Here's everything else you need to know about the Motion Platform V3...
The Next Level Racing® Motion Platform V3 is designed and engineered to be the most advanced professional consumer platform on the market
Based on feedback from thousands of customers, the Motion Platform V3 is guaranteed to outperform professional platforms far greater in price.
The platform is a product forged from years of simulation expertise combined with world leading European motion and software engineers.
The Next Level Racing® motion platforms are not only used by sim racers from around the world but also leading universities, military defence, training institutions and professional drivers/pilots.
So what does the motion platform do?
Well, it's engineered specifically for the seat to move to give you a most realistic, in-game immersion.
The Next Level Racing® motion platform is tested and proven to feel g-forces more effectively through muscle pressures that you wouldn’t feel if the wheel and pedals moved at the same time.
This pressure applied to your body and muscles can more realistically replicate and sustain the same g-forces as a real car.
This method of only the seat moving is not only used by professional race car drivers for training but also on some of the world’s most advanced and high end motion simulators including CXC Simulations.
Includes Next Level Racing platform manager software to fine tune motion, bumps, rolls and pitch with the click of a button...
This is professional and specialised software for the platform.
It's click and play compatible with all major racing and flight titles on PC (see the compatible games tab for more details) and is constantly updated to support new titles as they are released.
The Platform Manager is a powerful engine, yet it’s simple to use meaning you can adjust levels of motion, bumps, roll and pitch with a click of a button.
The software also includes VR headway which using advanced mathematic formulas to calculate necessary compensation and applies it to the VR headset at run-time meaning the most authentic and immersive simulation experience.
The Next Level Racing® Motion Platform V3 is designed for ease of use with little to no technical support required for assembly and operation meaning you can install the platform yourself with ease and be up and racing/flying with complete motion in less than an hour.

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!)

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.

‘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).

Great product, even better service.
Fitted to Trackracer TR160 frame with custom brackets, awesome
I was a bit leery about ordering something that was $3,000.00 without any support based in the United States. Unfortunately it failed but I was shipped a new one free of charge. The person at Next Level (Matthew) was very helpful and prompt with my issue. It enhances the experience of sim racing.
I purchased this item for more immersion and to have a better feel of the road, bumps, car behaviour. Oh boy was i surprised. This is really immersive, if you add a VR headset is really nice to feel the braking throw your forward and the same with accelerator and side to side movement. Since it's a seat mover it's easier for the platform to perform with quick and fast movement, meaning there is zero lag.I tried it also with flight sims but i will say it performs best for racing games where fast inputs are a big plus.I will strongly suggest this product if you have a fair amount of money to add to your rig!
This really does add to the feel of realism especially in VR. Never a regret. I did buy a new usb 2.0 cable with ferrite core since the cable provided was a bit short for my setup.
