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,G27, G29 and G920 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 (except G25). 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.

Ricmotech load cells are recommended to be used with a robust chassis that has an integrated seat. Using the load cell when the seat is not at a fixed distance from the pedals will result in awkward positioning and discomfort while driving. Ricmotech does not recommend using the load cell with wheel stands, office chairs, folding chairs and the like. An outward "leg press" position works best.

The LC27 load cell kit is not made by nor endorsed by Logitech. The Logitech name and the G25 and G27 names are the property of the Logitech companies and is used for reference purposes only. Installation of this kit by yourself or by Ricmotech voids the factory warranty on your Logitech pedal set.

G25Pedal September 6, 2019
Reviewer: zooka from gunma,japan  
I am sorry if there is a mistranslation because it is a machine translation.

Attach to the g25 pedal.
Purchased from Japan and arrived in 10 days. Installation was also easy by looking at the manual on the web.
Brake control can be operated with force instead of stroke, making it easy to operate and fun.

The pedal feels direct and looks like a formula car. To make it look like a sports car, you need to replace the spring and bush.
Thank you for releasing a good kit.

G29 load cell brake pedal September 5, 2019
Reviewer: Andy Taylor from Croydon, London United Kingdom  
Honestly the new brake pedal works far better and you can now tail brake. My only complaint is that the new spring replacement is really hard so you have very little movement in the brake pedal now. But compared to the old system it's better.

Love the pedals Now! September 2, 2019
Reviewer: Tomas from Virginia Beach, VA United States  
This is an awesome mod. It makes the pedals so much better and I can brake much later. After installing the mod then you move the springs around and the whole pedal set is great. They are so good I would like to keep them and upgrade the base, I cant imagine a better set of pedals now!

Brake pedal upgrade September 2, 2019
Reviewer: Eric from Kansas City, MO United States  
I've been consistently getting faster on GT Sport but I just couldn't get that last 1-2 seconds to be competitive at the top level.

So I decided to upgrade the spring in the G29 brake pedal...this helped a little but was still not enough and after a little research I decided to get a load cell from Ricmotech.

The install was easy and straight forward.  It took me a couple of weeks of driving to really get used to it but once I was there It was night and day better and my lap times are competitive with the fast guys now.

If you have a Logitech with standard springs I highly recommend the load cell from Ricomotech...it  will make you faster!

Review Brake load cell conversion for Logitech G29 September 1, 2019
Reviewer: Steve Palmer from Christchurch., Canterbury New Zealand  
Hi all.
I did a review on this load cell on EERIEISSSS Time to up grade on You Tube. 04 month ago.
I have just to day put the Ricmotech brake load cell into my G 29. The brake has gone from very soft ( brake peddle travel of around 45 mm / 2 ins to 10 mm / 1/2 ins ) It has change the whole feel of the peddle. I think/know that the brake mod is worth the money I paid for it. I have a spreadsheet with all the tracks and car I have raced so I can make some comparisons but in saying that trying to get a race before and after close enough to compare was the hardest as if they were too far part  ( hopefully I would be a better driver so that the times would be distorted )So here goes ( please dont roll around the floor laughing when you read this ) Hyundai Genesis GR 03, Brakes at plus 03, running softs at Bathurst, ( On Playstation 4 playing Grand Turismo 06) before the mod 2.06.203 after 2.05.010. and at Suzuka 2.03.972 and after 2.02.128.
This was a cut version.
