There will be a little bit of an adjustment period as you get used to feel of the belt drive, but I'm sure it will come to you.  Some fine tuning of your settings will help.  I seem to remember it took me about a week to adjust to the new feel and get up to speed with my G25 times.

I fired up the PC and wheel yesterday for some laps but the gas pedal had stopped working.
So back to desktop and the TM T300 control panel, same result...no gas pedal.
Turned everything off and back on still the same.
I did a bit google an discovered others having the same or similar problems with this pedal set.

First instinct was return the item to the vendor but curiosity got the better of me, so risking my warranty I opened up the pedals.

Inside is nothing amazing. Two pots with geared pinion running against a rack on the pedals.
The pinions have a blank area with no teeth and the one on the gas pedal was in a position where it could not mesh with the rack.
I moved it a couple of teeth and re-assembled. Now it works again.

I think this pedal set is the weak part of the T300RS package. The plastic feels flimsy, the pedals are light and no where near the build quality of the G25 pedal set. But the wheel seems solid and well made.

Having looked inside the T300RS pedal set I think it would be possible to adapt the G25 pedals to work with the T300 wheel. I might have a go especially if I get more problems with these pedals.

Check these out.

The Bodin adapter says it's not in stock, but I've seen others state that if you contact John Bodin through his site and request the adapter, that he'll make one for you if he has the components available.  He makes quality stuff as I have had his load cell brake mod for the Thrustmaster pedals for several years now.

Thanks for the links. The Bodin adaptor looks perfect and a simple solution.

Looks like this may be the same guy

Edit : TM are making one for a tenner.

Almost like saying "we know our pedals are bad" :D

Edit : Ordered the TM adaptor for a tenner so I can use my G25 pedals
