The Next Level Racing Traction Plus hands you one of the most immersive and realistic cockpit moving motion platforms you'll lay your eyes on
The Traction Plus motion platform is truly a world class product designed to close that gap between the simulation and reality with a product and experience like no other motion simulator on the market today.
This style simulation technology is usually only ever seen in professional Formula 1 racing teams with budgets in the hundreds of millions of dollars. The Traction Plus Motion Platform was designed and developed in collaboration with a world class motion engineering team to deliver an unrivalled motion experience.
To achieve the ultimate simulation realism and precision has required completely unique technology and engineering.
The Traction Plus was designed from the ground up over 4 years and includes over 2000 components. It's vastly more than just a rear traction loss system and was designed to combine with the Next Level Racing Motion Platform V3 to provide a ground breaking motion simulator experience.
More details below. First, here's some of the awesome features packed into the Traction Plus Motion Platform...
- Developed and tested for 4 years with 2000 moving components
- Used by professional race car drivers and pilots
- Highest quality European manufacturing
- Supported by by Next Level Racing Platform Manager software
- Designed for personal and commercial application with VR compatibility
- Compatible with Next Level Racing Motion Platform V3, GTtrack cockpit and future products
- Accurate feedback to provide the most precise simulation experience
- Set to assemble in under an hour
- Compatible with a wide range of gaming titles covering both racing and flight
Here's how the Traction Plus motion platform can deliver you an unrivalled immersive experience in racing and flight simulation environments...
Super-realistic racing simulation motion that will give you goosebumps
The Traction Plus Motion Platform moves the whole cockpit and delivers both understeer and oversteer in the most realistic and precise way possible.
Based on feedback from professional drivers during product development, the understeer component of a motion platform which is usually only found in 6DOF systems is absolutely critical in accurately and precisely simulating the vehicle.
Feeling both understeer and oversteer the platform can be used effectively for driver/racer training particularly for cornering and rally. You actually FEEL what is happening with both rear and front of the vehicle.
Even the differences between rear wheel drive, front wheel drive and all-wheel drive vehicles can be felt with the precise feedback delivered through the Traction Plus platform.
Combined with the Motion Platform V3, you've got a supremely accurate vehicle feedback system for front wheel lock up meaning you will feel vibration as well as the front of the vehicle sliding out of a corner when too much brake pressure is applied. (also applicable for rear wheel lock up depending on vehicle bias)
The Traction Plus combined with the Next Level Racing Motion Platform V3 provides incredible levels of vehicle feedback to the driver to feel exactly what the vehicle is doing by precisely delivering:
- Understeer and front traction loss – (critical feature usually only experienced in 6DOF motion platforms)
- Oversteer and rear traction loss
- Power slides and drifting
- Partial heave
- Vehicle and road effects such as road surface, bumps, wheel lock/spin, gear changes and more
- Shunting effects (to feel side impact contact from opponents/wall)
Incredible, life-like flight simulation that's as close to the real thing as you'll ever get
As with the Motion Platform V3 that has been used professional aviators including: airline, private, military, and flight training institutions and universities, the Traction Plus Platform can add further realism by allowing the pilot to experience the flight characteristics of the aircraft more realistically.
The Pitch and Roll axis simulation from the Motion Platform V3 is augmented with the Traction Plus to provide the third axis of Yaw to generate an incredibly genuine sensation of flight.
The simulator also replicates the motions of landing gear operation, combat/cannon fire, ground movement, turbulence, and crosswind effects. It can be paired with augmented reality/VR units to create an unparalleled level of realism.
Smoother rudder operation can be trained effectively with the combination of yaw and pivot.
Whether it be for fun, training, or for professional development, the Traction Plus will surely be an important instrument for any aviators journey.
Unparalleled innovation & technology
The design, engineering and technology of the Traction Plus is completely ground breaking and you will expect the same level of quality and durability with this product as found with the Motion Platform V3.
Designed and manufactured completely in Europe and powered by MotionSystems, the Traction Plus platform is a world class product.
Also keeping the home user in mind, painstaking engineering has been performed to not only set a benchmark in performance but also make sure the Traction Plus (like the Motion Platform V3) is the quietest motion platform in its class with the smallest footprint possible.
Developed and engineered purely for simulation
The Traction Plus has been designed, engineered and manufactured to give the most realistic, immersive and accurate simulation experience and delivers a new benchmark in motion simulation experience.
This is not just another actuator solution that simply features adapted actuators used for simulation.
This is a product designed, engineered and manufactured from ground up purely for advanced simulation and professional applications to precisely deliver feedback to the driver or pilot.
Easy & fast assembly
As with the Motion Platform V3 The Traction Plus is a product designed for a customer to be able to assemble and setup in their very own home themselves without needing to have a technical background.
The Traction Plus platform comes with clear assembly instructions making setup simple for even a beginner.
Click & play platform manager software
The Traction Plus comes complete with click and play Next Level Racing Platform manager software.
This software uses telemetry data to give the most realistic and accurate profile cues.
This is professional grade software developed by world leading motion engineers ensuring absolute precision in delivering feedback from the game, without lag, in real time.
Whilst being professional software it’s designed to be used by even a novice with simple to use dashboard to start your game and being able to change all settings at a click of a button.

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 are SEVEN 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.
REASON #1: 100% customer satisfaction GUARANTEED (if you’re not happy then neither are we – simple as that)
We’ll bend over backwards to ensure you are 100% happy and satisfied with your order and our world-class customer service. We want you to rave about your experience with us to your friends and family.
But we know that’ll only happen if we treat every customer like you’re the most important customer in the world. And you are! Without you we wouldn’t be in this business. We’ve only got to where we are today by treating our customers to a high level of service that you’ll rarely find online.
We’ll literally bend over backwards to ensure your experience with us is one you’ll shout about to your neighbour or mates at work. 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 owned and operated 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. In fact, I’d bet my house they won’t. But look, you don’t have to take my word for it. 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’.
Luke H. had this to say: ‘Amazing, Excellent Service. I'm very impressed. Well informed staff and good quality selection of Sim Racing gear. Staff even went above and beyond to answer a query regarding whether a certain set of pedals would properly mount to a specific cockpit by testing it themselves on my behalf. Delivery is ridiculous fast and free. Less than 24 hour delivery to Sydney NSW which is impressive. Definitely my go to place for all future gear'.
And this from Brendan: ‘Hands down the best online supplier in Australia atm. Customer service is above an beyond any other Australian company. Blake is always happy to try an keep the customer as happy as possible an with the best deal. I will be back...a forever shop and first stop when hunting any sim upgrade.’
That’s not an exhaustive list, either. There are plenty more happy customer stories we could share with you. But let’s move on to reason number two…
REASON #2: Five-star customer support
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).
We understand a lot of our customers (like you) are busy individuals.
Sometimes, you’ve only got time to peruse our website when you’re sitting down on the couch, chilling out after a hard day at work (maybe with a cold beverage in hand).
If you need a hand with anything, or you’ve got a question. Just tap on the live chat widget (at the bottom right of screen), email us (email@example.com) or call on (03) 9961 0240.
REASON #3: Shop with confidence thanks to our 30 day return policy
The moment you buy anything (yes, anything!) from Gamer Gear Direct you’re automatically covered by our 30-day return policy.
Buy today and if your item is not performing as it should or is faulty just return inside those first 30 days, in 'as new' condition for a refund or exchange. Please note that our return policy does not cover 'change of mind' purchases.
On top of our 30-day return policy, you’re also covered by a manufacturers’ warranty. Every product we sell is covered by a MINIMUM 6-month warranty (most are covered by a 1 year or better warranty).
When you buy from us, you’re buying top quality, brand name products (no crap ‘grey import’ products here), that’ll do exactly what they say on the box.
You'll find more details on our return policy HERE.
REASON #4: We’re competitive on our prices. If you see a Gamer Gear Direct product cheaper online, contact us and we’ll see if we can work out a deal
That doesn’t mean we’ll always beat the competition on price. Some of the big-name stores bulk up big time on products. We’re still competitive, but may not have the margin to beat them.
That aside, our prices are easily some of the cheapest you’ll find online. Plus, when you bundle several items together, we’re more than happy to chat about a bundle discount
Hit us up and we’ll chat more about price (you can open the chat widget at the bottom right of screen and start a conversation).
REASON #5: Fast shipping Australia wide
When you’re shopping online, you want your order delivered fast, right? We understand. That’s why 99% of our orders are shipped within one to two business days from the time you order.
Your order will usually arrive at your doorstep within 3 to 5 business days from the day you ordered. Doesn’t matter whether you order a 50kg racing simulator cockpit or a mousepad, we’ll make sure you get your order in super quick time.
We use the fastest couriers in the country to make sure you get your order in record time.
You can track your order the entire time, too. As soon as your order is on the way we’ll send you an email with tracking details, so you can keep your eye on where your order is the entire time.
Of course, if you have any questions or queries about your order simply email or call us and we’ll help you in any way we can.
REASON #6: Every product from Gamer Gear Direct is covered by a manufacturer warranty
Nothing worse than buying something online and it’s faulty, right?
We feel you.
That’s exactly why every item we stock is covered by a minimum 6-month warranty.
If the product you ordered from us doesn’t work right, simply return it to us and we’ll get it fixed for you under warranty.
Or if we can’t have it fixed, we’ll provide you with a replacement item as soon as possible.
REASON #7: Safe and 100% secure checkout
Our shopping cart is fitted with SSL encryption.
What the hell does that mean, you ask?
Well, that simply means all your data is 100% secure when you shop on the Gamer Gear Direct website.
We don’t save or share any of your payment details. Nor are those precious details stored anywhere on our website.
So, there you have it. There are our 7 big reasons on why you should buy all your sim goodies from us and not the competition.
Remember, we are always happy to chat with you at any time. You can open a live chat (at bottom right of screen). Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call on (03) 9961 0240.
