I have a nice Thrustmaster wheel, the TX RW leather edition. The FF works very well, better that any other wheels I've had but the pedal set is the standard fair with mechanical potentiometers and no load cell. It comes with a rubber cone/bumper mod to be added that simulates a load cell. It's really not bad and better than having a pedal with no resistance at all. This weekend I upgraded to the Thrustmaster T-LCM Pedals and  a TH8A Shifter. The pedals have a load cell and hall effect sensors. Both items appear to be well made. It's going to take some time to get used to them especially the shifter.

I can only confirm that the TH8A is built well and works great, and maybe some day I'll get the T-LCM Pedals.

I have that shifter too and it's great. I have load cell brakes and can't imagine not using them.

I use the "PerfectPedal" - http://www.perfectpedal.com/

which is used with the Logitech pedals.

It's also great, using a hydraulic cylinder to put force on a load cell. I'd recommend it, except I suspect they don't have support any more. You can adjust the stiffness of the pedal by adding brake fluid, but there are no instructions. I emailed them twice and never got a reply. I figured it out anyway though.

That "PerfectPedal" sounds like it would work quite well. Too bad it's only for the G25/27.
