Pedals

Discussion in 'Sim Racing Hardware' started by Geran Brown, Aug 23, 2011.

  1. Hi,

    I've been looking around for pedal upgrades for the G27 wheel and have come across many options but I don't know what would be recommended and I don't have the money to buy all of them and try to them out so I am looking for some help.

    I am wondering out of the list below, which would be the best bet (bang for the buck) and still give a realistic feel.

    1. AP Electrix
    2. Nixim brake mod
    3. Perfect Pedal
    4. PTR brake mod
    5. ARC brake mod
    6. CST pedals
    7. Fanatec Clubsport pedals
    8. Sim-Sport Pedals

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  2. I have CST. They are expensive but will never wear out. ever.
    If you have g27 peddles then the nixim is the best cheap up grade. Worked well for me.
    my 10p worth.
    Regards
    George

    I recently swapped my G25 pedals for the Fanatec CSP's and have found them very good. Very happy so far.
     
  4. I think, depending on budget, you have to go for either the CST of CSP pedals.
     
  5. My budget is anything under $800USD which is all of them except for the Sim-Sport pedals.

  6. If you have $800.00 in your budget, there's no question you should get the CST's.

    You won't regret it IMO.

    I've had the CSP's and the CST's are much better and like Will said, bullet proof.

    I can't say that about the CSP's.

    +1 on Todd.
     
  7. +2.
     
  8. Thanks guys! Looks like I will be getting the CSTs from Todd then. :)

  9. Get the stiff brake upgrade, you won't regret it.
     
  10. I agree, forgot to mention that.

  11. I would like to bring this poll back up, but with a wrinkle. my budget is $200-$250 and I have a PC, PS3 and XBOX 360 but the 360 is not a requirement. Made some changes to the poll. been doing a bunch of reading and can't decide.

    I am wondering out of the list below, which would be the best bet (bang for the buck) and still give a realistic feel, please note I am a casual sim racer currently I do not go online much at all, so tell me if you think I should save my money and stick with the stock G25 pedals no feelings will be hurt.

    1. AP Electrix
    2. Nixim brake mod
    3. Perfect Pedal
    4. PTR brake mod
    5. ARC brake mod
    6. CST pedals DIY kit
    7. Fanatec Clubsport pedals/Elite
     
  12. Hey all, I wanted to share a project I did recently that might be right up your alley. pdf attached gives a build list and details of the mod. Basically this is a pneumatic upgrade to the G25/G27 pedals. I have tried a few pedal sets out there and this compares favorably with the most expensive of them. Best thing is, if you don't mind some DIY this is dirt cheap. Enjoy!

  13. This link doesn't work. I really wanted to read it too!!
     
  14. maclean525 really great built. I wander how you wire the SAm sensor to the bodnar board? is the 3 wires can be directly connected to the analogue inputs on the bodnar board?, will it read pressure readings like an axis?
     
  15. That's exactly right. The beauty of the sensor is that it's NOT a load cell it outputs exactly like an analog potentiometer so wiring is easy :D
     
  16. Don't take my word for anything, but...

    I just picked up a pair of CSP's which were an "upgrade" from the G25 pedals. Maybe because I haven't gotten a super amount of "in-car" time on them but I'm not sure what all the kerfuffle is about. Sure the brake has a tiny load cell on it, but I'm pretty sure I may have bent it already, and it's just not as "progressive" as I expected. I think my money would have went further being saved for a pair of CST's.

    Like I said, don't take my word for anything. I'm sure alot of people would say I'm wrong but (since I'm not a huge fan right now) there simply a "minor" upgrade until a pair of CST's are under my feet.
     
  17. I also just upgraded recently from a G25 with Nixim mod to a set of CSP´s, and i also found them not that progressive in stock form, they felt almost like potentiometer pedals with a tiny amount of loadcell action at the end. I then moved the brake rod one hole higher, and wow that is progression. Very little pedal movement and you really need to push hard to reach 100%. You should try this, it doesn´t sound like you tried this.

    I think i will give maclean´s project also a try in the future, i still have my G25 pedals and this looks very promissing.

  18. Anyone here use the AP Electrix load cell mod? Saw a video about it on youtube, looks like a pretty good sollution for G27 users.
