Description

What is TrueBrake?

TrueBrake is a tried and tested upgrade for the for the Logitech Brake Pedal.  Made from CNC machined aluminium, TrueBrake also uses top quality components. No cheap 3D printed 😆 plastic parts! Fitting TrueBrake changes the pedal to feel positive and realistic in a similar way to a load cell. It is the most appropriate and cost effective brake pedal mod available for your Logitech brake pedal. 


* Suitable for the Logitech G25, G27, G29, G920 & G923

What does TrueBrake do to my Brake Pedal?

  • Realistic Brake Feel
    TrueBrake changes your relationship with the brake pedal to a load based sensation. It enhances the brake pedal feel and provides a more realistic experience. It introduces progressive resistance to the brake pedal, simulating the feel of a hydraulic brake system.
  • Improved Control and Consistency
    With the TrueBrake mod, you can achieve better control over braking inputs. The progressive resistance allows for more precise modulation, making it easier to apply the desired amount of braking force consistently.
  • Customizability
    TrueBrake offers different spring options with varying levels of stiffness. This allows you to tailor the brake pedal feel to your preference or match it to the characteristics of the real cars you’re simulating.
  • Enhanced Immersion
    By providing a more realistic brake pedal feel, the TrueBrake mod adds to the immersion of your sim racing experience. It helps you better connect with the virtual car and improves the overall realism of braking.
  • Easy Installation and Reversibility
    Installing the TrueBrake mod is straightforward and does not require permanent modifications to your Logitech pedals. It can be easily installed or removed, allowing you to revert to the original configuration if desired.

TrueBrake GT Edition

The TrueBrake GT Edition includes four main springs. Blue 15kg*, Green 23kg* (fitted), Yellow 30kg* and Red 38kg*.  It is fitted with the Green 23kg Spring as standard, which is the most popular choice.  Circlip pliers (not included) are required to change the main springs.

*Approximate load required to reach full braking.

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 sensor that detects movement of the piston

Engineering Quality

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! AXC SIM engineered sim racing products

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.

Easy Installation

The TrueBrake component replaces the stock Logitech brake potentiometer. No drilling, cutting or soldering required. TrueBrake can be installed using simple tools.
 

Whats in the TrueBrake box?

  • 1x TrueBrake Unit – Fitted with Green 23kg Main Spring

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.

    Which spring you recommend for playstation 5 and gt7? I got playseat challenge so i dont want seat to lift off but i want to get that muscle memory for consistency and stiff brake. I am just afraid, because no pedal calibrating option on playstation, is there any chance i could not press brake to 100% with 23kg spring (60%) ?

    • 10mm Spanner/wrench
    • Long Nose Pliers
    • Philips Screwdrivers

    Hi,

    Yes it works perfectly with the wheelbase. 

    Its down to personal choice in your situation as it sounds like your rig could handle any of the options.

    The most popular choice is the 60%. You can always change the main spring at a later date if you wanted, they are available to buy separately.

  8. Is there any concern when using the Leo Bodnar adapter with this mod? I've heard that the adapter reverses the polarity of the positive and negative rails and could be an issue with some sensors.

  16. 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

    A

    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.
