any more info on it.

Cheers,
...Colin

Thanks Colin. I ordered one today. For others interested, this upgrade works on G27 pedals too.

Installed and works great! Finally a brake pedal that doesn't feel like it needs to be bled. Makes heel toe realistic. Only $69.
