The Next Level Racing Elite series F-GT sim racing cockpit is the very first aluminium profile sim rig from Australian manufacturer, Next Level Racing. We love “8020” aluminium profile for cockpit construction because it’s extremely stiff. High stiffness means close to zero perceptible flex. Having a cockpit chassis that doesn’t flex is huge for your driving accuracy and consistency, meaning your laptimes will be faster, more consistent and critically, less error prone. It’s great to see Next Level developing their product line with what we consider to be a “step up” into a professional product line.

Designed for the “Elite sim racer”, Next Level have taken their time to get feedback from professional sim racers and hobbyists to achieve a balance on design, ergonomics and usability, while making sure to design-in compatibility with all of the world’s most popular sim racing hardware. Some of the aesthetic touches are fantastic too; such as anozided alumium brackets for the wheeldeck, and overall the rig is highly adjustable to suit any driver’s needs.

Standard alumium profile and off the shelf parts this is not. Next Level have completely custom designed the profile sections themselves to deliver something that, on close inspection, looks so different to the rest. This custom design is not just to provide stiffness but also to give the cockpit a unique look and something to be very proud of when set up in your sim racing room.

The rig itself weights just 53kg which, is lighter than many cockpits – but thanks to design has even more rigidity. Close attention to detail is something we really appreciate at G-Performance – a close look reveals the unique “carbon grey” post anodized profile using a special chemically balanced anodizing process. The aluminium is scratch resistant (not scratch proof but certainly very hard wearing!)

F-GT ELITE pedal mount

Something that really stands out about the Next Level Racing F-GT Elite is the unique design of the pedal base. It’s extremely easy to access and mount pedals to; and unlike a lot of high-end sim racing cockpits gives you scope to adjust the pedal base angle easily. The 5mm thick, 6061 solid CNC anodized aluminium mount offers 70 degrees of tilt (40 degrees downward, 30 degrees upward), so you can set the rig up for GT style racing or, go full F1!

We really like a pedal base that takes the hassle out of pedal installation and replacement too – in this area Next Level really seem to have got their design right, with plenty of access available around the cockpit.

Next Level’s goal with the F-GT Elite is to “look beyond off-the-shelf-parts”, a wise decision given the huge market saturation with budget alumium profile equipment. The detailing around the engraved profile end caps, strengthening brackets and indexing holes for the bolts really does put this cockpit ahead – and very squarely in the Simlab P1-X’s way.

Next Level Racing toolkit - G-Performance

As a driver, you’ll have a very personal feel for ergonimics and comfort. Most often an F1 enthusiast would have to buy component parts particular to their preferences. With the F-GT Elite, you’ve got the choice of a true Formula, GT or Hybrid racing setup. Thanks to the thoughtfulness of the design and quality of the machining around this product, making fine adjustments is very easy. Each component slides over the other seamlessly and squarely, making finalising the perfect setup a simple task. The rig comes with its own toolkit which can be mounted within easy reach should you want to make a quick adjustment during a practice session.

Shock absorbing adjustable feet are included in the package which makes setting your cockpit perfectly level very simple. You’ll also get the benefit of reduced vibration to the floor, should keeping vibration to a minumum be important. Some of the other components supplied with teh F-GT Elite are entirely custom, such as the electroplated t-slot nuts, custom end caps and cable clips for easier cable management.

There’s a novel take on the seat bracket mounting system, too which enables maximum rigidity while eliminating rattles and flex associated with ordinary seat sliders.
