I'm looking at upgrading my wheel to direct drive and wondering if the T3PA pedals can use an adapter to allow them to be connected to the PC directly, or will I need to change pedals before the wheel?

I think they still use the same RJ-11 connector as the T500 RS pedals? There are adapters available online that can make the pedals a standalone device.

One method would be buying this: http://www.sim-sport.net/store/sim-products/bodinhausen-t500rs-pedal-adapter-detail

Which converts the plug to a G25 pedal plug and is designed to connect the pedals to this: http://www.sim-sport.net/store/sim-products/bodnar-cable-logitech-g25-g27-dfgt-dfp-or-generic-pedals-adapt-detail

Which makes a G2X pedal set work as a standalone, and using the adapter should work with the Thrustmaster pedals as well.

You are totally right Jussi. I am doing the exact same thing. I got the G25 Wheel and H-Shifter and using the T3PA-Pro with the adapter+cable :)

I just plug in my G25, leave it on the floor in the corner and only use the shifter. Thankfully it worked without having to plug in the G25 power cable, so there's no FFB ever sent to the G25. =)

Jussi, that is interesting, do the pedals and shifter work without power with the G25 plugged in USB as I have a brand new T150 I wanted to try but didn't want to lose the G25 pedals and shifter?

Shifter at the very least does work, since I've used it like that for well over a year already. =)

It's not the most convenient solution, but it's free. =)

Nice one, will give it a try as I really don't want to use those T150 pedals but really wanted to try the wheel, it's been sitting in a box for over a month lol.
