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*.

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
High-end features like strong wheel and pedal base like never seen before now available at a mid-range price point. Precisely designed multi-folded wheel, pedal, and shifter plates combined with thick carbon steel removes deflection and flex to provide a stronger and more rigid platform for users to attach their highest performing electronics. 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.
Wheel Deck –equivalent to 14.3mm steel or 20.85mm aluminium
Pedal Deck – equivalent to 10.84mm steel or 15.83mm aluminium
Shifter Plate – equivalent to 18.51 steel or 29.18mm aluminium
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. The Next Level Racing® Elite Sim Racing Seats are the recommended seats to use with the Elite range of cockpits as they have been designed and optimized for elite sim racers.
