    Very nice. I just use a couple rubber bands, but your mod looks much better XD

    anyone got some part numbers as they make thousands of those springs? also what nut/bolt/screw size should I be using? does the spring come in black?

    thanks

    I got 12mm m4 dome head screws of ebay, hope it's the right one, but for 99p it's worth the risk. Will let you know how it turns out

    edit - This was the wrong size do not buy these.

    Hey Majnu, I ordered a pack of those springs off Amazon, a couple that I picked out first off fit and work perfect.
    Thanks for the suggestion mate.

    got my springs today and the ones in the box set do work, They are not as compressed as the one in the video but I'll be damned paying £14 for 2 springs.

    the screws I used were these
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/M2-M2-5-M...320&pid=100015&prg=1006&rk=2&sd=140922280951&

    M3X12mm

    They need gentle pressure with a 2,5mm allen key to get in but they fit in as snug as a bug in a rug.

    Total cost £5.62 but you'll have an assortment of springs left over. Unless someone can find the exact spring cheaper this is the most cost effective route to go down I found.

    I've done the same, it works really well, just be sure to cover the leather gaiter with something, as the springs start to wear a hole in it. I've got a bit of cloth on mine at the moment, must get round to putting something a bit more professional looking on it :)

    I got my G27 today. Why was I expecting it to switch between H-shift and sequential at the turn of a knob?

    That was the G25, but so many of them were breaking, Logitech dropped the design.

    Welcome to the G27 family

    Got to re-learn right foot braking after using left foot for so long.
