    I'm having issues with throttle control, and have found out that my throttle is faulty. Under normal calibration, it spikes constantly at all times regardless of pedal position. Using the Bodnar calibration thing I've set deadzones to prevent spiking at min/max pedal range, but it obviously still spikes at anything in between.

    So, looks like I need a new potentiometer, possibly three since I may as well do them all at the same time. Does anyone know where I can get like-for-like potentiometers for G27 pedals?

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the reply Phil. :thumbsup: Someone sent me a handy cleaning guide the other day, which I tried out yesterday. It was actually quite simple as long as you're careful, and worked like a charm! No more spiking in my throttle, and it was immediately noticeable in-game.

    Thanks for that second link too, I'll definitely be bookmarking that one for future reference. :)
