G27 with Nixim brake pedal mod

    Hi guys, this is my little story.

    Last night I replace my brake pedal by the Nixim brake spring mod (spring + little rubber)
    It was said we could do better lap times with it, blah blah... I thought Yes yes of course it's some marketing bul**** again. Anyway I bought it, because I would like to harden the brake pedal, a gain some comfort.

    So I installed it, and launched the Ferrari hotlap on the Hungaroring.
    First lap I was near my record, second lap I beat it by 200ms...

    WTF ??? It has been 3 days I tried to beat it, it was impossible, I had already reached my best I thought.

    I played again, until this morning, I beat my record lap after laps.
    Now I made nearly 2s better than my previous record (from 1:48:5xx to 1:46:3xx).

    So if you have a G25 or G27 it's a great mod for low cost (I spent 20€).
    The G29 has already a similar brake spring, I don't know if it worth it.

    Also, I replace the throttle spring by the clutch spring. And the clutch spring by the previous brake spring.
    The throttle is also stiffer, maybe it also helps.

    good brake hardware is the single most important gear you can buy for simracing.
    being able to modulate the initial force and release it slowly just before the apex is really beneficial for lap times.

    IMO, the one in the G29 is total bull****. I needed to stand on the brake pedal (!!) with my almost 100 kg's, to get full brake power.

    I have the GTEye mod in my G27 brake pedal, which is really nice. You definitely get a better, and more consistent feeling with more brake resistance. For me, the optimum so far was the loadcell brake pedal in the Fanatec CSL Elite pedals. That really had a very nice feel. Unfortunately, i couldn't operate the pedals here, because they always fell over, so i would have had to fix them on a wood plate, or similar, and, i had some issues with fixing the wheel as well, so i sent them back, and went back to my G27. Still works fine, of course. :)

    Seems like it is not ACC related :)
    But surely you get better feeling of pedals after modding. I bought this one http://www.gteye.com.au/product/gteye-progressive-brake-spring-for-g25-g27 and replaced all springs (GTEYE -> Brake -> Clutch -> Throttle). Feels much more natural.
    Not quite sure it was just a new spring that improved your laptimes :) Maybe your improved skill/other racing lines/car setup/good sleep/mood/etc also affected :)

    you will get a even bigger advantage going from nixim to a load cell.

    Yes, but it's not the same price.
    The next improvement could be the Bodnar cable, to increase the resolution...
    Well no, the best improvement this cable can give, is to be able to replace the G27 pedals by some Fanatec ones :p
    Pedals with a load cell brake. Like a Fanatec Clubsport V3 :D

    Maybe it's a combination of better brake precision + placebo effect :)

    I liked the GTEYE mod for my G27 , switched to T3PA pedals with the conical brake mod which felt really cheap compared to the G27 ones.
    Then got a set of second hand Fanatec CSP v2 which are great and did help my times.

    But my biggest time improvement came from switching to VR
  11. I've also replaced the standart spring of my G25 with the Nixim GTEye one. The feeling of the brake was much improved. After that I changed to the load cell mod of Apelectrix.
    Was happy to got one used from Canada.

    But like said in the posts above the GTEye is a big impovement over the original spring. And it's a really bargain and easy to install.

    Me too, last week end I tried to play again on pancake 2D my laptimes decreased to -2s.

    Obviously that mod improves simulation, but honestly that time had also plenty of room for improvement, and I'really far from being an alien
