    I've made a couple of modifications to a set of Logitech G27 pedals both of which I can highly recommend to anyone wanting to try a relatively inexpensive upgrade.

    The first is changing the default brake spring to a progressive one. These can be purchased from GTEye and although it's not super cheap, it's easy to install and by swapping the old brake spring to the clutch it gives a much better feel to the pedals.

    The second one is adding rumble effects to the pedals. There's a detailed youtube video from amstudio to show how to do it.



    I mainly followed this but used both the small and large rumble motors from a gamepad on both accelerator and brake pedals which when combined with the Simhub software, allows for a nice variety of effects with for example a different vibration for lateral traction loss compared to acceleration spin. It also allows setting feedback for when you lock your brakes up on the brake pedal.

    Made a little cover-plate to help protect the wires on the back of the pedals out of an old wooden blind.

    Wired the motors to a couple of 4 pin aviator plugs for connecting

    Cramming in the Arduino Uno and Motorshield into a small enclosure for connecting USB, power and aviator plugs.

    I'm just debating whether to make a little protective cover for the rumble motors or not.

    Hopefully this is of some interest to fellow Logitech owners!

    I decided to completely blow the budget and make some covers for the rumble motors. (An old fluorescent strip light cover with 4 skimmed milk bottle caps hot glued in place) :grin
