Hi Together,

i'm wondering if anybody tried the Skateboard Bushings Brake Mod with the cheap Thrustmaster pedals from the 150/300 Thrustmaster Wheels?! I know the mod is designed for the T500 but i'm wondering what's the different between T500 and T300 brake pedal that the bushings shouldn't fit?
I own the 150RS and the wheel is ok for me but the brake pedal is crap. It's hard to find the right pressure without locking brakes. So i found some different mods:

@AirFlight: I tried the bumper brake mod, and it does help. It's easy and cheap to do, but you don't have to order the "parts" online as suggested in the video. Almost any home improvement store or even Walmart has eveything you need.

I used the stock T150 pedals with the mod for about 3 months and it helped improve brake feel vs trying to use muscle memory to remember how much to depress the brake pedal for a certain amount of braking force. B&H Photo had a flash sale and I picked up the T3PA pedal set for only $75 w/free shipping. The T3PA's were worth the price for the upgrade because I ended up getting the TH8A shifter, so I wanted a clutch. The conical brake mod that came with the T3PA's really helps with brake pressure feel. I've heard that the T3PA Pro pedal set is really nice, but until I upgrade to a T300 wheel I didn't feel like spending the money at the time (twice what I paid for the regular T3PA pedals). Try the cheap bumper brake mod and see if you like it. I think everything cost me about $7.

I've heard of people using a squash ball behind their pedals (brake and accelerator) but I've never tried it so I can't vouch for how well it works, but it makes sense (like the rubber band mod). Do some research before you buy because there are dots on each ball that let you know how hard or soft it is, so you'd need to get one you think will allow for the amount of pressure feel you'd want. I couldn't find any in the local sports shops so you might have to order them online. That's why I recommend trying the bumper mod first. If you end up trying all of the different mods, the cost for the parts alone could end up coming in close to what I ended up paying for the T3PA's.

THX for your response. I don't want to buy new stuff atm, i want to improve the pedals and use them till i buy a complete new wheel. I think the next logical upgrade for me would be the T500. But i don't want to start any discussion about comparing wheels in here. ;) I think i will go to the hardware store today and check if they have anything that will fit.
