What is TrueBrake?

TrueBrake upgrades your Logitech G25/G27/G29/G920/G923 brake pedal to gives a positive and realistic feel. You feel the load not the small pedal movements. TrueBrake fits perfectly in your Logitech pedal set and all at a reasonable cost. It is the most appropriate and cost effective brake pedal mod available for your Logitech brake pedal.

What does TrueBrake do to my Brake Pedal?

  • Changes your relationship with the brake pedal to a load based sensation
  • Increases the load required to reach full braking
  • Reduces the amount of brake pedal travel to a few millimetres

SIM RACING GARAGE – TRUEBRAKE REVIEW

What’s inside TrueBrake?

  • Cylinder and body: CNC machined 6061-T6 aluminium
  • Piston: Has maximum of 4mm of travel inside the cylinder
  • Main Spring: Heavy duty spring resists the movement of the piston
  • Circlip: Retains the piston in the cylinder
  • Linear Motion Potentiometer: High quality component that detects movement of the piston

3 Stage Load Curve:

  1. When the brake pedal is pressed, the return spring compresses which in turn applies a small load on the TrueBrake piston.
  2. As the brake pedal is pressed harder it engages with the polyurethane transition buffer and the load on the piston quickly increases.
  3. The brake pedal is fully engaged with the TrueBrake piston and TrueBrake main spring.

The small movements of the TrueBrake piston are detected by the linear motion potentiometer which is connected in place of the stock Logitech potentiometer.

Engineering Quality

This unique and quality engineered solution has been rigorously tested and perfected.  All the components are housed in a 6061-T6 aluminium body and cylinder, CNC machined by AXC and designed to fit perfectly inside the Logitech pedal assembly. The end result is a robust and reliable pedal where the braking control is about pedal load rather than pedal travel. Just like a brake pedal should be!

Is TrueBrake a load cell?

We consider TrueBrake an “Electromechanical Load Cell” or a “Potentiometer Based Load Cell”.  Be clear that TrueBrake is not a Strain Gauge Load Cell. Strain Gauge Load Cells use an electrical strain gauge to measure the small bending of a spring element, which is often a metal beam. Using TrueBrake in your Logitech pedals gives similar end results as using a Strain Gauge Load Cell but at a much more affordable price.

Does TrueBrake measure load?

Yes.  The load compresses the internal heavy duty spring and that small movement is detected by the linear motion potentiometer.

Does a potentiometer measure load?

No. We would not claim that.

Does a potentiometer and a spring measure load?

When combined as a system, yes they do.  It’s basic high school level physics.

Can I return my TrueBrake if I don’t like it?

In the unlikely event that you are disappointed by your TrueBrake (within 30 days of you receiving it) you can return it for a refund.

Easy Installation

No permanent modifications are necessary to your pedals. TrueBrake connects in place of the stock Logitech brake potentiometer. No drilling, cutting or soldering required. TrueBrake can be installed using simple tools. You can easily remove TrueBrake and return your Logitech pedals to how they came from the factory.

Whats in the TrueBrake box?

  • 1 TrueBrake Unit
  • 1 Pedal Return Spring
  • 4 sizes of Buffers to adjust pedal free play.

Support

TrueBrake comes with 12 Month Warranty from date of purchase. The TrueBrake unit must not be disassembled or modified by the customer otherwise warranty is void.

Questions and answers of the customers

    Hi. You have 3 spring options - I assume this is to adjust how ‘hard’ it would be to achieve 100% brake force? I am finding mashing the default rubber in the pedal unit already a struggle (as I don’t have a full sim rig) so would I be better using the 80% or 60% option to reduce the physical force required?

    Hi Toby,
    Yes, that's correct,. The springs change the amount of force required to reach full braking. The 100% main spring is the hardest, 80% is softer and 60% is the softest.
    If you don't have a sim rig then it would be better to go with a softer spring. Also if you're using a PS4/5 or Xbox rather than a PC then go with a softer spring. On the PC you can calibrate maximum braking to your liking but this isn't possible on the Playstation or Xbox.

    Cheers
    Rob

  2. Hi, just a question about using the upgrade on a ps4. Does it need calibrating and are there actually any calibration settings on the console or is it as simple plug and play? Cheers

    On the PS4 and Xbox there is no console level calibration. Some games do have pedal calibration and settings.

    On the PC you can calibrate the maximum braking to your liking in the windows control panel or G-hub software.

    In either case TrueBrake is plug and play and will work without calibration.

  1. Bre (verified owner)

    V2.1 – 100% spring, minimum buffer free play, G923 on PS5, Left foot braking.
    Bang on Rob, this is an awesome mod that adds an impressive amount of realism. Really happy with the quality. Exceeded expectations. Thanks mate.

  2. Ralph Pickering (verified owner)

    At first, I didn’t love Truebrake. Waaay too stiff. But then, I’m a beginner using a desk mounted G29 and an office chair. I bought castors with brakes… a little easier since I stopped sliding backward, but sill less than ideal. And finally, I bought the 60% spring. Problem solved. It’s still a fairly stiff pedal, but I can easily get 100% braking without pushing my chair over backwards and, more importantly, I can get a range of braking without thinking about it, whereas before it was usually all or nothing. And that has made me a better driver. I still suck, but at least I tend to stay on the track (or, at least I stay on the track where braking is concerned. I might need an equivalent product for the accelerator to cure my lead -filled right foot.) If you have a sim rig and your pedals firmly mounted, sure – go for the 100% spring. If you’re like me, at a desk on a chair with wheels, skip the faffing about and get the 60% spring from the outset.

  3. Shiraz Musaddiq (verified owner)

    I just got my TrueBrake upgrade today and installed it pretty easily in my G29 pedals. The longest part of installation is removing and reinstalling the all the screws. I bought the 60% spring and as soon as I started playing it felt way, way better than before. I tried on GT Sport and it takes a lot more force to brake but it’s so much easier to modulate, trail brake and feels way more like a real brake pedal. It took me a few laps to get used to the higher force needed but once I did, I became so much more consistent on the brakes. I was playing for a couple of hours with no shoes and my foot did get a bit tired but I’ll try with shoes on next time. Definitely reccomend this upgrade to anyone
    who has logitech G25/27/29/923 pedals but you need a good rigid setup from mounting the pedals.

  4. Scott Town (verified owner)

    What can I say, I got it for my G27 and this make braking in any sim way better than the standard pedal braking system. First off the build quality of it is out of the world with a easy and simple install of it into my pedals. After finding a pre-load which I liked (2nd biggest) I got on the track and started hamming lap times with getting even more precise braking into corners, now even starting to trail brake which I found hard before. This is well worth the money and very much recommended getting.

  5. Shaen (verified owner)

    This is what the pedal should feel like from the factory. Amazing upgrade and much better able to control my braking compared to how it originally shipped.

    Mine is the 60% spring is the one I bought. I am thoroughly enjoying every turn now.

  6. Toni Martin (verified owner)

    Finally it’s a great advance in your G29 pedals!

    I bought the truebrake on January and for different reasons I didn’t have found the feeling well. After the firsts tests I felt the system too hard for me, and continuously I blocked the car because I couldn’t measure well the enough force I had to apply.
    I contacted with Rob and I found the possibility to change the spring for another one with the 60% rating. And…. when I switched the spring all changed!!!!

    Now has become a consistently brake system, that allowed me to decrease my lap time, and overall to be consistent lap by lap. It feels enough hard, but more easy to manage. I’m using the smallest buffer, and it is great!!!! it really seems a load cell!!

    Thank you Rob for the customer service after the order. Definitely recommended!!!!

  7. Olinto (verified owner)

    I Bought the model C and it works perfectly with playseat Challenge. That was a really worth upgrade, my lap time improved by 1 second in my first attempt.
    Consistence was major gain, Just find the correct calibration both in game /Ghub and be happy.

  8. Laurence (verified owner)

    Going from an extremely loose brake pedal where it was a struggle to consistently hit the sweet spot without drastically lowering in-game brake pressure.

    With the TrueBrake installed I can brake later, consistently with more power. My lap times have tumbled down as a result.

    I can take part in ‘default setup’ lobbies and be competitive.

    I installed the largest buffer for the first week of use but have since installed the shortest. Giving a little more space to trail brake.

    I definitely recommend combining the TrueBrake with the Leo Bodnar pedals adapter.

  9. Emiliano (verified owner)

    I have bought the True Brake in December, and while I did not have the time to use it as much as I would have liked, after few months of practice I am fully satisfied.

    The mod made me a bit faster, and a lot more consistent. I am now racing ACC with almost no mistakes (or minor ones) during race day. Complete game changer.

    Initially I struggled to adjust to the new pedal feel, but after a few tests and edits in Logitech software I found the correct set up in pedal force (48% in G-Hub). With the original set, and the Playset Challenger, my main issues were:
    To stop the car I had to press the pedal like a maniac, lifting the seat from the ground.
    Despite that, I was always looking for braking feel, each lap would almost feel completely different.
    Changing to True Brake solved both issues. I am now lapping with very constant pace. I am very far from ACC record laps, (but for that no mod or gear is going to help LOL) but I am now enjoying the racing. I can be consistent, and I can try to push always a bit more to find the limit. If you do not have the budget, or the space to install a full size rig with expensive sets, this is a no brainer.

  10. Steve D (verified owner)

    In a word – phenomenal! When first installed, it’s a bit of a shock as the brake feels completely differently and you wonder whether it’s a bit too hard to push. However, as I’ve gone on through the week, it has totally transformed virtually every sim I’ve played – from Euro/American Truck Sim to iRacing, from rFactor to Assetto Corsa no more random brake lockups because you’ve hit the brake too hard. Feels much more natural and I’m now in the realms of being able to brake consistently every corner because it’s becoming much more about muscle memory and less about how far to push the pedal (which never works quite the way you think it will).

    The proof, as they say is in the pudding – all my lap times have improved, dramatically, in virtually every racing sim I own.

    I’d also say that this is not some cheap-ass mod, clearly there’s a lot of love and attention to detail gone into this – it’s precision engineered out of premium materials. Heck, even the double-sided tape you use to stick the wire connector down uses a premium brand and not some thing that sticks once and that’s it, never sticking again. In my view, worth every single penny. I’ve fallen in love with sim racing again and it’s all thanks to Aeroxcraft’s TrueBrake.

  11. starskythehutch (verified owner)

    Received my truebrake today, installed then went to spend some time in F12020 to get used to it. With the saturation set to 60 and the second tallest “top hat” fitted the feel was immediately superb.

    I took a few tenths off of my best time, but the really noticeable thing was the consistency of braking. Hit the braking point almost every time.

    As others have said, you may or may not see an ultimate laptime improvement, but you will definitely see improved consistency.

  12. Benny (verified owner)

    About a month ago, I started racing regularly with some local AutoX friends in ACC on PC. I kept getting dusted by guys who are about the same level of driving skill as me in real life. They kept insisting that my G27 pedals were crap and I should replace them with something that has a load cell brake sensor.

    Long story short, I didn’t want to spend +$400 cad on a new set pedals so I went with the Truebrake instead. I received it yesterday, installed it then immediately headed to Monza with the boys where in one race, I proceeded to run a 1:50.3 when my previous PB was 1:52.6.

    I can now confidently close the gap with the car infront of me during braking, trail brake naturally to get more rotation and corrections that require light braking are now possible.

    This easy to install, plug and play mod allows you to apply your understanding of how braking works in real life through the pressure of your foot so your brain doesn’t have to actively think about the position of the pedal. The only thing that is missing is the vibrations.

    10/10 would definitely recommend!

    Cheers from Canada,

    Rocket Benny

  13. Ton (verified owner)

    Received the TrueBrake mod yesterday and very happy with the results so far. The TrueBrake is easy to install and the build quality is beyond any other brake mod for the G29.

    It took a few laps getting to grips with the brake mod (as it requires a lot more pressure than the default brakes), but soon I started shaving off 1-2 seconds on most tracks (ACC on PS4) and lap times became far more consistent. The main change is that instead of ‘pushing’ for fast lap times, these now come much more naturally.

    In addition, the AXC team has been very helpful and responsive to emails (when ordering).

    Thanks
    Ton

  14. Dan (verified owner)

    Had tried the spring mods, decided to do this combined with an inverted pedal setup. The build quality was great and delivery was fast. At first I really struggled with consistent performance due to figuring out calibration and being used to distance based braking but eventually I got it figured out. I am very happy with the setup overall and wish I would have done this straight away.

  15. Davie Thomson (verified owner)

    Absolutley brilliant.
    The difference between this, and other brake mod’s, is night and day. No wee dodgy rubber or foam stoppers, with a slightly stronger spring, but a great piece of properly engineered kit, that do’s exactly, what it says on the tin.
    I’ve not got in properly tuned in yet, (wee tip: Try all the different spacers, till you get the right one just for you), but already the lap time reductions are massive. (1 sec in Austria, 1+ in Monaco, France and Italy, and over 2 on a few others).
    I can also now properly trail break, and do it consistently, which is something I struggled with, but not now.
    Keep up the great work Rob.

  16. Brian (verified owner)

    The name fits the product! TrueBrake has a very realistic, hydraulic-like pedal feel and allows for real muscle memory of braking.

  17. Kody (verified owner)

    Hello,
    First off I’d like to thank AXC for the excellent customer service. I had a question about my brake kit not showing up in a timely manner and they responded instantly. It was a FedEx issue and not AXCs. On to the review. The TrueBrake was easy to install, took about 30 minutes using the videos provided. I first did a couple practice laps in a Skip Barber car and instantly noticed my laps were extremely consistent and about 1 second faster around Oran Park. After I got used to the feel I jumped in a fixed Ferrari race at Summit Point. Fastest lap prior to install was 1:12ish. I qualified pole position with a 1:9.2 and finished second as the #16 car. Can’t say enough about how awesome this thing feels. If you are on the fence do not hesitate. Thanks!

    More precise ratings:
    Build quality: 5/5
    Easy of install: 5/5 (at least for someone who is used to assembling/dissembling things, so this rating is subjective)
    Performance benefits: 2.5/5 (most important one)

    I’m using this mod since September and my improvements were minimal and inconsistent over different tracks. I was preparing one month to write this review because so many people said that their braking and driving got decent improvements at least. But I don’t have such experience like others using this mod and I didn’t want to give it bad review, because I don’t wont to be that guy who is giving bad review just because he can and I don’t think designer of this mod deserves it. I realized I was struggling to be precise coming out of hard braking zones, that top 30% of braking pressure. Luckily I got in touch with one irl racing driver who helped me to understand what he wants from brake pedal and what issue is with this mod and why I’m struggling. I come to conclusion that its not all about pressure and that some pedal travel is required too. So the main issue of this is mod is travel which is too small, if somehow travel could be extended roughly lets say about 1.5-2 times I think usefulness of this would be much greater. Area where I did see improvements is when there is needed just light controlled pressure to shift more balance to the front of the car. I would say when up to about 30 or 40%.
    In the end have to say very clever design which could work even better with tweaking pedal travel.

  19. Charles ‘Buck’ Krasic (verified owner)

    Highest recommendation for this.

    I have to admit, I actually delayed the install for some time because I was a bit nervous that it would take long to re-learn braking before realizing improvements. Adapting was much faster than I expected, it is just so, so much better straight away. More natural to pick up because more faithful to real car braking.

    I waited to review but I’ve been running this for a little over a month now. There have been constant changes and improvements in my simracing journey so far, but this one stands out among the most impactful and for sure the biggest bang for the dollar.

  20. Jamie McDonald (verified owner)

    Amazing mod. Has transformed the constancy in lap times and braking stability for any game I play.

  21. Max (verified owner)

    Bought in December 2020

    Order/Manufacturing/Delivery/Customer service (as I faced a few days delay) top notch.

    The mod in itself is easy to install thanks to the video found on the website/youtube.

    At this point you should know this is not a load cell mod however the feeling once installed is very close to one as you rely on the force you’re putting on the pedal rather than on the position of your foot.

    Now once installed the brake is Hard and I would say if you don’t have a rigid sim frame it could be an issue as the force required is substantial. So if you have a foldable playseat the frame will definitely move under braking.
    Then if you play on PC I would personally recommend to get the cable from “Leo Bodnar” (pedal adapter for logitec pedals around 20-30£) along with this mod as it allow for better resolution and complete calibration/customisation of your braking.

    To sum up if you are looking for a good upgrade on your G29/920 set and have a rigid frame go for it it’s the best mod out there.

  22. dwpennington30 (verified owner)

    Excellent upgrade, the machine work is stunning, it’s a shame it’s hidden by the pedal housing. Installation was easy, just follow the online pdf file. I rearranged the springs like others suggested, made a huge improvement in pedal feel. Very close to real world 1/1 pedals now. I’m still getting used to the new of them. But overall it’s a huge improvement. Would definitely recommend.

  23. Andrew (verified owner)

    This mod was very easy to fit and the quality is first rate. Initially I wondered whether I had made the right decision with this as I was understeering everywhere and couldn’t get close to my old TT times on F12020. After a few days (and it was days or me) of getting used to it however I found I was beating my best (and already pretty good) TT times by roughly half a second, and crucially I was consistently closer to my best times all the time. I have tried to analyse what had changed for me and the best way to describe the change was that once I lost my old ‘muscle memory’ I found that I could brake more consistently through the first phase of a corner and (finally) I had more control of trail-braking coming out of a corner. In my first league race since fitting it I qualified 3 or 4 places higher than I normally would and finished the race a couple of places higher whilst not picking up any penalties. This is a great upgrade at an affordable price – and as long as you are prepared to put some time in to “re learn” your braking style you will be quicker and more consistent.

  24. Josh (verified owner)

    The quality of this brake is amazing. You can tell a lot of time is put in to these. I play mostly dirt rally 2.0 and Iracing with a g27 on oculus rift s. I’ve done a lot of mods to try and add some realism to my sim setup but this break has by far added the most immersion and realistic feeling at such a good price too. I would expect to pay $100+ for something like this. This is the first thing anyone thinking about upgrading their g27 or similar pedal setup should do to add immersion/realism, get faster lap times or whatever. I cannot recommend more highly!!

  25. Tidders

    Oh my god what an amazing bit of kit this is, i was putting money aside for a high end set of pedals, but this has stopped that dead. gives amazing feel and consistency is now bang on. 10/10

  26. USCTrojan4JC (verified owner)

    I installed the TrueBrake mod for my Logitech G27 pedals a few days ago…and wow! This is a great mod!

    At first, I installed the second-largest buffer thinking I didn’t want much soft pedal travel before the brakes engaged more significantly. I initially was going to put in the largest one and then decided on the second-largest one before I closed the pedal assembly. I depressed the pedal a few times with both my right and left foot to see how it would feel with right foot- and left foot-braking. I thought the force needed was way too much for me to use well, but I made the mistake of not trying it in one of the sims I like to play (rFactor 2, Automobilista (CART Extreme mod), iRacing).

    I opened the pedals back up and put the smallest buffer in. I fired iRacing up and drove the Global Mazda MX-5 Cup very briefly. The amount of force needed to really engage the brakes was okay, but I didn’t like the greater initial travel before the buffer was contacted.

    So I opened the pedals back up again and put the second-largest buffer back in. I went back into iRacing and turned did a short 10-lap race in a Global Mazda MX-5 Cup car on the Charlotte roval and some practice laps at floor mat raceway in the Chevrolet Corvette C8.R. I then went into Automobilista and drove some laps in the CART Extreme mod in a 1998 Penske PC27 at Road America.

    The braking force needed to brake consistency is really nice. In the Automobilista CART Extreme mod, not locking up the brakes was hard to avoid with the stock Logitech brake pedal spring and potentiometer combo. With this mod, it is a lot easier to consistently threshold brake without locking the brakes up and the amount of force required feels much more realistic.

    I use my Logitech G27 on a desk. I have a box with weights behind my pedal assembly that sits between the pedal assembly and the room’s wall. I have heavy boxes placed behind my desk chair (Sparco racing seat on an office chair base) that prevent my seat from moving around when I’m braking. It is essential that both your pedal assembly and seat are completely secured if you are going to use this mod.

    Simply an awesome product. Installation was super easy. I have been using it for a couple of weeks now and it works smoothly without any problems. I needed some time to get used to it but when you do it’s such a nice feeling. The only thing that not really bothers me, but would be nice, is to have a wider range of buffers. I’m using the smallest one and I would like to have a bit more of the “dead zone” on the pedal. I think that they should keep the same number of the buffers that you get with the product, just that they would make a bigger difference between them. Otherwise, this is still a great product, totally worth its money. I would recommend this to everyone that wants that little more realistic experience and overall more consistent driving experience.

  28. Anders (verified owner)

    I just received my Truebrake. Installation is easy, if you have tried modding the brakes before (G29).
    I went for smallest buffer.
    Result is amazing. Withing 2 laps I was way more consistent, within 10 laps I was shaving of a full second on lap times (iracing) and being just amazingly consistent.
    This is a game changer for me. My laps in GT cars were just so much smoother.
    Highly recommended if you don’t have space and money to go to real loadcell brakes

  29. David Parisio (verified owner)

    Update, installed TrueBrake Mod
    G29 on Ps4. I exclusively play DirtRally2.0. I might go back and give WRC 8 another chance now.

    Pedal feel and sensitivity are amazing. Completely different pedal feel and I’ve already shaved seconds off my shakedown times from earlier today with the stock set up.

    Install was super easy and straightforward, definitely worth the money.

    Thanks Rob and whoever else has helped you with this amazing product.

    The wait was worth it, what an upgrade. Just knocked 1.4 seconds off my Melbourne time trial lap time. Was it a fluke? Nope, next lap within 2 tenths, and the next lap and so on. I cant believe how much i was locking up, always play no ABS, and coming to this its sooo much easier to judge and feel, and you really get the most out of your braking. For the record im a desk player (no rig) and use castor cups for my chair wheels. Works absolutely fine (my biggest worry). Ok, it has made me want a rig at some point, because i know it would be better, but if ur like me and stuck with a desk, and worried about the pressure needed on a desk set up, dont, love it. Game changer!!!

    Amazing Upgrade for the G29 Brake Pedal. I tried many modifications but nothing works so good like this true brake mod.
    After 2 hours of testing I found not many time on a hot lap, maybe only half a second, but I am a way more consistent in a hole race and can repeat the fast laps much more easy.
    Change the brake spring to clutch and the clutch to Throttle is very nice too. I use some 3d printed Distance mods for the springs too, so they are a little bit harder. Now I can dose the throttle better and together with the very good brake I can progress much better. So I think I found the 1,5 second that I loose to the top drivers in the next weeks.
    Even heal and toe is much better too.
    So thank you very much for the development of this brake mod for that nice price.

    Unlike others, I was entirely used to these brakes after the first corner. A+

    Also as others have suggested, switching oem brake spring to clutch, and clutch spring to Accel is totally worth it.

    This is a game changer for Logitech pedals. Installation was easy, hardest part for me was taking wires off stock potentiometer with my fingers, rest is a cake walk. At first I struggled to brake, cause leg was used to pedal travel, after few hours I couldn’t imagine a better upgrade for g29, I wish I haven’t spend so much money before on other brake pedal enhancements. I applaud you Sir Rob!

    I also suggest if you’re into CNC, please start producing Custom Logitech Tilton styled pedal faceplates, a cosmetic add-on but so much needed!

    I was angry when I finally received this…..because it’s so darn good, I wish I had gotten it years ago. I used the largest stopper in the kit and there is almost 0 detectable pedal movement! It feels like a load cell. My braking is now more precise, and accurate. Easily worth the cost (which is next to nothing compared to load cell mods) and the wait for backordered parts. Get the TrueBrake!

    Ok, this is my second review of this pedal, i reviewed after about 5/6 hours of use and was somewhat slower in overall lap times and consistency. At the time, after waiting around 7/8 weeks for this mod to come, i was very frustrated and left a heat of the moment review. Now, all credit to Rob, he e-mailed me and without question said that he would give me a full refund as it was the first bad review he had. By this time, i had calmed down somewhat and gave the pedal more time. So glad i did, i am fully up to speed now and consistency is there. The only reason i have not given it 5 stars is the fact that you have to take the pedals apart again if you don`t like the feel of the rubber stopper you have fitted, there are four of these to choose from varying in size. Not sure if some form of quick release could of been designed but i guess its about keeping costs down. The quality of the product does not come into question, its top draw. If you buy this mod, don`t be a hot head like me, it just took me longer to adjust to it, you may need longer as well.

    It is absolutely wonderful, very impressed. It is night and day. I have already broke my lap records but whats more is consistency in lap times!!! Thank you so much. Great company. Highly, highly, highly recommended. You will not regret it one bit. Cheers

    Absolutely amazing piece of kit! Easy to install in my G29 pedals. I mainly play Dirt Rally 2.0 and instantly saw my stage times faster, especially in older cars that don’t have modern brakes, as it made it easier to trail brake and not lock wheels under heavy braking! Can’t believe it was so cheap to be honest, when you compare how much fanatec and thrust master pedals with loadcells cost. 10/10!

  38. Anthony Grantham

    An excellent company to deal with and a truly superb product. It’s clearly well made and works fantastically well. I’d recommend without hesitation!

  39. Bruce (verified owner)

    Absolutely fantastic, these really are a game changer.
    This is a delayed review, as I have been waiting for my week off to install them and get some time using them.
    They look great, amazing quality, a straight forward installation and they work.
    I’ve come from ETS, ATS hence wanting the change of pedal on my G27’s.
    My sim times and consistency have been transformed by this mod.
    Obviously they take a little time to get used to, but as soon as you do, the difference is night and day. While installing these I swapped the spring from the clutch into the accelerator pedal. I’m now so pleased with the difference, I hope to change wheel, but will still use the G27 pedal set.
    My advice, if you’re thinking of buying these, just go ahead and get them.

  40. Keith (verified owner)

    Worth the wait and the cost. It’s transformed my old G27 pedals. I fitted the Truebrake, then put the old brake spring into the clutch, making it feel more like a proper car clutch; then I moved the clutch spring into the accelerator, which improved the stiffness. over the original.

    A fair bit of time and practice is needed to find the best brake sensitivity level and learn the new brake pressures and braking points.

    Also, although it’s not essential, it is worth trying the different buffer sizes that come with the Truebrake (even if it is a pain constantly dismantling and rebuilding the pedals) – there is a noticeable difference between the 4 buffers. The smallest one gives more spring movement before hitting the ‘piston’, so it actually engages low brake pressure more easily.
    The longest buffer leaves no free play, so it takes a bit more force to apply small/medium/full pressure, but in a very short travel.
    It’s personal preference whether you want the full range of brake application in the short travel, or a more noticeable difference in the pressure range by using the small buffer.

    This is definitely an upgrade over the original spring, and I would not want to go back.

    Great upgrade and at this price it’s the best that is available for the Logitech brake pedal.
    It’s a very well built unit, simple to install and is plug and play.
    I’ve had mine for quite a while now and it has made braking much better, being able to trail brake and modulate the pressure through the corner. It really is a game changer for £54.99, I’ve tried GTEYE spring upgrades and others that are £20 – £25 that aren’t that much better than stock really. Thanks

  43. Alex (verified owner)

    Fantastic value, utterly transforms braking.

    I went from guessing how much brake to apply to easily modulating on the edge of traction.
    Personally I recommend moving the old brake and clutch springs between the clutch and accelerator for overall stiffer pedals.
    This mod has knocked seconds off my laptimes and greatly aided consistency and confidence.

    Highly recommended.

  44. Khalid (verified owner)

    A must have upgrade to the logitech pedals and outstanding support. A high quality built that is easy to install. the firmer brake takes some time to get used to, but once you get the hang of it the laptimes get more consistent and easier to threshold and trail braking. It was near impossible to drive without ABS earlier and be consistent.
    Note: I had to set the brake gamma to 1.0 as its is very linear.

  45. Andre (verified owner)

    Great upgrade for a reasonable price. Easy and well described installation. Well manufactured.
    Took me a few hours to get used to it and i had to relearn braking for every car (iRacing), but consistency and lap times started to improve greatly. Trail and threshold braking is much easier now and controlable for cars without ABS.
    The only drawback (due to my setup) is that my G29 pedals set moves slightly on my hardwood floor during long races because of the higher forces needed for 70-100% braking.
    Highly recommended!

    Hello Folks….
    I spent lot of euro’s on brake mods for my g27 pedals.
    Nexim springs, secondary die springs, 3d rap mod….
    Wish this one was available earlier.
    This is the best most affordable brake mod on the market. This brings the G27, 25, 29 at the same level as a loadcell mod, without the hassle.
    Professional product, installs in ten minutes ( ok, after 15 times modding my pedals I know how to open them).
    Good, predictable braking, strong but not rock hard pedal feel.
    Look no further!! This is the best upgrade to make a affordable steering wheel kit, much better!!!!!
    Congrats on this product!!!

    Now some steering wheel adapter plates???
    Best regards!!
    Ivan

    Totally worth the money. At First i had my problems to get used to the pressure, but trailbraking is now easier. Doesn’t make me really faster because i am not that good, but constancy is overall better now.

  48. Lindell Harry (verified owner)

    Been toying with the idea of getting one for a while and finally bit the bullet. If you have a compatible logitech pedal set it’s a no brainer. Excellent build quality and way more predictable braking = faster more consistent times.

    Wish they did more mods tbh.

  49. Alessandro Lamanna

    I rarely write reviews, but I just installed this mod and felt like I needed to put out my two cents. I researched both this and the loadcell mod and I am more than happy with my choice. The pedal feel is a night and day difference with a short, progressively stiff travel. If you are completely used to your g29 brake setup, you will initially regret your purchase. “What the hell, this pedal feels weird!” About 10 laps in, I was like “this is awesome!” Once you get used the amount of pressure needed for 100%, 50% and 5% your trail braking will be improved and you will carry more speed through the corners. I was able to match my best lap times that took numerous attempts in GTsport time trial within the first 10 laps and with a little more time will easily beat it easily. You will also be more consistent lap after lap. Easy install and extremely well built. Highly recommend. No need to spend more money on a loadcell mod when this works beautifully!

  50. Rebel_488 (verified owner)

    Excellent piece of kit and really upgrades the pedal to something you will love. It takes a short time to get used to but you will quickly adapt your braking style to something very like an actual race car, accuracy becomes much easier, trail braking becomes instinctual. Don’t hesitate this is a bargain at the price. I preferred the 3mil option with less travel. Easy to fit.

  51. James Taylor

    Easy to install. Plug & play.
    Used on Gran Turismo Sport (PS4).
    I am very impressed with the brake feel and firmness, it’s very realistic and comparable to a real car!
    Brake pedal initially moves about 3mm then brake pressure is both felt through the pedal and applied to the vehicle. More pressure, (applied through a further 5mm of pedal travel) gives the vehicle between 1 and 100% in-game brake force.
    It takes real effort to reach 100% brake pressure, but nothing over the top. Heel and toe is so much better with the mod. More control is possible, and blipping the throttle whilst on the brakes is easier as the brake pedal depresses a much reduced distance. Added much needed realism to the brake. Very happy.

    I used to have a rubber mod and I was quite satisfied with it comparing to the default brake. But now braking feels even more detailed and progressive. Trailbraking comes more naturally. The run of the pedal is very reduced and it feels like pushing a brick. I installed the hard buffer and got used to it after a very few laps. It may not be a real load cell but the feeling is the closest thing you can get. My laps definitely got more consistent.
    Truebrake is great value for its price: good performances, plug’n play installation, great building quality (metal, metal, metal).
    Definitely a bargain for Logitech users

    To review this item in one word: WAUW!
    I just installed the Truebrake system in my Logitech G29, and I was surprised how easy the install was!!
    Also the instructions were ery clear to follow!

    It drives, and feels so much better then the stock Logitech hardware.

    AXC-SIM, keep up the good work.

    You have made me very happy indeed.
