Upgrade your sim experience with the incredible Next Level Racing GTElite aluminium racing simulator
The GTElite is Next Level Racing’s premium ‘8040’ aluminium racing simulator. It’s hands down one of the most rigid, feature packed racing cockpits on the market today.
Thanks to cutting edge engineering and manufacturing, combined with unique components, fixtures, and reinforcements, Next Level Racing has produced a mid-range cockpit that is stronger and more rigid than some of the well-known ‘160x40’ aluminium cockpits you may have seen on the market.
The moment you unbox your new GTElite simulator you’ll be blown away by the quality components included. This top-shelf chassis is crafted from high-end, extruded aluminium and includes your choice of a universal or front load wheel mount, pedal plate and shifter mount. Each mount is made from laser cut carbon steel and compatible with all major electronics brands.
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 Gamer 2 adaptor and cable management clips.
The GTElite racing simulator 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 GTElite racing simulator.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Next Level Racing GTElite aluminium racing cockpit…
The Next Level Racing GTElite chassis is constructed from premium, 80mm x 40mm extruded aluminium profile
Extruded aluminium is extremely strong, rigid and 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 GT Elite features custom, thick-walled 80mm x 40mm profile for the chassis and wheel uprights. Thanks to advanced engineering, this set-up is stronger and more rigid than some aluminium cockpits with double the profile size (160mm).
The premium anodizing process means you’ve got a rig that is scratch resistant.
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 GTElite racing simulator cockpit, they’ve stamped it with a one year warranty.
Flex-free, fully adjustable, wheel and pedal mounts
There are zero compromises when it comes to the GTElite.
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 wheel mount that’s suitable for most front loaded, 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). Pedal sets from brands like Fanatec, Simagic, BJ SimRacing, Thrustmaster, Meca and more will bolt on with ease.
Packed to the brim with accessories
The GTElite is oozing with add-ons and accessories. You’ve got an adjustable, 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 and installation tools.
Choose your racing seat
The Next Level Racing GTElite cockpit includes two optional racing seats – the fixed back ES1 and the reclinable ERS1. Both seats are superior in comfort and design.
Each seat bolts directly onto the GTElite chassis. You can slide each seat forward and back. Both seats are suitable for drivers between 120cm and 210cm (4ft – 6ft 9 inches) in height. The entire rig can support 150kg.
Compatible with the full Next Level Racing motion suite
The GTElite is compatible with the full Next Level Racing motion suite including the Motion Platform V3, Traction Plus and the Motion Plus platforms. You can turn the GTElite into the ultimate motion cockpit with full 4DOF motion.
With a 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.
Backed by a 12 month warranty
The GTElite racing cockpit is stamped with a one-year, limited warranty. This warranty covers you against manufacturer details.

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.
