    Any one here used/using the CSR Elite pedals? Having used the Ricmotech load cell for G27 (w/c has a really stiff bushing/durometer and short travel) for few years now, and now have to use my CSR Elites since the Ricmotech load cell is broken, Im finding the bushing in the CSR brakes quite soft/mushy and has a bit long travel. Think its the PU foam. Anyone know how I can stiffen this, and shorten the travel? Perhaps some kind of replacement? Anyone modded their CSR elites? TIA.

    Replace the PU foam with another elastomer.

    Yep, find another elastomer/rubber/whatever. Load cell will pick up the same force it just feels different,. softer gives more squish I've spent many an hour cutting up bits of rubber and drilling holes in it to get the right pedal feel on my load cell mod (apelectrix g27)

    Ok, any idea where to get these kind of elastomer? I have someone in the US whom I can ask to take them back next month.

    Can you post a pic of what they look like? I've used all sorts of things, skateboard bushings, rubber bumpers etc and adapted them to fit...

    Don't you have more that came with the pedals?
    I got 3 sets in different resistance.
