    I have the same issue. I have gone back to Logitech pedals with an adapter to my T300 base. I have not been able to find a part number to replace the pot's yet. But I'll pull them down and see if I can measure them and match it that way.

    Its a 25k with 60 degree rotation. Not available off the shelf. I had to pull the pot apart and clean the contacts with contact cleaner and paper towel. I have contacted pagnian who said they will chase one up. They took my email and said they would copy me in on email tral to thrustmaster but as yet no email, so i dont know what they are doing.

    Well let me know how that goes. The rotation makes it tough to find....

    Do you happen to have the contact details for thrustmaster. I have searched and can only find complete units, no spares or parts. Thanks NAACS

    Hey Adrian,
    NAACS has given me the price he paid for the pots from o/s. With delivery and specialised delivery fee runs out to about $110.00. If its ok with you we should combine our orders to save some of the fees. The pots themselves are $6 euro and i recon i will get 3. Let me know if this is ok.

    Cheers mate.

    Well I'm used to paying stupid amounts in freight. I'm happy to order extras as well as what you need @Kart-No-1.

    @PaulCox I still might order another set of pedals. Just would rather save up for a Fanatec wheel eventually.

    Sorry NAACs, i thought the 40 euro was on top of the 22. But its instead of for express delivery. So about $42.00 or so. I thought it was a bit pricey for delivery.
    All good.

    Is it worth looking at a group buy? I would be interested in 3 too.

    Ok I got a response and they list different pots for the brake and accelerator. They will only sell me 2 of each. So I think we all need to message them so we can combine postage. They probably want to prevent on selling of their parts. Bit of a pain to be honest considering I can't buy these closer to home.

    I have sent them a message requesting a group buy advising that i am part of Race on Oz and that several of our racers require replacements. I suggest everyone that needs replacements send them a message requesting same and see where it gets us.
