    hi guys,

    I was wondering if anyone had any useful tips for my brake setup using the t300 on ps4.

    I always seem to lock up no matter what I do as I'm very heavy footed

    Thanks in advance

    Try turning your brake pressure down (found in the car tuning screen).

    And say hello to your brother Patrick for me, I'm a big fan. DEVILS!!!! :devilish::devilish::devilish:

    I tried lowering that a little, it sort of made me second guess my breaking points and I often over shot the bends

    Maybe it's a comfort thing, I'll try introducing a deadzone or something and practice.

    You could try dialing your brake bias a little rearward too.

    I'll give it a go too.
    Would a brake pedal mod help do you think?

    Absolutely. The standard brake pedal on the T300 pedals isn't very good and hard to be precise with. Using a good mod you can easily modulate between, say, 60% brake and 63% brake, so you can apply just a touch more without locking up. With the standard T300 pedals you don't know if you're applying 3% more brake, or 15% more brake, and generally you end up applying more than what you need and thus lock up. I've not seen many mods for those pedals yet, but I'm sure there are some easy/cheap options out there. I know on the DFGT it was popular to use one of those squishy stress-reliever balls to cram behind the pedal and get a more progressive feeling, something similar should work on the T300 pedals.

    Here's one option. http://www.isrtv.com/pc-racing/diy-thrustmaster-tx-and-t300-rs-brake-pedal-mod/

    I applied a felt pad mod to my pedal and it works a treat.

    Also used one to take out the 2mm dead zone on the accelerator.

    Now the lock ups will just be my bad driving or setups

    Thanks
