Designed and engineered by using the feedback from our community, virtual and real motorsport industry feedback; the Next Level Racing® F-GT Elite racing simulator cockpit* is a true all in one formula/GT/Hybrid position racing cockpit pushing the boundaries of what is expected of an aluminium profile cockpit and setting a new standard for sim racing. As well as market leading features the F-GT Elite sets a new benchmark for aesthetics, functionality and quality for an aluminium profile cockpit or what’s commonly referred to as an “8020 racing simula tor cockpit”.
The Next Level Racing® F-GT Elite is a product designed from ground up with attention to detail. The F-GT Elite cockpit is much more than just another aluminium extrusion cockpit by using custom premium parts, finish, components and cutting-edge manufacturing to take aluminium profile cockpits to the Next Level.
Providing a competitive edge to virtual racers, the Elite series will be used by racing professionals globally such as esports teams, race car drivers and sim racers seeking the ultimate in performance.
Whilst providing complete rigidity and ultimate adjustability the F-GT Elite cockpit offers true and comfortable Formula, GT, hybrid, truck and tank driving positions with quick adjustments between positions making it a true one for all cockpit. The increased angle and range provided in the seat brackets, wheel and pedal plate caters for users of all sizes and driving styles by giving more adjustability than ever before.
The innovative Next Level Racing® Seat Sliding System has been designed and engineered to eliminate the issue of flex found in conventional seat sliders used in simulation. The NLR ratchets are used to easily slide your seat back and forth to find the desired position for a flex free racing experience.
The Next Level Racing® Seat Brackets are constructed from 5mm carbon steel to provide the rigidity required for high end sim racers and the new design provides more adjustability than ever before to support multiple seating positions with 98 adjustment options. The optional Next Level Racing® ES1 Elite Sim Racing Seat is the recommended seat to use with the Elite range of cockpits as the seat has been designed and optimised for elite sim racers.
The sliding pedal plates have been designed to provide easy and quick distance adjustments for pedals as well as compatibility with the continuously expanding pedal market. Equipped with 2 slotted 5mm carbon steel pedal plates with double precision folds, this setup ensures supreme rigidity but straightforward compatibility. The pedal tray area has been 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.
When it comes to aluminium profiles, they are not all the same quality and strength. 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.
The F-GT Elite cockpit provides a long list of unique custom engineered components to provide users with the highest quality and performing product on the market. Rather than adapting industrial off the shelf components, we are pioneering how aluminium profile cockpits should be designed. No industrial square brackets are required, profile pieces are pre-machined to allow for quicker, easier and stronger connections. We focused on the finer details like the black electroplated premium spring ball T-slot nuts and the custom NLR end caps to combine for improved functionality. The premium finish and materials, custom components and market leading design come together for a visual masterpiece.
Adding motion has never been easier as the F-GT Elite cockpit is compatible with all Next Level Racing® Motion products and designed for quick and simple installation with pre machined holes and included brackets.
Uneven floors should never spoil your simulation experience. We have kept this in mind when designing our height adjustment feet allowing independent adjustments for the height of each corner of your cockpit. The custom designed feet are not only a major aesthetical improvement on typical industrial feet commonly used in the simulation market, they also Include TPE shock absorption plugs designed to absorb vibrations and provide grip on slippery surfaces. For user experience, the custom Next Level Racing® Safety Step included with the cockpit allows easier access in and out of the cockpit for drivers
By designing custom components and using advanced manufacturing for precision machined holes in the aluminium profile this allows easier assembly and more rigid connection as the profile bolts together. The improved design means that the hassles of aligning fiddly corner brackets are a thing of the past. Combining the ease of assembly with the laser etched line markings on the profile help you to get racing quicker than any other aluminium cockpit before. Each piece is individually placed in our custom foam packaging to ensure the safety of the product while in transport and providing a seamless user experience from the time the packaging is opened.
