Finish first with the Next Level Racing F-GT Elite 160 racing simulator cockpit
The F-GT Elite 160 is Next Level Racing’s range-topping aluminium profile racing cockpit. It’s easily one of the best quality, feature packed racing simulator cockpits on the market today.
Your jaw will drop from the moment you see your full F-GT Elite 160 cockpit in the flesh. The top-spec chassis is crafted from high-end, 160mm x 40mm black extruded aluminium. All core components including the wheel, pedal and shifter/handbrake mount are made from laser cut carbon steel and pre-drilled for all popular steering wheels, pedals and shifters.
This is a seriously feature-packed, premium rig. On top of the flex-free wheel and pedal mounts you’ve got a built-in seat slider system, seat brackets, height adjustable shock absorption feet, ButtKicker adaptor, cable management clips, Motion Platform V3 adaptors, ratchet tool & more
The F-GT Elite 160 racing cockpit is backed by a one-year warranty. More details below. First, let’s cover off all the incredible features packed into the Next Level Racing F-GT Elite racing cockpit.

Constructed from premium extruded aluminium profile
Extruded aluminium is extremely strong yet lightweight. It’s the perfect material to build a rugged sim rig. Unlike some of the cheaper sim rigs on the market, a profile cockpit won’t bend or flex – even if you’re running the most powerful, torque-heavy direct drive wheel.
The F-GT Elite features a premium thick-walled profile and a custom 100mm x 40mm profile for the base of the cockpit, with a total weight of 53kg. This custom shape of the base profile provides extra strength and refined aesthetics.
The post anodized carbon grey profile is achieved by a chemical balance and anodizing process that not only looks visually stunning but also provides a scratch resistant finish compared to your typical black profile that is prone to scratching. The premium post anodizing process means that even the ends of the profiles and holes are anodized for visual perfection as well as long term protection. The post anodizing process as a last step also prevents having sharp shavings/edging ensuring safe setup of your new cockpit.
This rig will take anything you throw at it. It’s fully compatible with all the big brand peripherals including Thrustmaster, Simagic, Simucube, Logitech, Fanatec and more.
Flex-free, fully adjustable, wheel and pedal mounts
There are zero compromises when it comes to the F-GT Elite. The wheel mount is 100% flex-free. You can choose from the universal wheel mount that’s perfect for all Thrustmaster, Fanatec and Logitech wheelbases, or the front and side mount that’s suited to most direct drive wheelbases including Simagic., Simucube and Fanatec.
Either way, the wheel mount is both angle and height adjustable. This makes it super-easy for you to find your optimum wheel position.
Like the wheel mount the pedal mount is also flex-free, plus angle and height adjustable. The pedal mount is compatible with all racing pedals (even load cell and hydraulic pedals) that include a baseplate. Pedal sets from brands like Fanatec, Simagic, BJ SimRacing, Thrustmaster, Meca and more will bolt on with ease.
The sliding pedal plates are designed to provide easy and quick distance adjustments for pedals. Equipped with 2 slotted 5mm carbon steel pedal plates with double precision folds, you’ve got supreme pedal rigidity and straightforward compatibility. The pedal tray area is designed to offer more angle, height and distance adjustments to accommodate for a wider range of driving positions. The laser etched markings on the aluminium profile assist with making accurate adjustments.
Packed to the brim with accessories
The F-GT Elite is oozing with add-ons and accessories. You’ve got an adjustable, carbon steel shifter/handbrake mount that bolts to the left or right side of your cockpit. This mount is compatible with all popular shifter and handbrake models. You can easily fit a shifter and handbrake side-by-side.
And that’s just the start.
Also included is a ButtKicker Gamer 2 adapter, seat slider, seat brackets (suitable for side mount racing seats), height adjustable shock absorbing feet, cable management clips, adaptors for the Motion Platform V3 and a ratchet tool to easily adjust your entire cockpit chassis.
Hybrid seating position
The beauty of the F-GT Elite is that you can quickly and easily alter the seat between specific racing positions such as GT and F1. This makes the F-GT Elite a true ‘hybrid’ cockpit. In fact, the fresh design gives you 98 adjustment options.
So, if you want to race like Ricciardo in his F1, just flick the F-GT Elite into the Formula 1 racing position.
Or if you want to tackle the El Condor rally track, high up in the Argentinian mountains, you change the F-GT Elite cockpit seat position to GT mode.
The Next Level Racing seat sliding system included with the F-GT Elite is designed to eliminate flex found in traditional seat sliders. The seat mounts are made from 5mm carbon steel and provide the rigidity sim racers need in a seat base.
Optional racing seat
Choose your seat from the options above. We’ve got plenty of seat options to choose from including the Next Level Racing ES1 and ERS1 seats. Or you can opt for a full-spec racing seat from Sparco.
As standard, each seat includes seat sliders and all the accessories you need to bolt the seat directly onto the F-GT Elite frame. All seats are made to the highest standard.
With a seat fitted the F-GT Elite rig can support racers up to 150kg and heights between 120cm and 210cm (4ft – 6ft 9 inches).
Compatible with the full Next Level Racing motion suite
The F-GT Elite is fully compatible with the Next Level Racing Motion Plus, Motion Platform V3 and the Traction Plus platform. You can turn the F-GT Elite into the ultimate motion cockpit with full 3 DOF motion.
With the Motion Plus and Traction Plus bolted to the F-GT Elite you’ll own one of the most immersive and realistic racing simulator cockpits on the planet!

Your order will usually arrive in 3 to 5 business days. Of course, this depends on where you’re located. If you live in a metro area, you can expect your order to arrive within 3 days.

How much is shipping?

A lot of items we sell include free shipping. If an item is labelled free shipping, you won’t pay a single cent for shipping.

No stress. If you’re not home, our couriers will drop your order off at the nearest depot or post office.

Hey what gives, it’s been more than a week and my order hasn’t arrived. Where is it?

If your tracking details don’t shed any light on where your order is, contact us on (03) 9961 0240 and we’ll help work out where your order is.
If you’ve clicked on this tab, you’re obviously looking for a reason or two on why you should shop for your gaming goodies at Gamer Gear Direct, rather than those other online stores.
And we’ll (not so) humbly say there are SEVEN reasons we think you should shop with us and not hand over your hard-earned cash at one of those big box retailers like Harvey Norman or JB Hi-Fi.
REASON #1: 100% customer satisfaction GUARANTEED (if you’re not happy then neither are we – simple as that)
We’ll bend over backwards to ensure you are 100% happy and satisfied with your order and our world-class customer service. We want you to rave about your experience with us to your friends and family.
But we know that’ll only happen if we treat every customer like you’re the most important customer in the world. And you are! Without you we wouldn’t be in this business. We’ve only got to where we are today by treating our customers to a high level of service that you’ll rarely find online.
We’ll literally bend over backwards to ensure your experience with us is one you’ll shout about to your neighbour or mates at work. See, we’re not one of those big box electronics stores with a multi-million marketing budget. Those companies treat you like a number. Because they can afford to! They’ve got money coming out of their ears.
We’re different. We’re a small Aussie owned and operated business. Every single potential customer that hits our website is precious to us (that includes you). So, again, we’ll do everything we can to make sure you’re over the moon with your Gamer Gear Direct shopping experience.
Do you think Harvey Norman can promise that kind of service?
Probably not. In fact, I’d bet my house they won’t. But look, you don’t have to take my word for it. Here’s what our customers are saying about us…
Ashley Woolnough says: ‘I want to say a huge thank you to Blake and the team at Gamer Gear Direct. The service has been absolutely impeccable from the moment I first looked at items to the moment they were delivered. I bothered Blake quite a bit, but nothing was too much trouble and he went above and beyond to help me. 5-star service’.
Luke H. had this to say: ‘Amazing, Excellent Service. I'm very impressed. Well informed staff and good quality selection of Sim Racing gear. Staff even went above and beyond to answer a query regarding whether a certain set of pedals would properly mount to a specific cockpit by testing it themselves on my behalf. Delivery is ridiculous fast and free. Less than 24 hour delivery to Sydney NSW which is impressive. Definitely my go to place for all future gear'.
And this from Brendan: ‘Hands down the best online supplier in Australia atm. Customer service is above an beyond any other Australian company. Blake is always happy to try an keep the customer as happy as possible an with the best deal. I will be back...a forever shop and first stop when hunting any sim upgrade.’
That’s not an exhaustive list, either. There are plenty more happy customer stories we could share with you. But let’s move on to reason number two…
REASON #2: Five-star customer support
We’re around to support you and help you out with your questions and queries between normal business hours (Mon to Fri, 9am to 5pm).
We understand a lot of our customers (like you) are busy individuals.
Sometimes, you’ve only got time to peruse our website when you’re sitting down on the couch, chilling out after a hard day at work (maybe with a cold beverage in hand).
If you need a hand with anything, or you’ve got a question. Just tap on the live chat widget (at the bottom right of screen), email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call on (03) 9961 0240.
REASON #3: Shop with confidence thanks to our 30 day return policy
The moment you buy anything (yes, anything!) from Gamer Gear Direct you’re automatically covered by our 30-day return policy.
Buy today and if your item is not performing as it should or is faulty just return inside those first 30 days, in 'as new' condition for a refund or exchange. Please note that our return policy does not cover 'change of mind' purchases.
On top of our 30-day return policy, you’re also covered by a manufacturers’ warranty. Every product we sell is covered by a MINIMUM 6-month warranty (most are covered by a 1 year or better warranty).
When you buy from us, you’re buying top quality, brand name products (no crap ‘grey import’ products here), that’ll do exactly what they say on the box.
You'll find more details on our return policy HERE.
REASON #4: We’re competitive on our prices. If you see a Gamer Gear Direct product cheaper online, contact us and we’ll see if we can work out a deal
That doesn’t mean we’ll always beat the competition on price. Some of the big-name stores bulk up big time on products. We’re still competitive, but may not have the margin to beat them.
That aside, our prices are easily some of the cheapest you’ll find online. Plus, when you bundle several items together, we’re more than happy to chat about a bundle discount
Hit us up and we’ll chat more about price (you can open the chat widget at the bottom right of screen and start a conversation).
REASON #5: Fast shipping Australia wide
When you’re shopping online, you want your order delivered fast, right? We understand. That’s why 99% of our orders are shipped within one to two business days from the time you order.
Your order will usually arrive at your doorstep within 3 to 5 business days from the day you ordered. Doesn’t matter whether you order a 50kg racing simulator cockpit or a mousepad, we’ll make sure you get your order in super quick time.
We use the fastest couriers in the country to make sure you get your order in record time.
You can track your order the entire time, too. As soon as your order is on the way we’ll send you an email with tracking details, so you can keep your eye on where your order is the entire time.
Of course, if you have any questions or queries about your order simply email or call us and we’ll help you in any way we can.
REASON #6: Every product from Gamer Gear Direct is covered by a manufacturer warranty
Nothing worse than buying something online and it’s faulty, right?
We feel you.
That’s exactly why every item we stock is covered by a minimum 6-month warranty.
If the product you ordered from us doesn’t work right, simply return it to us and we’ll get it fixed for you under warranty.
Or if we can’t have it fixed, we’ll provide you with a replacement item as soon as possible.
REASON #7: Safe and 100% secure checkout
Our shopping cart is fitted with SSL encryption.
What the hell does that mean, you ask?
Well, that simply means all your data is 100% secure when you shop on the Gamer Gear Direct website.
We don’t save or share any of your payment details. Nor are those precious details stored anywhere on our website.
So, there you have it. There are our 7 big reasons on why you should buy all your sim goodies from us and not the competition.
Remember, we are always happy to chat with you at any time. You can open a live chat (at bottom right of screen). Email us at email@example.com or give us a call on (03) 9961 0240.
Wow is this thing solid. Could stand a house on it and it won�t budge.
Fairly easy to build although definitely allow plenty of time for final setup
