The greatest update to the Ricmotech load cell conversion kit for the Logitech G25,G27, G29, G920, and G923 pedals is here. This Logitech load cell kit was redesigned from the ground up. The new kit features additional pedal travel compared to the v2, easier installation without drilling any holes, and greater compatibility with the newest Logitech wheels. Want to improve your lap times? This Ricmotech 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. Threshold and trail braking is easier than ever with the LC27 v3 load cell kit.
This Logitech pedal upgrade kit has been engineered to replicate the feel and reaction of a real race car brake system. The LC-27 v3 load cell kit is designed to replicate the pedal travel and resistance of a race car's high-performance braking systems to grant you the ultimate in realism. The load cell responds to a maximum 70 lbs (30 kg) of force on the brake pedal face. 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 Logitech pedal upgrades 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 Logitech pedal upgrade kit includes all the parts needed to complete the installation. The Ricmotech load cell, two-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. Detailed instructions are provided in the "Documents" tab with photos taking you step-by-step in the process. No electronics skills are required to complete the conversion.
Unlike other Logitech pedal upgrade kits which utilize a load cell originally designed for use in a postal scale, the Ricmotech load cell in the LC27 upgrade kit is an industrial grade load cell designed to withstand much higher loads at faster response times. The Ricmotech 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.
Additional Features of Version 3
