So I have be looking at doing this for a long time but with big mods that have not been done before comes alot of risk especially anything that runs on electricity.
I have spent alot of time planing this on paper and in theory it should work yes it will be alot of work and possibly alot of money but I just want to try something different
Why am i looking at doing this mod well on my G27 I run what is known as a force feed back mod as seen in link below but mine is more powerful than the one shown in video.
Issue's i started to face from this FFB mod was the extra power started to find weak spots in G27 mainly the gear drive below is list of damaged wheels that have now become donation wheels
2x wheels blow gear drive
3x wheels cooked electrical boards
1x wheel unknown issue
2x wheels blown electric motors
Theses wheels will be used as parts for the experiment the first prototype time frame is unknown
I will be using similar system to CSW and will be using the same motors as CSW due to the fact i don't really want people trying this some parts i won't be identifying certain information.
This mod will have very slow progress and won't be done in a week so I will only post info here as I go but i must express it will be slow process due to work and the fact this kind of mod its better to take your time this is no small task I have spent 6 months just planing this on paper and sourcing parts I think will be necessary to complete this conversion.
Fitting this inside the G27 plastic cover
Computer boards ability to process the mod
Fitting the FFB mod back on
General wheel operation if it works
Final thoughts I do have some concerns about this actually working but if you don't try you will never know when i run the first test for this it will be tested on dummy PC not my gaming PC if mod is successful no I will NOT be selling it or giving finer details on how to do this yourself
I have spent a very long time poking around inside G27's and im pretty familiar with them I have alot of worn out G27's which give's me the ability to try this at home.
If i die trying this i regret nothing and it was all in the name of sim racing science (joke)
I CAN NOT EXPRESS THIS ENOUGH DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING
