Speaking of the G27..
Lets take a look at this baby
The box that has been collecting dust for about 5 months- I have used this wheel for one 2 day racing session on the pc. It is kind of a pain to set up and once its on your desk, no room for keyboard/mouse.
Thats a nice leather clad wheel with a metal center and metal paddle shifters-
Heres a picture of the pedals on their plastic base. I will have to use at least one of these, as the arcade pedal kit that I have only has 2, and I want to be able to use the shifter. These pedals are too close together for my liking. I can't step on the brake without hitting the gas. Lets take this bad-boy apart and see whats she's made of
After removing some screws and the pedal faces, this looks promising
The mechanisms are made out of metal for the most part except for the red shock part.
You can see they are labeled A, B, and C for accelorator, brake, and clutch.
As I plan on spacing these pedals out more, I am probably going to have to extend these wires-
As you can see in this stock photo, the default layout of the pedals is to have the shock at the rear or backside of the unit, so the pedal pushes downward when actuated. I am going to switch this by flipping the units around, and mounting them horizontally, so that they push 'in' instead of 'down'. I think this will feel more authentic, as the pivot point will now be at the top.
It will end up more like this, except the gas will be on the right and clutch on left, instead of reversed like this pic.Edited by bob808 - 12/19/10 at 11:10pm
