    I feel kind of silly, seeing as how I race at my desk (no rig), but the conical brake mod on my T3PA pedals finally busted, so I upgraded. I was initially torn between fixing my T3PAs and upgrading, but once I managed to get it past the budgetary committee (single-member, unilateral-authority), there was no turning back. It goes without saying that the difference in quality and feel is just lightyears. Definitely a great combo with the CPX Adapter and my T300 Ferrari Alcantara.

    A good set of pedals will improve your lap times more than any other piece of hardware. I thought the T3PAs with conical were great--definitely a huge improvement over the TM stock set--but the V3s just blew me away. Whether it's being able to ride another car's bumper into a corner, or just the precision you have when braking in general. They're amazing for the price.

    It's funny, because originally, I thought they were expensive. Then I got them, and now I'm flat out amazed that they can sell them at the price they do. Really incredible piece of hardware.

    Totally agree! My purchase anxiety started to ease as soon as I opened the box and saw/felt the quality of the hardware. And then I was in love with them by the 5th lap.

    One caution... take care with the screws and allen nuts. If they feel tight, apply torque very slowly. The screws and nuts aren't the best. They're fine if you use a little caution, but if you man-handle them, they will strip very easily. Get a good allen wrench set, and replace any nut that shows signs of wear/stripping as soon as you see it.

    Yeah fortunately, I used to be a mechanic, so I have a good feel for how tight hardware should be. I also prefer Locktite over brute force

    A Ryzen 5 1600X, and a motherboard to stick it in. I actually will gain a USB port from that board to, so that's handy. And it's also nearly $100 less than the one I have now.





    And some RAM too since what I already have isn't guaranteed to work on Ryzen. I sent an e-mail to G.Skill, and they confirmed that it wasn't going to work. I also think this kit has nicer lighting than the ones Corsair makes. I am curious to see what these would look like when set to white, since I do like the white LEDs poking through the tinted glass panel. If not, Fabulous Rainbow will work.

    Ricmotech REALGEAR RACEPRO D22 PANEL-STYLE PROGRAMMABLE BUTTON BOX. Just waiting for it to come in the mail. I chose it because the size and buttons choices fit my need and the pre drilled mounting holes on the back that fit Vesa mounts. It also comes with a sheet of Pre labeled stickers for the buttons
