Here’s everything you need to know about the Next Level Racing F-GT Elite aluminium racing cockpit…
The Next Level Racing F-GT Elite chassis is constructed from premium, 100mm x 40mm extruded aluminium profile. This is a super rigid racing cockpit designed for elite sim racers
Extruded aluminium is extremely strong and rigid 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 NLR 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.
Next Level Racing are so confident in the quality of the F-GT Elite racing simulator cockpit, they’ve stamped it with a 1 year warranty.
Flex-free, fully adjustable, wheel and pedal mounts
There are zero compromises when it comes to the F-GT Elite. The universal wheel mount is 100% flex-free. It's the perfect You can choose from the universal wheel mount that’s perfect for all Thrustmaster, Fanatec and Logitech, bottom-mount wheelbases. 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 racing cockpit 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.
Multiple racing positions – go from GT to F1 seating position within minutes
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.
Premium, Next Level Racing ES1 racing seat (optional)
After extensive research on ergonomics and strength, the ES1 Seat focuses on giving you an advantage over your competition. Get the comfort for long endurance races, the support for precision braking, and the strength for users with heavy load pedals.
By introducing a fixed-back single-piece seat, the ES1 Seat solves potential flex otherwise experienced with conventional reclining seats.

The ES1 Seat is designed to improve the sim racing experience in ergonomics and also strength to resolve the twisting commonly experienced in other conventional seats on the market.

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.

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!’

It's good but..
Overall cockpit is sturdy and adjustable. You can see the overall thought NRL has put in this product, however, it does not come without flaws such as:
- You cannot attach both Fanatec Shifter 1.5 + Handbrake in the shifter mount, there isn't any space to plug the handbrake cable in. If you revert the handle then the lever becomes almost unreachable. I have contacted support for this and they just told me to find a DIY solution.
- Seat is comfortable BUT needs abit more head cushioning. The cushioning is also stuck on, parts of it are not fully stuck on so it makes a sticking sound when you push onto it.
- Instructions to screw on x4 M8 bolts onto the rig with washer for the shifter support is incorrect, with washers the screws are just not long enough to reach the T-Nuts.
That said I am happy with the rig. Definitely sturdy but it is just something for people who are looking to purchase this rig to note.
