The F-GT Elite and Motion Platform V3 bundle is a super-affordable entry point into a first-class, commercial-grade motion simulator – easy to install
You could easily spend $20K+ for a full motion racing cockpit like this. But the Next Level Racing F-GT Elite racing cockpit and Motion Platform V3 comes in at an affordable price so that any sim racer can now enjoy the immersion and realism of motion.
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.
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 ES1 seat of the F-GT Elite cockpit. Just 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 F-GT Elite racing cockpit is fully compatible with all the big-name wheel and pedal brands – PERFECT for direct drive wheels
The F-GT Elite wheel, pedal and shifter mounts are all pre-drilled for the most popular electronics brands like Fanatec, Thrustmaster, Logitech and more.

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.
If you live outside a metro area, you order will usually take a little longer to arrive. We recommend you allow 5 business days for your order to arrive.

How much is shipping?

Shipping is calculated in checkout. Simply fill in your address details and our shipping calculator will show the final shipping cost.
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.
What if I’m not home when my order arrives?
No stress. If you’re not home, our couriers will drop your order off at the nearest depot or post office.
Contact details will be left at your door or in your mailbox so you can organise redelivery.
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) 9000 0545 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’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…
100% customer happiness guaranteed (we mean it!)
OK, so the above title might sound a little corny to you, but it’s true.
We’ll bend over backwards to ensure you are 100% happy and satisfied with everything you buy from us.
We want you to tell your friends and family about your experience with us (and hopefully that’ll mean they visit our website, too).
And the only way you’re going to do that is when you’re happy with our service, right?
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 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.
But look, you don’t have to take our word for 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’.
Joe Platt had this to say: ‘Just want to say how awesome the gaming chair is that we bought. Amazing quality, helpful service and the fastest delivery of an online purchase. Arrived Next Day!’
And this from B. Richardson: ‘Purchased an Audeze headset and it arrived inside two days. Thanks for the fast shipping and great service!’
That’s not an exhaustive list, either. There are plenty more happy customer stories we could share with you.
But let’s move on…
Five-star customer support. We’re just an email, phone call or live chat away. We’re here to help you day or night
‘Officially’ 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).
But just between us…we’re pretty much here to help you out around the clock, 7 days a week.
We don’t switch off. For example, it’s not unusual for one of our team to be helping a customer with a shipping request at 9pm at night.
If you need a hand with anything just email us, call (03) 9000 0545 or open the live chat function and we’ll help you in any way we can.
