The first point I would like to make is that my opinion is one from a very specific perspective, mine. It's not right and it's not wrong, it's an opinion, but I think that it might make some people who are thinking about shelling out for a load cell consider their own needs. Secondly, I realise that a load cell pedal replicates the feel of the brake pedal in a normal car more closely than a sprung loaded pedal linked to a potentiometer. Therefore, for a person who desires the closes replication of real life driving they can achieve with their virtual set up I imagine that a load cell pedal is highly desirable. However, for those for whom such reality is not a major issue, I think that the potentiometer offers advantages over the load cell. The throttle pedal on most cars works against a sprung loaded mechanism, being quite light and long in movement. This arrangement gives admirable control over the amount of power being applied to the driving wheels, even when the variability of engine revs and gear ranges are taken into account. I use an ancient G25 wheel and the pedals it originally came with. They have not been modified. The brake is quite light and has a long, not particularly dampened, movement. I have used zero ABS for the past two years or so, and I honestly can't imagine any pedal allowing me better control over the brakes. It works very much like a throttle in reverse, I push the pedal further, and it applies more force retarding the wheels, and I can change the extent to which I am pushing it quite finely. On the other hand, if I was having to apply 10, 20 or 25kg of force to a pedal in order to make it work I think I would struggle to modulate it so accurately. I understand why, in a real car, there would be issues with a light brake pedal, because the momentum of a person's leg under deceleration would effect the amount of brake force being applied. It is possible to imagine, in an extreme case, someone having to apply considerable force to retract their foot in order to counter that momentum. However, in the virtual world that is not an issue, and I can't see any good reason for me, personally, to go for a load cell brake. Cheers, Zo.
