ALL-IN-ONE, MULTI-POSITION COCKPIT
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 cockpits. The increased angle and range provided in the seat brackets, wheel, and pedal plate caters to users of all sizes and driving styles by giving more adjustability than ever before.
INNOVATIVE FLEX-FREE NLR SEAT SLIDER & BRACKET SYSTEM
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 the 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 optimized for elite sim racers.
UNIVERSAL SLIDING PEDAL PLATES
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 a wider range of driving positions. The laser etched markings on the aluminum profile assist with making accurate adjustments.
CUSTOM PROFILE AND POST ANODIZING
When it comes to aluminum profiles, they are not all of 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 the last step also prevents sharp shavings/edging ensuring the safe setup of your new cockpit.
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.
DESIGN SHOULD BE BEAUTIFUL & FUNCTIONAL
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 aluminum profile cockpits should be designed. No industrial square brackets are required, and 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.
NLR HEIGHT ADJUSTABLE SHOCK-ABSORPTION FEET
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, but 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
EASE OF ASSEMBLY AND USE
Designing custom components and using advanced manufacturing for precision machined holes in the aluminum profile allows easier assembly and a 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 helps you to get racing quicker than any other aluminum cockpit before. Each piece is individually placed in our custom foam packaging to ensure the safety of the product while in transport and provide a seamless user experience from the time the packaging is opened.
