It indeed sounds good... but as long as my G27 works, I will probably not swap. Although that load cell brake sounds interesting.

In case someone wondered, it is possible to combine the G25 and G27 elements.
I tried the G25 wheel with the G27 pedals and it worked just fine.

Roso F1 wheel, with G27 base.

As a disabled sim racer, I've always had to use a wheel with paddles that I can use for throttle and brake. For many years I used a Thrustmaster RGT, which while it was an ideal wheel for me as it had two clutch paddles that I used for throttle and brake, was very poorly made. Both shifter paddles and both clutch paddles were made of plastic, and with extended use would start to wear, and I'd start experiencing double downshifts, no downshifts, lack of throttle response, you name it.

I used to have to get a replacement wheel every 6 months or so, which while every replacement was free, was still a pain.

Eventually I splashed the cash on a G27, and then had a wheel constructed for my own personal preferences. It took a longggggg time and many angry emails, but eventually I got my new wheel in early December 2012 and haven't looked back since! I now have more throttle and brake control, and a sturdy wheel that I'm hoping (without tempting fate) will last for many, many years. I've already noticed a pretty good improvement in my driving.

Is there some drivers here using Thrustmaster T500 rs?
I would like to have their opinions about it. Especially if they had a G25 or G27 before. :frank:

J'ai pas de t500, bien trop cher pour moi!

Par contre, j'ai possédé un thrustmaster (un guillemot en fait, mais c'est pareil) et il semblerait, que comme sur les anciens modèles, le T500 utilise des ressort à torsion pour son pédalier (juste hallucinant vu le prix de la bestiole) pig

Mécaniquement c'est de la m*rde, ces ressorts cassent assez vite!

Ils se ressoudent facilement avec un simple chalumeau butagaz, mais forcement un ressort chauffé, c'est moins élastique; et de toutes façons ça fini par casser de nouveau!

Un volant T500 avec un pédalier load cell de chez fanatec, sa serait bien :spy:

J'ai donc visité la fnac, boulenger, darty et les supermarchés du coin aucun n'avait de volant en rayon. Ils ne sont plus vendus qu'online ... et je n'avais pas la possibilité d'aller à paris

Bon j'ai fini par trouver un G27. Maintenant, j'ai beaucoup de mal à retrouver les sensations que j'avais avec mon ancien volant (momo racing), il y a du boulot question réglages.

Tu as ça qui est pas mal:

Pour le HGT les réglages fourni dans les readme du mod sont très bon avec le realfeel Wink

Bon en résumé, je me suis arraché les cheveux une bonne partie de la soirée sans résultat. Impossible de retrouver les sensations que j'avais avant, résultat l'escort sur le nurb, impossible de faire 2 virages sans me mettre dans le mur ...

Je vais donc poser des questions de noob mais si je continue, je vais faire un massacre Smile

Première question, j'ai la sensation d'avoir un flottement dans le volant (autour de la position neutre) lorsque je suis en ligne droite qui rend très difficile de tenir la voiture droite. Sur quoi peut-on agir pour ça ?

Deuxième question, j'aime bien avoir un volant ferme mais pas trop et la actuellement, j'ai un volant ultra léger à haute vitesse. Idem sur quoi jouer tout en évitant de se retrouver avec un volant en béton à faible vitesse?

help !
