    Hi
    I’m having trouble with my new hydraulic pedals. Before I had the HE pro and they were great. Now with my new B.J simracing pedals I’m locking the wheels much more than with my old HE pro. Should I reduce the sensitivity setting for the brake pedal?
    Thanks

    personal preference & getting use to it
    Some like rock solid and intense pressure

    I prefer some travel & then rubber type stop to press against at end if heavy braking
    Takes some fiddling to get right

    not sure how much adjustability on your actual pedals
    Setup like from new if you’ve changed your actual pedals

    I don't think there's a right or wrong here. You have different pedals, they feel different, you are applying the force differently with them. You can either adjust some settings to compensate for now (or forever), or leave the settings as-is and relearn how to brake with them.

    Yes I’m sure I need a learning curve ... I will try firstly to decrease the pedals sensitivity to 80% then with the time to increase it.

    I have Simtag pedals and I have no problem at all, everything is perfect. I can't really help you since my pedals are directly connected to my Simucube 2 but you first have to calibrate your pedals in the tool provided with them (or LeoBodnar tools if compatible) and then check this calibration within rFactor 2, maybe change upper limit if needed or if not "in line" with other sims (nothing more frustrating than different inputs level when you swap sims).
