Logitech G29 Mods

I have been an avid sim racer for several years. Whooping and drifting around the track, constantly looking for improvement, perfection and faster lap times. I did this for many years with my trusty Logitech G29 wheel on my Playstation Before I made the switch to the Fanatec DD2.

I was always very happy with my Logitech sim racing wheel. However, it does look somewhat 'boring'. And that's where I found something really cool: G29 Logitech Mods!

In this article, you'll find some super cool - and affordable - Logitech G29 mods for your Logitech G29. Here you can think of:

  1. GT Wheel
  2. F1 wheel
  3. Gear shifter mod
  4. Brake pedal mod

Logitech G29

1. Logitech G29 GT wheel

As mentioned, I am quite satisfied with my G29. Although this one feels a bit 'boring'. And since I love DIY projects, I knew there would be a market for DIY projects and mods for this wheel.

I therefore started looking pretty quickly for a more realistic look with better grips for a better driving experience and grip. This without immediately having to switch to a more hardcore sim racing wheel, such as a Fanatec, for example.

Soon I came across MVHstudios, an avid industrial designer, that your Logitech G29 (or Logitech G920 or G923) stuur omtovert tot een super gaaf en realistisch F1 of GT stuur. En dit alles met behoudt van de originele garantie. Wow, dit moet ik hebben dacht ik! 🙂

This sim racing wheel is completely handmade and printed of exceptionally good quality. And all at a very reasonable price. For just £93.00, you will receive an insane upgrade for your Logitech wheel!

I myself went for the Logitech G29 GT wheel, since I race more in GT cars myself I went for the Logitech G29 GT wheel. A choice I have not regretted to this day and really enjoy! Especially in combination with the magnetic shifters (homemade and printed) makes this a very solid and cool racing experience.

GT edition

There are several editions (manufacturers) to choose from, each with corresponding stickers, logos in the centre and button labels that you can apply yourself to suit your needs. For instance, you can choose from: Mercedes, Mclaren, Ferrari, RedBull, Audi, Porsche and the standard or unbranded (red or black) edition. I personally went for the Porsche variant, which I am very happy with!

Standard Red or Black Editions do not include logos, emblems or labels. Red and Black are standard at no extra cost to the base price. All other editions add GBP 10 to the base price.

Design and functionalities

The wheel and grips are designed to closely match the look and feel of GT steering wheels, while retaining the full functionality of the Logitech buttons, dials and D-pad. The grips are ergonomically shaped and work well with and without gloves. The back of the wheel has an additional bracket that adds to its overall stiffness and rigidity, making it about as stiff but lighter than the original rim (290mm). The wheel comes complete and fully assembled, all you have to do is mount it to your Logitech handlebars. The handlebar is fully customisable. So you can choose between:

Handle

Finally, you can also customise the handlebar grips yourself. For instance, you can choose from three grip options:

  • Hand-covered, black, class A goat suede with a thickness of 0.9 mm
  • Hand-covered, black, class A smooth sheepskin leather with a thickness of 0.9 mm
  • Black, PLA with a highly grippy wood grain pattern (included in base price)

2. Logitech G29 F1 wheel

F1 edition

Do you play more open wheel / formula games, such as, for example F1 23, then the F1 edition is more suited to you. As with the GT edition, there are several editions to choose from, each with their corresponding stickers, logos in the centre and button labels that you can apply yourself to suit your needs. Again, the standard Red or Black Editions do not include logos, emblems or labels and come at no extra cost.

If you opt for the F1 edition, you can choose from: standard (red/black), Mercedes AMG, Mercedes Hamilton, RedBull, Ferrari & Mclaren.

Installation and other requirements

The install of racing wheels is very easy and only takes a few minutes. The big advantage of this Logitech G29 wheel mod is that you keep the original warranty.

Should you have other wishes, for both the GT and F1 editions. Everything is possible and fully customisable the way you want! All you have to do is indicate it and Mark (MVH Studios) will make it for you.

This is how to turn your 'boring' Logitech wheel into your own and unique F1 or GT variant! Check out his Instagram account for the possibilities. It's really, really cool!

3. Logitech G29 Mods: Gear Shifter Mod (3D print)

Another great addition to your G29 handlebar is a 3D printed magnetic gear/paddle shifter mod. Like the GT or F1 wheel, you can also buy this mod from MVHstudios or 3DRAP. Another option - which I chose myself - is to make them myself using a 3D printer. At Thingiverse are a number of free downloadable 3D models!

This DIY magnetic gear shifter mod is a great addition for your Logitech racing wheel and provides a better and more realistic shifting feel with more tactical feedback while shifting up or down. This is an easy upgrade to install and fully reversible.

4. Logitech G29 Pedal Mod

This is personally one of my favourite mods. Any Logitech user will recognise the frustration around braking. The Logitech braking system is progressive, meaning you experience more tension towards the end. The downside of this system is that you have to apply extra force at the end to brake harder. This is because the spring that is standard in the brake pedal is quite hefty and long, resulting in a longer 'pedal travel'. You want to keep this distance as small as possible so that you can apply maximum force to your brake pedal with as little movement as possible. To solve this issue, there are two different mods:

  • The first option is to get a new spring and rubber (from, say, a 3DRAP) to add
  • A second, slightly more expensive option, is the TrueBrake Mod upgrade

TrueBrake Load Cell Mod

TrueBrake is an upgrade for your Logitech brake pedal that provides a more realistic braking feel. You feel the brake load / load and not the small pedal movements. This provides a very realistic experience that comes close to a load cell brake pedal, such as the Fanatec. It is the most convenient and cost-effective brake pedal Logitech mod available for your Logitech brake pedal. TrueBrake fits perfectly into your Logitech pedal set and all at a very reasonable price!

Pedal Rumble Mod

Want even more experience while braking? Then check out the pedal rumble mod op Etsy. Deze mod zorgt voor extra trillingen in je pedaal voor nóg meer beleving! Deze mod is ook voor jouw Logitech een absolute aanrader 🙂

Logitech G29 mods: a smart and low-budget choice

I hope I have been able to enthuse you with the above mods. The upgrade possibilities of a standard Logitech G29 are endless and timeless.

Want to go low-budget sim racing? Then a Logitech steering wheel with some mods is an excellent choice for years of sim racing fun! Do you want more of a high-end and professional racing wheel? Then choose, for example Fanatec or Moza Racing.
