Generic G29 / G920 Brake Pedal Mod

    I have the G29 wheel and pedals but the stiffness of the brake pedal is slowly knackering my ankle and foot where it's so damn stiff once past a certain point. I'd been a regular on the weekly hot lap threads on here but had to give it up for a month or so just so my ankle could recover!

    I know I can remove the rubber block inside the pedal and there's plenty of how-to vids around. Looks a fairly straightforward job.

    Has anyone on here carried out this mod and how have you found driving afterwards? Does it take a lot of getting used to when braking not having that extra resistance?

    I've take the block out, very simple job. After doing this it is a very light pedal. I just got the GTEye brake mod for my pedals and it is amazing. It just replaces the spring another very easy job.

    I could drive just fine without the block in place, it felt very light until I became used to it. You will have 100% brake travel, and that's the most important thing.

    So the GTEye still gives a good progressive feel you reckon?

    Yes, actually usable compared to the pedals with the block in place. You will have a much better feel of the pedal than you do with the standard spring and no block in place using the GTEye brake mod.

    Delivered, fitted and working @HavanaB0B.

    Feels much better. Gonna take a few hours to tune in to it I think but looking forward to seeing those lap times tumble ;-)

    Does opening the pedals void the warranty?

    Yes unfortunately

    Hi. Sorry to ask another question, but I really wanted to do this mod but I'm not even a year into my 2 year warranty and sim wheels tend to be temperamental things. I was wondering why it actually voids the warranty - is there a seal which you break when opening it or something? As long as I leave all the wires alone should it be ok? If it ever ends up needing a repair maybe I could just pop the rubber thing back in before sending it off? Thanks for your help

    IMG_0181.PNG Section 1 simply says damage resulting from modification or disassembly, suggesting that only problems relating to the mod won't be covered- e.g. If my wheel breaks, they still have to cover it.

    Hmmmm, good luck getting that one past their legal team then ;-)

    I think from that text it's fairly clear cut that, as soon as they realise you've had it in bits, they're not gonna cover you for any warranty repairs!

    As long as you're reasonably confident with a screwdriver you should be fine. There are several how to vids out there, have a good old study of them first. Only thing to be extra careful of is there are several fairly spindley little wires in there which you just need to be mindful of that they don't yank out when you separate the cover from the base and don't get trapped when you reassemble afterwards.

    It was a slightly easier decision for me as they were basically unusable without the mod in place (for me personally I mean).

    Ok, thanks so much for the help. First I'll be removing the rubber, then I might buy a GtEye Spring soon. Many Thanks

    Mod completed, feels really different but I'm already making up around 1.5-2 seconds a lap by braking later! Thanks so much for all your help

    Nice one! So is that just with the rubber taken out then? You've not fitted the new spring yet ?

    Just the rubber, haven't even bought the spring yet but from what I've found I think I will need too. I always play without abs ( in track cars) and it's difficult to not lock up with such a weak and non progressive spring.

    Google 3drap they do some mods for g29 pedals I changed the lil rubber block for one of there's they do 3 different stiffness
     
  18. I've done it and like it better. I feel like I have a lot more control of my braking. I might upgrade the spring in the future.
