Fanatec CSL Elite Pedals Loadcell Kit Review

Fanatec Loadcell Kit

What exactly this pedal add-on deliver for you? To better answer that question we need to understand the difference between pressure and travel first, As humans, our body can memorize muscle tension (Pressure) much better than foot position (Travel), that’s the reason behind this technology, better understand the pressure you add to the brake rather than the travel you apply. And that’s why all car brakes measure the pressure and not the travel. Even F1 cars have almost no travel at all.

When you buy this product you add a third pedal to your CSL Elite Pedals. The former brake unit gets equipped with a new limiter pad and ​becomes the clutch pedal.

Worth the money adding this to your system? I think It will, you can add up to 90 kg pedal pressure adjustable even during gameplay, traveling from very gentle to ultra-heavy sensitivity. This can be delivered thanks to integrating the load cell directly into the pedal arm that measures the pressure on the pedal arm itself. So yes, Worth the $140 you need to add this to your simracing system.
