Here’s everything you need to know about the Next Level Racing F-GT Elite and motion platform bundle…
The F-GT Elite and motion platform bundle hands you an affordable, commercial-grade motion simulator
You could easily spend $50K+ for a full motion racing cockpit like this.
But the Next Level Racing F-GT Elite racing cockpit, Motion Platform V3 and Traction Plus Platform comes in at a relatively affordable price. Especially when you consider what’s on offer here.
The F-GT Elite is Next Level Racing’s top-of-the line aluminium profile racing cockpit and is easily one of the best quality, feature packed racing cockpits on the market today.
Your jaw will drop from the moment you see your full F-GT Elite cockpit in the flesh. The top-spec chassis is crafted from high-end, carbon grey 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, front mount wheel deck and pedal deck you’ve got an ES1 fixed back racing seat with harness, built-in seat slider system, seat brackets, height adjustable shock absorption feet, ButtKicker Gamer 2 adaptor, cable management clips, Motion Platform V3 adaptors, ratchet tool & more.
Get ready for the most exciting and immersive simulation experience EVER
The combination of the Motion Platform V3 and Traction Plus hands you one of the most realistic, immersive and downright can’t-wipe-the-smile-off-your-face simulation experiences around.
The Motion Platform V3 moves the seat of your cockpit, while the Traction Plus moves and shifts your entire cockpit. You’ll feel sway, surge, roll, pitch, understeer and front traction loss (critical feature usually only experience in 6dof motion platforms), oversteer and rear traction loss, power slides and drifting and partial heave.
Plus, you’ll also feel vehicle and road effects such as road surface, bumps, wheel lock/spin, gear changes etc and shunting effects (to feel side impact contact from opponents/wall). There are few consumer-based motion set-ups that can provide this type of fidelity and g-forces. You’re going to love these motion platforms every time you take a seat.
This type of simulation technology is usually only ever seen in professional Formula 1 racing teams with budgets in the hundreds of millions of dollars.
Let’s cover off more details on both motion platforms in this bundle now…
The Motion Platform V3 is a European made, professional platform designed in collaboration with world leading commercial motion engineers
It’s the ONLY platform of its kind in Australia and is specifically designed to move the sear of your racing or flight cockpit like some of the most advanced, high-end motion simulators out there including products from CXC Simulations.
The Motion Platform V3 boasts fast, yet smooth realistic movements using professional motion cueing profiles and software engine. Using true in-game feedback and realistic vehicle telemetry information, you’ll feel road bumps, road texture, vibrations, gear changes, collisions, horizontal rubs and more. The end result is that you’ll feel the same g-forces you would in a REAL race car.
That’s why Darin Gangi from Inside Sim Racing LOVES the Motion Platform V3. He says: “It really enhances the experience… Live for Speed, it felt fricking great. iRacing, it felt great. F1 2015, I loved it!”
Lee Mather from Codemasters was blown away by the quality of the Motion Platform: “I can’t get over the quality of the kit, especially when you consider the price point. That’s a seriously accessible consumer unit.”
The Traction Plus platform hands you super-realistic racing motion that will give you goosebumps
The Traction Plus Motion Platform, in combination with the Motion Platform V3 moves your whole cockpit and delivers both understeer and oversteer in the most realistic and precise way possible.
Based on feedback from professional drivers during product development, the understeer component of a motion platform which is usually only found in 6DOF systems is absolutely critical in accurately and precisely simulating the vehicle.
Feeling both understeer and oversteer the platform can be used effectively for driver/racer training particularly for cornering and rally. You actually FEEL what is happening with both rear and front of the vehicle.
Even the differences between rear wheel drive, front wheel drive and all-wheel drive vehicles can be felt with the precise feedback delivered through the Traction Plus platform.
Combined with the Motion Platform V3, you've got a supremely accurate vehicle feedback system for front wheel lock up meaning you will feel vibration as well as the front of the vehicle sliding out of a corner when too much brake pressure is applied. (also applicable for rear wheel lock up depending on vehicle bias)
The Traction Plus combined with the Next Level Racing Motion Platform V3 provides incredible levels of vehicle feedback to the driver to feel exactly what the vehicle is doing by precisely delivering:
- Understeer and front traction loss – (critical feature usually only experienced in 6DOF motion platforms)
- Oversteer and rear traction loss
- Power slides and drifting
- Partial heave
- Vehicle and road effects such as road surface, bumps, wheel lock/spin, gear changes and more
- Shunting effects (to feel side impact contact from opponents/wall)
Incredible, life-like flight simulation that's as close to the real thing as you'll ever get
As with the Motion Platform V3 that has been used professional aviators including: airline, private, military, and flight training institutions and universities, the Traction Plus Platform can add further realism by allowing the pilot to experience the flight characteristics of the aircraft more realistically.
The Pitch and Roll axis simulation from the Motion Platform V3 is augmented with the
Traction Plus to provide the third axis of Yaw to generate an incredibly genuine sensation of flight.
The simulator also replicates the motions of landing gear operation, combat/cannon fire, ground movement, turbulence, and crosswind effects. It can be paired with augmented reality/VR units to create an unparalleled level of realism.
Smoother rudder operation can be trained effectively with the combination of yaw and pivot.
Whether it be for fun, training, or for professional development, the Traction Plus will surely be an important instrument for any aviators journey.
Unparalleled innovation & technology
The design, engineering and technology of the Traction Plus and Motion Platform V3 are completely ground-breaking.
Both platforms are designed and manufactured completely in Europe and powered by MotionSystems, the Traction Plus platform is a world class product.
Also keeping the home user in mind, painstaking engineering has been performed to not only set a benchmark in performance but also make sure both platforms are quiet and retain a small footprint.
Developed and engineered purely for simulation
The Traction Plus & Motion Platform V3 have been designed, engineered and manufactured to give the most realistic, immersive and accurate simulation experience and deliver a new benchmark in motion simulation experience.
These are not toys. These are products designed, engineered and manufactured from ground up purely for advanced simulation and professional applications to precisely deliver feedback to the driver or pilot.
Easy & fast assembly – direct bolt-on to the Next Level Racing F-GT Elite cockpit
The Motion Platform V3 and the Traction Plus are designed for almost anyone to assemble. Both platforms bolt directly onto the included Next Level Racing F-GT Elite racing cockpit.
Click & play platform manager software
Both platforms use the click and play Next Level Racing Platform Manager software.
This software uses telemetry data to give the most realistic and accurate profile cues. This is professional grade software developed by world leading motion engineers ensuring absolute precision in delivering feedback from the game, without lag, in real time.
Whilst being professional software it’s designed to be used by even a novice with simple to use dashboard to start your game and being able to change all settings at a click of a button.
For those users that like to get more hands on, you can customise settings for each profile.

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’s lots of 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.
First up, we’ve got a policy here at Gamer Gear Direct we like to call…
