    What I have found interesting about PT-1 pedals, is that you don't seem to hear of many complaints but neither do you hear that they are the best pedals ever either. Does that suggest they are just right? I have heard the clutch can be really noisy, when the rollers snap over peak of the ramp.

    Thanks for that, I've got to be a little careful with the resistance in the brake pedal (left foot braker) as I have a dodgy left knee that is prone to...well collapsing sort of! I've not looked into the resistance alterations you can do on the V3s yet, maybe that's something I need to concentrate on. The GTEye in my G25 Brake is just fine so I need something similar to that if possible.

    I'm already using the Pedal Calibration tool from Leobodnar to calibrate my pedals (Seems to work ok, is diview more advanced or just the same thing?

    Hey Marc

    Just realised I have parts including pedal box ( similar to one in pic)
    If your interested I'll dig it all out
    If I have all parts in my stock do you want me to put together for you?

    Cam do brake pedal to suit

    If your not in a rush
    unless you want to build yourself?

    Nah I'm good but thanks for the offer, think I've settled on the V3s but not 100% decided yet...as for starters they won't fit in my rig :mad::p

    Could you (or anyone with V3s) do me a huge favour please and measure the Width of the base? I've found "Packaging Details" on their website but unsure if they mean the Box is comes in. The CSl Elite LC is 14.5" (thanks for the link) which is too wide for my rig but I could make it work, if the V3s are smaller width ways then hat would help a lot, thanks :)

    Exactly 34 cm. (13.5 inches ?)

    Edit : The drilling templates give 341 mm for the CSP.V3 and 388 mm for the CSL-EP ;)

    The v3s are too small in the width imho,when you have big testies like me,it becomes uncomfortable after a while,but you get used to it.

    Thanks very much, that is going to be extremely tight and I may have to slightly alter the Rig with some spacers just to make it a few mm bigger, but it would work I think :) CSL is way too wide and would require an entire rig re-construction and I can't be arsed with that :p

    Just need to make a final decision, the price is still higher than I was hoping (my T300 cost less!) so will continue to ponder the options but in the meantime thanks to everyone for their help :)

    Do you mean the one in post #12.
    I have the Fanatec Elite load cell pedals which I bought second hand for £150 when my basic fanatic CSR pedals bonked. They are pretty good IMO, but I am just not hard enough on this load cell caper. One issue was that my OMP race seat tilted backwards despite my santa sled efforts to stabilise it longitudinally.
    Lengthening the stabilisers got me about 10% more braking force but I'm still at 90% at best.

    But I digress, if you are in the mood to make a set like that pic I am keen to discuss it with you.

    Yes similar to those ,
    I decided to dig out all the parts and build them anyhow so at least some one can enjoy them, not sure how long so keep an eye on these forums

    Here's mine I built few years ago , they are totally rock solid bomb proof 100% reliable fiddle free :

    Whole feel of brake can be quickly adjusted by taking the nut off and changing that yellow spring (I have an assortment of springs) or taking it out all together and adding those red compression rubber things , brill

    I have all parts to make another set it's just man hours that needs to be added

    Ok, maybe let me know by pm what you think is a fair thing for your efforts. A pic would be welcome too.
