GamerMuscle And The Fanatec CSL Elite Load Cell Kit

GamerMuscle reviews the CSL Elite Load Cell kit which adds a pressure sensitive brake pedal to the original Fanatec CSL Elite Pedal set.

The human body memorizes muscle tension much better than foot position. This is why all car brakes measure the pressure and not the travel. The Fanatec loadcell brake unit adds the third pedal to your CSL Elite Pedals. The former brake unit gets equipped with a new limiter pad and ​becomes the clutch pedal.

The pedal pressure sensitivity can be adjusted during gameplay in the wheel tuning menu from very gentle to ultra heavy. The proprietary load cell is integrated directly into the pedal arm and measures the pressure on the pedal arm itself. It cannot be more direct.

Pricing:

The CSL Elite Pedals Loadcell kit is available at the official Fanatec website for 139.95€ Incl. VAT
