    Hi there, i have a Driving Force GT wheel and sometime ago my pedals start malfunctioning (sligthly activate the brakes and releases them extremely fast wihtout having the foot on the pedal) and this problem has been getting worst (now it sometimes happens on the throttle), i've oppened the pedals several times to clean them to see if the problem was solved but it apeared again after a couple of uses. So i'm thinking about getting a new set of pedals, but i don't know what pedals are compatible with this wheel, and i didn't want to change the wheel since it works ok for now. I have been thinking about fanatec csr pedals ( http://eu.fanatec.com/Pedals/CSR Pedals EU ) but i don't know if there is any adaptor to connect them to a logitech wheel, and i've also been thinking about a used set of g27 pedals (or a new one if logithhech sells them separetelly form the wheel). What advice can you give me?

    Thank you

    Rui, it doesn't look like those pedals will connect independently from your Logitech wheel. You need a set of pedals that will connect separately via a USB cable.
    The CSR Elite has this connection but is more expensive.

    Alternatively, if you can pick up a second hand / dis-used Logitech G25 or G27 pedals, these can be connected separately via a Leo Bodnar adapter. These work fine, I have one.

    Unfortunately, you can't buy G27 pedals separately new, only as part of the total wheel package.
    Your DF GT Wheel combined with a Fanatec pedal set (or second hand G27 pedals) would be a good combo for the price.

    i was afraid of that, i hadn't noticed the elite pedals had a usb cable until after posting, after i saw that i suspected about that. Just another question, with the adaptor the clucth on g27 will work rigth? and the same in the fanatec wheels connected via usb, rigth?
    thank you for your help :thumbsup:

    I don't have the Elite Pedals, so can't confidently comment.
    I do have the Fanatec CSP ver 1 pedals and find them very good. I'd expect the Elites to be similar.

    ok, thanl you for your help, it's been really usefull. I've been doing a little of research and i don't seem to find a used set of g27, so i maybe will go for the fanatecas, i've also read in some places that fanatec seems to have a better costumer support, althgouh i hope i don't need it if i go for htem csr elite :roflmao:
