Introducing the new Next Level Racing® GTElite Cockpit. The GTElite cockpit’s patent-pending design brings rigidity and stability into a new price point making it the best mid-range aluminium profile cockpit on the market. With attention to detail and engineering as seen on our Elite series, the GTElite compared to mid-range cockpits in its class is more rigid, easier to assemble, provides more inclusions, while providing a higher quality finish.
While constructed to suit the mid-range category with a “4080” profile, through cutting edge engineering and manufacturing, combined with unique components, fixtures, and reinforcements, the GTElite is the most rigid mid-range cockpit. Through this innovative process, the GTElite in some cases is stronger than conventional “16040” cockpits seen on the market.
With an extensive ecosystem in mind, the GTElite is upgradable to be compatible with Next Level Racing® Motion Products and has the ability to be transformed into a multi-position cockpit solution with the ready set kits*.
*Motion Kit and Formula kit need to be purchased separately.
BUILT TO BE STRONG
Conventional corner brackets are things of the past. The GTELite Cockpit utilizes an 8mm thick Carbon Steel Reinforced Upright Direct Mounting plates, the GTElite has a stronger reinforcement and connection between the vertical uprights and the base of the chassis. To eliminate any movement and increase the clamping force between the components, custom-engineered full channel width spring ball T-slot nuts are used throughout the build + through bolts for areas that require higher clamp force and rigidity. The 8mm Carbon Steel Sandwich Plate also provides a connection between the vertical uprights and the pedal plate to lock in and increase the reinforcement between the structural parts of the cockpit. The strength continues with precision machined holes to bolt the base of the profile directly for a more rigid foundation.
TAKE CONTROL UNDER INTENSE RACING
Included in the GTElite Front & Side Mount Edition are Next Level Racing’s bespoke Direct Drive mounting solution.
Machine Folded and precision Laser Cut parts make the Next Level Racing GTELITE Front & Side Mount Cockpit a premium option for racers that demand the ultimate in versatility and rigidity from their cockpit.
The 8mm thick Carbon Steel Side Mounts offers 70 degrees of tilt (40 degrees downward, 30 degrees upward), giving drivers the option to fine tune their Elite cockpit for the perfect driving position. NOTE: The GTElite Front & Side Mount Edition also comes with 6mm Carbon Steel (machine folded & laser cut) “WINGS” as well as the 6mm Front Mount Bracket Option.
The strength can be seen in the FEA (Finite Element Analysis) Tests comparing the innovative GTElite plate designs to other flat steel or aluminium designs seen in conventional cockpits on the market.

INNOVATIVE FLEX-FREE NLR SEAT SLIDERS & 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 simulators. The NLR ratchets are included 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 4mm carbon steel to provide the rigidity required for competitive racers and the new design provides more adjustability to support multiple seating positions with 55 adjustment combinations. Users are also able to use the included Universal seat brackets to provide height and angle adjustability for bottom mounting seats. This is a new range of adjustment introduced for bottom mounting seat users that will provide more fine adjustments, resulting in a more personalized racing experience.

EASE OF ASSEMBLY
By designing custom components and using advanced manufacturing processes with precision machined holes in the aluminium profile, it allows for 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 GTElite profile helps you to get racing quicker than any other aluminium cockpit before.
