    For your pleasure I have added another car, but with heavy Bop settings, the balance of the car is still fine. The settings may need fine tuning as time goes on? I have also removed the Lotus 2-eleven which sadly was very underpowered. See page two for Bop settings.

    It was the 2nd hand kit from Josh Martin in the RD market place thread Craig, wheel is TS-PC and pedals are T3PA Pro. In the couple of hours I had to set it up, the wheel is gobsmacking so far - with the old G920 it was so hard to catch a slide, with this it's instant.:inlove:

    The pedals are OK-ish, but was surprised the brake pedal is naff compared to the G920 with GTEye (and a bit of sponge) mod. No faith in the pedal (yet) was the reason I started at the back so I could get used to it.

    Will try and make something to give it a progressive feel..... now where's 'me rubbers:geek: :whistling:

    Interesting ..I was thinking about buying the TS-PC myself, although I am very fussy, I would hate to have one with a scratch on it ...superb price though :thumbsup:

    M in the cayman too please. Regarding the TS-PC I have one too and can't say enough good things about it. Although to be fair, I had a T300 before and the difference is not that big.
    Regarding the T3PA pro pedals, the conical brake mod and a custom brake pedal curve are a must. Normally I give about 70% of brake pedal range until I hit the rubber and then use the pressure to modulate the remaining 30%.

    I am using the TX300 (same as T300) and was thinking about the TS-PC. It is a hard choice because of my disability I doubt I will ever get any quicker..but I still like nice things and racing is not all about winning.

    Welcome aboard :thumbsup:

    Well, it is more powerful than the tx so quicker to spin but in terms of what you feel, it is about the same only more intense. It is the power of a t500 with the smoothness of the t300 really. A good wheel. The pedals are pretty meh though. The lack of a loadcell is a problem imho.

    Cayman for me please @Craig Dunkley. Thanks for arranging these races, really been enjoying them. Could not get my setup right at Spa, anyone got any ideas on making the Porsche more stable? Not too familiar with Watkins Glen either so need to practice

    Found an answer to the 'meh' brake pedal Miguel, cost is £1.50. Top dog pedal mod.jpg
    I kid you not:thumbsup: Yesterday I cut one our dog's balls up (don't worry, he's OK:whistling:) to fit the width of the brake bracket behind the pedal. Cut each side where the holes are so it fits perfectly behind the pedal, and keep the bits you cut off. Pushed down behind the pedal it gives good feel, though I inserted one of the cut off bits for extra resistance, you might like more, or maybe a bit of foam rubber - the result is fantastic, exactly what I'd expect from the official mod. This dog ball has a bell inside, leave it in if you like music with your braking:p:roflmao:

    Sorry for the off topic Craig!

    Hiya Lee, try http://thesetupmarket.com , I get most ideas from here though I find going through 10 to get a good one to build on. Hope that helps.

    Forgot to say, the website is unbelievably slow, but it does work.

    I use the conical brake mod and a custom brake curve and it still is meh compared to a loadcell. It offers some pressure modulation but it is not the same.
