I can say with 99% certainty that the load cell is solely responsible for my improvements

The next generation load cell conversion kit for the Logitech G25 and G27 pedal set is here. Want to improve your lap times? This load cell upgrade will help you get there by upgrading the brake pedal on your Logitech pedal set from a travel sensitive, potentiometer-based pedal to a force sensitive, based load cell pedal. Our unique combination of the 2-stage spring and precision load cell create the proper exponentially progressive feel akin to a hydraulic brake pedal. An all-new feature we just added dampens the return on the brake pedal to better replicate the feel of a hydraulic brake pedal. Now the pedal eases back up rather than snapping back like the original spring, while still releasing braking force to keep you fast on the track.

"The human brain/body system modulates most effectively by force, not by displacement. The side control sticks on current fighter aircraft hardly move. The feel of the brake pedal should approach the firmness and consistency of a brick. There are several factors at work here . . . "
(Stephen Ruiz, Engineering Manager and Carroll Smith, Consulting Engineer at StopTech LLC)

If you are looking for a soft and mushy brake pedal then this is not the load cell for you, but if you are looking for a load cell upgrade kit has been engineered to replicate the feel and reaction of a real race car brake system then you have found it. The LC-27 load cell kit is designed to replicate the pedal travel and resistance of Formula 1, Daytona Prototypes, Formula Fords load cell recommendationand spec Miata braking systems to grant you the ultimate in realism. When the brake pedal is under mid to full braking load the pedal remains at a steady height to make heel-toe downshifting possible without upsetting the balance of the car.

To get the most from the load cell upgrade you should keep the following tips in mind. Your brake will now have a soft initial travel range followed by a very stiff range. The soft range replicates the travel of the brake pads before they make full contact with the brake rotors. This range will give you about 5% to 10% braking force (depending on your final brake calibration). Use this braking range to get the weight of the car to transfer to the front wheels without applying too much braking force. Once the vehicle’s weight is on the front wheels you can apply more braking force without putting the car into an under-steer condition.

At this point, the brake will feel like you are pressing on a brick and will respond to how hard you press on it. This range replicates what happens after the brake pads are in full contact with the brake rotors and there is no further movement of the brake components. At this point the brake pedal is near even height with the throttle pedal (on the G27 only). This facilitates proper heel-toe downshifting since the brake is kept at the same height regardless of how much braking force you need to apply.

The upgrade kit includes all the parts needed to complete the installation. The load cell, three-stage spring and rubber bumper assembly, insulators, wire management and electronics that all fit inside your existing plastic spring housing to protect them from dust and debris. Only a small hole is required on your existing spring housing for the wiring as shown in the photos. Detailed instructions are provided with photos taking you step-by-step in the process. No electronics skills are required to complete the conversion.

Unlike other load cell pedal kits which utilize a load cell originally designed for use in a postal scale, the load cell in the LC27 upgrade kit is an industrial grade load cell designed to withstand much higher loads at faster response times. The load cell is designed to have an unlimited life cycle and the accompanying components are designed to be equally as robust.

Great Load Cell Mod for Logitech G27 July 31, 2017
Reviewer: Paul Solomons from Giralang, ACT Australia  
The load cell works perfectly, postage was fast (to Australia) with great DHL tracking. I can highly recommend Ricmotech. Thanks very much!

Bad experience July 18, 2017
Reviewer: Luis from Canada  
Unfortunately, all the good reviews led me to a bad purchase.
The product is very clean, good quality and easy to install in the G27 pedal. However, the good part ended there.
The feeling was very different from what I was expecting. There's almost no initial travel and when the hose provided as bushing is hit, it's the same as a rock, pedal will feel as it's at the end of course. The pressure required to brake was also above my expectations.
Another very important point is that this mod is incompatible with the OSW project. Connecting it to the STM32F4 will short the board (not permanent in my case) and reset it. I'm still trying to figure a way to make it work, but don't know if it would be possible. Richmotech support was very disappointing so I'm on my own with all those points.

I wish I knew the CSL Elite LC for 199$ before.

One word : AWESOME July 18, 2017
Reviewer: Travis Schwenke from Springboro, OH United States  
Moved from a "resistance" mod and couldn't be happier.  These areas have the most noticeable improvement (immediately!); lap time consistency, Brake apply modulation (way better threshold control in GTE cars) and Brake release, never has trail braking been so easy.

Well worth the money June 28, 2017
Reviewer: Michael Birger from Monroe, CT United States  
Big improvement over the the stock setup. I don't find the pedal travel to be a issue at all. It is a lot shorter than before . But it is much more like a real car the harder you push the pedal the more braking you get . You definitely have to block pedals if using at a desk even on carpet as they will move . And yes this will make you faster after some practice . This is great budget mod as hydraulic brakes are the next step up and are much more expensive .
