Ive never used a load cell brake pedal. maybe it fixes this issue,
the differences between sim braking and real braking are
1. no feel for the point of maximum braking so you can get better lap times by braking at say 80-90%
2. the pedal travel is too long
3. if you get to the point of resistance you lock up the brakes in sim
4. sims lock the brakes too easily in general so you have to be gentle squeezing on the brakes.
5. you typically have to have some throttle even under braking to get the best lap times.
1. short travel from 1% braking to 100% braking
2. at maximum braking you are basically standing on the brake!
3. the onset of full braking is very quick, sometimes as quickly as you can do it short of just jamming the brakes if the tires are new, and the track is hot.
4. maximum braking feels like pushing your foot against a wall as hard as you can
5. you dont use throttle under braking to balance the car as you would in a sim.
