Here's everything you need to know about the Next Level Racing F-GT Elite & Simagic Alpha racing simulator bundle…
The Next Level Racing F-GT Elite chassis is constructed from premium, 100mm x 40mm extruded aluminium profile
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 wheel mount is 100% flex-free. The front mount wheel deck included here is compatible with direct drive wheelbases from Simucube, Simagic, Fanatec, Mige, VRS, Kollmorgen and more. 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.
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.
Includes Next Level Racing ES1 racing seat
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. By using a contour-shaped seat, you can enjoy a more 'fitted' feel with maximum comfort. 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.
Manufactured using a custom-tooled 5 axis rotational molding process to ensure material consistency, providing maximum rigidity and strength. By using premium suede covering, it provides durability and added grip to meet the demand of every sim racer. Premium brass mounting hardware locations create versatility for various mounting configurations including ButtKickers, seat belts, and other haptic technologies. Combining the Next Level Racing seat bracket with the ES1 seat, you can utilize 98 unique mounting configurations.
The ES1 racing seat is suitable for drivers between 120cm and 210cm (4ft – 6ft 9 inches) in height and waists up to 42 inches.
100% compatible with the full Next Level Racing motion suite
The F-GT Elite is fully compatible with the Next Level Racing Motion Platform V3 and the Traction Plus platform. You can turn the F-GT into the ultimate motion cockpit with full 3 DOF motion.
With the Motion Platform 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.
The Simagic Alpha direct drive wheelbase features a three phase, servo motor for and incredible and immersive force feedback experience
You ready for the most immersive sim racing experience you’ll likely come across in your life? That’s exactly what’s on offer here with the Alpha direct drive wheelbase.
From the moment you pull the Alpha from the box, bolt it to your rig and start racing…you’ll be stunned, shocked and won’t be able to wipe the ear-to-ear smile from your face.
The Alpha is easily one of the best performing direct drive wheelbases for the price. That’s because it’s a direct drive wheel. No bands or gears here, your wheel is connected directly to the steering shaft and motor handing you incredible in-game force feedback sensations.
You’ll feel every turn, crash, bump and slide. This incredible performance is controlled by three (yes THREE!) CPUs. This triple CPU set-up processes incoming data at a rapid rate – just 1ms latency. Resulting in a 1,000Hz refresh rate for USB communication, and a 40,000Hz update rate for force feedback controls.
All up the Alpha servo motor spits out a HUGE 15Nm of torque, one of the most powerful direct drive motors you’ll find anywhere.
Not only does the Alpha pack incredible specs, it looks amazing, too. You’ve got a CNC machined aviation aluminium housing anodized black. The housing is just 15cm long. So, not only is the Alpha one of the most powerful and realistic direct drive wheelbases on the market right now, it’s also ultra-compact and will easily bolt to any racing simulator cockpit.
Complete PC plug and play system. Just plug your new Simagic Alpha Mini into your PC, fire-up the Race Manager software…and start racing!
The Simagic Alpha is a complete plug and play system. Just plug in the included USB cable, download the race manager software (to tweak and fine-tune in-game settings) and start racing.
Race Manager provides you with an advanced platform to calibrate your Alpha wheel just how you like it. You can quickly and easily edit settings, alter force feedback fidelity and more.
The Race Manager software is free to download directly from the Simagic website.

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…

So, again, we’ll do everything we can to make sure you’re over the moon with your Gamer Gear Direct shopping experience.

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.

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.

‘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.
