These could be a good alternative. Aussie made  :biggrin: and personally I like the look of these more and they are still customisable etc

Ehr.. Jarkko?   you can mod these easily you say?

Did i just see a rubber band going from the clutch pedal.. and one on the throttle?

make sure you talk to the mailman for spare rubberbands m8

Also.. the first pics you posted from the website where the clean ones.. where you couldn't see anything.. lol in other words, no wires running from the middle ?! of the box?

Ah well... if you got em m8, show us a pic of the adjustability of them.. say like how far forward you can let the pedals fall.
So far the best modeled pedals are those of the saitek r440.... they are floating in mid-air instead of comin out of  the floor.

cant drive em now anyways... think i'm a bit grumpy over that.. forgive me


Woof ~ woof

hope my foot can touch the clutch in the morning tho... outch

Im sure the range on pedals is well enough :)
theres stoppers in the both ends, you can move the brake pedals also horizontally where you want it... and its easy to add different "footprints" or what ever the hell its called in english..
The rubber bands or springs are just what you prefer, easy to change... ill get spares and alternatives too.. oh and elessar i cant see them pedals adjusting much :P
id like the shifter though.. (well actually not, id prefer Simgear one... or Thomas enterprises speed shifter.. a good shifter thats meant to be brutalized is the next purchase when i dare and have money next time to do such thing)

Not sure there is an English word Jarkks ... "Ah.. good retailer.. I'd like some of those rubber things you put on pedals"
"Certainly sir, you mean the...."
"Yes?..."
"Ehh... the .... sorry, we're right out of stock"

Picture Jarkko dressed in surgeons gown, Dremmel in one hand chainsaw in the other looking down at his new Finmotion pedals whispering "Now then my beauties.. let's see what can be improved... MUHAHAHA!"

(the last bit wasn't whispering... but you got that)

Payd on Friday and sent my address etc. they said theyll send them as soon as money is on their account... Heard nothing from them since, Sent email last night.. no reply yet...
I know its "extra" business for them among jobs but there should be time for some emails when you are doing such thing... well well... im waiting for them to contact before judging any further.. but im feeling bit... MDK atm.

there is normally a reasonable explanation for everything ! and hope you get your pedals or confirmation from them soon.

on a lighter note, i bought hard luggage from a bmw garage in germany using ebay and i was getting a bit pissed at them, very long story anyway, managed to find the e-mail address of the car section of the said garage and sent them an e-mail in english and german, explaining what the problem was and also asking them to walk over to the motorcycle section and smack someone in the mouth, well it made me feel better and did get things moving.

fingers crossed for you

"Stop! oh yes wait a minute Mr Postman,
Wa-a-a-a-it Mr Postman...

Please Mr Postman look and see
If there's some pedals in your bag for me
Why is it taking such a long time
For me to get them and play on-line?

The must be a box today
from Finnmotion so far away
If i don't get them in just a bit
out comes my chainsaw and I'm going Ape-shit!"
