Today we continue our series on building a budget sim racing cockpit as we take a detailed look at the FANATEC CSL Elite Pedals Loadcell Kit to see how it’s installed, how to adjust the loadcell spring rate, and most importantly of all, if it’s a worthwhile upgrade over the basic CSL Elite pedals.

We begin by discussing the advantages of a Loadcell when compared to a traditional potentiometer style brake, then discuss some things to be aware of in regards to price when buying CSL Pedals. Next we move on to the included control module and some differences from the control module included with the base level CSL Elite Pedals. Then we move on to the installation and a more detailed look at how to adjust the load cell spring rate. Finally we take the newly upgraded pedals for a spin in F1 2019 and RaceRoom to see how they go!
