On initial depression - very slight - there I can hear slight movement rattle left to right which is really off putting. Is this normal? I've only recently had these.
Are you saying the pedal is physically moving or something is making noise? Could you upload a video? Also have you verified all screws are securely tightened?
Mine also has slight left to right play in the pedal despite 100% tightening of the bolt and nut. I assumed this was just normal.
I also had a slight movement in the lc pedal but i got two thin plastic rings from simracingshop.es (for free) that solved the problem.
I also bought two hall sensors from him to replace the 'soon to fail' potentiometers. Works perfectly!
