    Damn those springs are far too expensive (imho)!
    I'm just going to measure them and buy a bunch of different ones from ebay.
    If that kit was 20 Inc postage to the UK I'd buy them. 50 is ridiculous!

    Yes, the price is a bit steep but I don't have the time, inclination or skill to make my own :-) I am not even sure when I will get the time to try and fit them, maybe over Christmas but when I do get a few hours I am more interested in actually playing (especially in VR) than getting the tools out.

    Please do!

    You definitely don’t need to go too much stiffer - as I noted early, moving the brake spring to the clutch, and the clutch spring to the throttle, gives noticeably improved weight to the pedals. Use that as a guide.

    Finally got around to fitting the upgraded springs to the T3PA Pro's. I fitted the light brake spring, the clutch and accelerator. They are all significantly heavier now than the stock springs, yet there is still a good range of movement. Still using the green BBJ Brake mod (which has split) with the brake. They are going to take a bit of getting used too, and after a couple of races this afternoon, I can certainly feel the difference (in my legs).

    The only thing I've done is put the spring that was optional for the brake pedal, and put it into the clutch spring with a bit of extra lube. Maybe it's 15% stiffer, an improvement but I require more if it's to match the feel of the 350z + GT3.
    I also messed up the positions of the pentometers but thankfully PC2 made it easy to calibrate the pedals, and it was just a case of turning them, putting the top plate down and testing until it was correct. And this time I've marked them so I can see when I try the other springs.

    Glad to hear it's stiffer, how are you getting on with it now ?
