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.

Load cell G27 July 16, 2019
Reviewer: James Foster from Adelaide, South Australia Australia  
Excellent product, highly recommend it. Has transformed my sim racing experience. I brake later, with smoother application, and can do it consistently lap after lap. I was sceptical about this, thinking it wouldn't help that much but it really did. I'm 33, been playing racing games since I was a kid and seriously online racing for the past 10 years, and it's really helped me.

Game Changer July 11, 2019
Reviewer: stefan waller from San angelo, TX United States  
Nothing helps be faster, more consistent, and have a better experience than brake pedals feel. The stock setup being travel based for the Logitech unit leaves lots to be desired. This upgrade feels more like a standard brake pedal and makes small changes in pressure more easy and more reliable to get to braking levels desired.

Amazing load cell feels 100% better July 9, 2019
Reviewer: Jordan Boshart from Brampton, ON Canada  
This load cell was the perfect thing to add on top of my Leo bodnar cable. The load cell plus the cable turned the g920 pedals into something I really enjoy and can see me keeping down the road and upgrading just the wheel

G29 load cell upgrade July 8, 2019
Reviewer: James Matney from Shawnee, KS United States  
Thanks to everyone at Ricmotech for their support and excellent customer service. With in 2 weeks of getting the load cell I have dropped almost a full sec at every track and cracked the top 25 on several tracks on gt sport.  I am already drooling over most of their other products.  Thanks Ricmotech

Definite Improvement June 27, 2019
Reviewer: Alan Snyder from PA, United States  
Coming from a heavily-modded G920 pedal set to this was a big difference. I needed to absolutely stand on the brake to hit 100% before, and I feel like this hits the max pretty quickly. I even had to drive with the pedal inputs displayed on screen for a while to re-calibrate my foot so as to not lock up everywhere. However, threshold/trail braking has become almost second nature now, and the feel has definitely been improved. The only reason it's not a 5 star review is that I had expected it to take more force to max out from reading the other reviews.
