    It was originally on the top cover of the wheel, on top of the heat sink, which is positioned on the side of the motor. Thrustmaster moved it to beside the heat sink in later versions of the wheel. That is were I installed the new fan.

    When I purchased my Fanatec ClubSport pedals I also purchased the Brake Performance Kit. Yesterday I finally decided to give them a try. I didn't want the brake to be to stiff, so I installed the 2 softest elastomers.

    So what started as a good feeling brake is now a perfect feeling brake. Before doing the change I had the preload at 3.5, travel was still good but the compression didn't feel right. Now I have the preload at 1 and the amount of travel and the compression feel great. The Damper is set at the same spot as before at 4.

    So, for you guys with V3 pedals, I highly recommend the Performance Kit.

    You've come a long way Jimmy. Stepping up to the Obutto and Fanatec must make for a great driving experience!

    A local non-profit that saves the lives of cats and dogs has a monthly auction, this month they had a number of items by Puma. I got these shoes that go for $90 USD for $28 CND. The only thing wrong with them is a pen mark on the side of one shoe. I might make my brake pedal a little more stiff now that I have some proper racing shoes and start driving more BMW's.
