    Looks like a promising set. I'm around 270, fingers crossed I won't have to wait too much longer!

    It's a slow process by all accounts - Also stories of some having to pay sales/shipping tax which I thought odd because it's a reward not a sale?

    Hopefully they’re addressing the issues Barry (SRG) raised. I’m a little bit annoyed people are being charged tax on them.

    Hopefully but I wouldn't be suprised if they don't. I wasnt aware about the tax thing, what's the deal with that!?

    Because they're shipping them internationally they've put a cost on the shipping info, people are then being charged import tax due to it being shipped from outside the EU.

    Has thrustmaster killed feel vrs pedals by releasing its own load cell pedals for £180? I cant see many people going feel vr over thrust master.

    I genuinely fear for the longevity of the new TM LC pedals, if the construction of the T3PA pedals are anything to go by, I've broken 2 where the pedal pivots, that area just dosnt seem to last. with the new ones using the same plastic construction around that area I hope it has been beefed up considerably, the forces being put through it with a LC brake pedal will be significantly more. Dont get me wrong I'm not sure the Feel pedals are the right solution either but i think I'd have more confidence in them.

    Aren't T3PA plasic construction though? Their new LC pedals look aluminium.

    the pedal arms are, the chassis it mounts to is plastic.

    **EDIT**
    On second look, it appears im incorrect. Brake pedal appears to have a seperate metal frame mount which is different to the throttle and clutch.
