I'm not sure how many use the T500 here, I only know of one (Hi Stefan), but there is a load cell brake mod available for the T500 pedals.  It's made by John Bodin and his site just went active for taking orders today.  He is shipping internationally.  It's a plug and play installation without any need for modification to the pedals.  So it won't void any warranties.

Here is a thread at Inside Sim Racing on the load cell mod.

More importantly, here is John's site for placing an order.

Hi Stefan,

I received my load cell mod this last Saturday.  Install is very simple and took all of few minutes.  It works great.  I've never used a load cell before, so it does take a little time to get used to, but after an hour or so I was right on pace of my times.  I'm hoping to get some time for driving today and see if I start setting some new personal best times.  In short, I am very happy with this product.

John sold out his first batch of load cell mods in under 8 hours.  I was lucky to have checked his site when I did because he was sold out in less than an hour after I placed my order. A lot of people have been waiting for this to become available.  He has said (last week) he has already ordered more parts and will have more ready to ship in 2 weeks.  He is also going to make a 15 kg load cell to go along with the 35 kg one.  So if anyone is interested, be patient because he's going to continue to make more.  There is a "notify me when more become avialable" area on his website.

Dave
