T500RS Pedals Problem

Nov 25, 2010
Hi guys,

Lately i have bought a replica of the Playseat F1 Model and ever since, whenever I try to play, my brake pedal seems to have issues. The problem is that when i press the brake pedal 100% physically, it only applies around 50-60% both in Control Panel or in the sim game.

The problems seems to be related to the angle of the actual pedals, because when i disconnect them and put them down on the floor in a normal angle, connect them again, the brake comes back all of a sudden after I apply pressure few times after i connect it again.

Does anyone have an idea how I can prevent this from happening? The steering wheel and the pedals are about two months old. Here is a pic just for you to see the angle of the pedals.


If the issue is serious, i would consider taking it back for warranty rather than trying to fix it myself.

Thanks a lot guys

Sounds like either a bad USB connection or the brake pot needs cleaning. Seeing that the pedals are still somewhat new, I would like to think the pot doesn't need cleaning. That's usually needed after a few years of use.
