hi guys, I have an issue that has me stumped. I have been trying to wire up a hand brake on my Logitech G27 by following a few guides like the one i have linked below: i have soldered the board twice and backpedaled out after the software driver failed to detect the controller correctly in windows. removing the mod restored the system to a working condition. One thing that i'm not entirely sure of is how the hand brake needs to get wired up on its side and I'm not finding many resources to guide me on that subject. I'm currently trying to use the led light switch that is on the hand brake. the switch is actuated when the brake is pulled to create a circuit. I connected the wires to opposing sides. I then ran one side of the switch to each solder point on the board outlined in the video above. here is a picture of the hand brake led light switch i tried to wire up for the mod. The brake is currently in a down position, however if pulled the screw makes contact with the other side of the switch completing the circuit. FYI, the hand brake I am trying to use was pulled out of a scrap yard from a Volvo s60. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
i have been very busy in the last couple of months designing and building my diy projects. all of these mods work on both consoles and pc, thay are powered by arduino. so no keyboard hack. and if you are familiar with arduino you can update according to your own taste. lets begin a couple of manths back i posted an e-brake build, here http://www.isrtv.com/forums/topic/21747-do-it-yourself-sequential-and-e-brake-builds/#comment-196485 then i got busy with other projects. like, DIY buuton box 5 parts.. but in the process ive come up with probably the best DIY sequential shifter ever made. lol. with a budget just below $100. exellnt quality,buils and professional look. anyway enough talk lets lets begin with the do it yourself button box and work our way to the current and latest build. please follow me at facebook here https://www.facebook.com/clos27reyes/ for early picks and sneak peak videos. and twitter here https://twitter.com/Clos27Reyes again for quick updates to projects and thoughts on new builds. thrustmaster wheel L3, R3 mod, aviation plug port diy pro build Buttonnbox button box pre build (undertaking) button box build part 5 of 5 immediately following the button box build jumped into a new build future project and builds progress on sequential shifter build sequential shifter pre build test be sure to subscribe on youtube to get notification of 1st part of sequntial shifter build being published today 9/26 @ 2pm eastern
Hi fellas, this 'ere be me first post, hopefully of many. So I'm building an MDF cockpit for my G29, something like the Ricmotech or the R-Pod Mk.2. The fabrication of it is like 80% done, I'm finishing work on the shifter pod/centre console now. Then it's just prepping, painting, vinyling and upholstering. I really would like a decent vertical handbrake I can mount on it. Currently using a joystick, and it's a bit wobbly etc etc. Ideally I'd go out and get one of the incredible DSD handbrakes with a pressure transducer. It's £300/$425 though, and I've not got the money for that, or the electronics skills to make one. I was looking at the CS handbrake, but again, it's £100+ with another £30 odd for the adapter (if you can find one in the UK...) So. My idea is to take a cheap Chinese eBay hydro handbrake (like this) and hook up the guts of this joystick with a hefty spring inside to make an axis/travel based handbrake. I appreciate the pull and feel won't be the same as a hydro, but hopefully it'll a good deal cheaper and less complex, while having the ergonomics and sturdiness of one. Anyone done anything like this and got any tips? Or a better way of doing it that's under like £100 (and not going to require me to have payed too much attention in science or electronics at school!!) Cheers guys -Barnabro
