    Yes purple mode and I have seen their fb page already, will give it a try but doubt it'll suit my style and preferences.

    Install video which pretty much shows off the Fanatec gear also.

    Thanks Paul!
    I’m still liking the standard brake pedal feel and haven’t had the need/want to hook up the load cell pedal yet...... it’s still in its box! Haha.
    You definitely don’t “need” it. I don’t feel like I’m missing out on anything.... but then again I haven’t tried it. It could change my world.

    Hey @Spidey_11 , you've had this wheel a while now. What's your thoughts on it as I am considering buying one and I recall you came from a T300 which I have as well right now. Was the upgrade worth it?

    Top choice...makes the t300 feel like a toy u get out of one of those machines at a supermarket. While i loved the t300 ( first wheel ) unfortunately after many breakages i had enough......and i wasnt disappointed in the change. And all there interchangeable wheels and gear n suff are Fantastic.

    All of these stories about problems with t300's had me worries tbh, I forgot all about them when I bought the wheel. I've just gone for the regular elite pedals, not sure if I should have gotten the load cell as well.

    I didnt get the load cell because at the time i had to buy 2 full wheels and couldnt afford the other 500 odd bux for 2 of them so went without.
    They kill the t3a and the t3a pro pedals imo without the load cell.

    While i love having fun with a clutch pedal i dont feel im missing out on much without it as yet. Most my driving is in f1 cars and gt cars so not alot of need. would have loved it with the mustang and the caterham tho.

    What's the best way to connect my TH8A mate, drivehub?

    $90 will buy you a drivehub, I'm just hoping there's a cheaper option.

    I bought the LC brake pedal but still haven't fitted it. I seriously haven't felt the need to hook it up. I'm happy with the standard brake pedal.
    When the new Assetto Corsa comes out maybe I will :thumbsup:
