I have 1 question, isn't the plastic part attached to the original boot? How did you remove it?
I removed it it with my hands. I just pulled it out.
Oh ok, I am about to buy a second hand g25 shifter, the knob and the leather is in mediocre condition but I have no problem fixing that. So the plastic part comes off without much effort, right? Also what tool did you use to cut holes on the boot?
I used a hole tongs but I think you can use a nail and a hammer to punch holes in it.
Btw. there are some cuts around the plastic boot, you have to do some cuts in the new boot too ^^
I installed the new shifter knob and boot but I can't really shift into the 1st, 3rd and 5th gear. It's not really locking like in the 2nd 4th and 6th.
When I try to shift in the 5th gear, it's jumping over in neutral. Not every time but very often.
I really hope you or somebody else can help me with this problem.
I'm not sure what the issue is. The shift knob and boot are all cosmetic, they don't touch or affect the shift mechanism itself.
Almost two years in of your Playseat challenge/G29 combo how is it going?? still loving it?? anything broke?? still comfortable??
asking because I'm about to buy the same set up
Yep, still loving it and everything is still going strong. Haven't had any issues with anything breaking or falling apart. Definitely recommend the setup.
Excellent!!! Thanks for the response!!!
I got the G29, ordering the chair!
What probably happened, is that you cut the boot too short. When you shift, it stops the stick because its stretched out. When installing you should always put the stick in 1st gear and cut the boot so it fits the length.
Thanks for the reply but I think I almost cut it too long. Someday I will try to fix it lol.
Just modded mine. Thanks for the tips!!
Looking great. Well done :-)
I have the same setup Playseat and Logitech G29, but dident buy a shifter yet. Been thinking about it for some time, just not sure wich route is best to go.
How did you attach the gearshifter to the playseat challenge ?
You have to buy an attachment for the Playseat. It costs 50€.
This looks great so I decided to get the knob and the boot but I have a couple questions. First, do you know, in inches, roughly how much you trimmed the boot? Second, I would like to order the part from Italy but are the plastic parts the ones you have to grease a lot or the carbon or both (website is a bit confusing on this)? Also, they do have a new updated version 3 mod that they say is much better.
I know you don't have any experience with this but would you buy this over your initial purchase if given the chance?
One more thing, they now have on Amazon what *looks* like the same adapter pieces but the only review on there the person says it is flimsy and doesn't fit. Not sure if that's correct or if they didn't know how to install it. Can you take a peek and tell me what you think?
Sorry for all the questions but I'd really like to get this right the first time. I really appreciate it!
I got the OpenWheeler racing chair/stand in red/black so I got the shifter knob in red too, lol.
Do you think this is necessary? I didn't buy it because I've heard a lot of people like the way the pedal feels out of the box, others think it needs more resistance. I guess I'll just have to see for myself once I open all this stuff for Christmas (wife won't let me do anything with it before that).
Just installed a 3drap adapter, shifter boot and knob
And I bought this:
To improve the shift feel/force. Seemed like a significantly more robust/thought out design than the 3DRap stuff; and it was much cheaper.
Took a few weeks to ship, but the installation was pretty easy and it won't disintegrate with use like the 3DRap one does.
That's the shift knob. One with red stitching doesn't seem to be available anymore.
