    Hello guys !!

    About a year ago I started to use a load cell on my pedal (Ricmotec). But I thought he was very hard. I tried several techniques to make it softer as my car was.

    Still he was not satisfied. I decided that I wanted to have a hydraulic pedal. Those that are for sale are very expensive, so I decided to do one on my own.

    After much searching on the internet, I was able to build a hydraulic pedal.
    My pedal uses the structure of the G27 pedal, and the circuit is by LeoBodnar.
    The total cost was approximately $ 300.

    I am still in the process of adjusting and fine tuning the pedal sensitivity, but I can say that I am very satisfied with the result.
    At road circuits, I improved about 0.5 seconds on the mixed circuits. Oval I have not tested accurately yet.



    Soon I will present my sim motion.

    Why do you use a second slave cylinder and not a brake caliper?
