Bought this after seeing an ad feels and looks sturdy looks very good as well the only complaint I have is it never came with instructions, but other then that it’s an awesome product and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a similar set up
Probably the best purchase during lockdown. And it somehow made it to California from Glasgow which is awesome. The Apex Stand bolts right up to the Rear Seat Bracket. I used a spare Evo9 seat I had so I had to make an extension to be able to bolt all 4 points to the rail. Also it arrived without instructions but can be found online (via Google which leads back to GT Omega dunno why it can't be found easily on the main page) link here: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0051/5886/2936/files/APEX_REAR_SEAT_FRAME-min.pdf?14553
Iam slowly building the gt omega need seat and shifter mount and tv mount
The frame is really sturdy, and easy to assemble. It does cause the folding of the wheel frame to become impossible without some level of dis-assembly, this was one of the main functions I wanted from the original wheel frame, and was hoping to keep. There is flex between the wheel frame and the seat when pressing the brake hard (although this might be fixable with the extra parts included - and I’ve only noticed the flex during testing rather than in use), and seat adjustability is all with bolts, there could be an easy slider to help with this for different sized people. Other than these points it’s a great frame, that’s very sturdy, with a huge amount of adjustability.
Fantastic product! Quick delivery, very friendly and helpful people at GT Omega. The frame was easy to assembly expect of fitting in and assembly of the RS seat. I would also change the fixed robber pads to spherical joint pads. When it comes to pads itself, it is impossible to slide the frame anywhere once they are attached and the cockpit stays when you want it to stay. The frame is well designed and you can spend your racing time very comfortably. There are plenty of adjustment possibilities so you can find a proper setup for your needs. I am 190cm, 80kg and I feel very comfortable during my races. There is a slight flex in the middle of the frame when you press the pedal's support extremely hard but it won't flex during normal use. I can easily recommend this product to anyone who wants to upgrade her/his apex wheel stand.
This seat frame is amazing and very comfortable! if you’re on a budget this is a great setup!
Very happy with the Apex Rear Frame. It is a perfect add-on for the Apex Stand. Now I have a super Cockpit where I can put everything with large adjustement possibilities. I will now orderded the RS9 to leave my current seat going back on its wheels to be used as desktop chair.
I love all you products!amazing build quality with a good price!dont need more!full support for Gt Omega Racing

Treated myself to the Apex wheel mount and seat mount set. Awesome quality, really sturdy even with the force feedback on strong and those hairy cross arm moments. There were no destructions for the seat mount and it was different to the pictured item but not too difficult to work out. Does not fit Cobra seats but you drill some new holes and make them fit. Overall well happy!
My Apex extension arrived at the same time as the RS9 sim seat. Unfortunately there were no directions as to how to put it together, but with the help of GT Omega racing and a few sim racers on reddit I sorted everything out, and put it together. I understand that this product was new and no assembly directions were produced at the time of purchase. Sorry guys, but don't do that again please. Assembly proceded and with a couple of hours I had the extension built out and the new RS9 seat mounted on the frame. Gotta say I love it and for a new sim racer it makes for a fantastic addition to my set up. No movement on the frame at all, so I nice stable platform while competing. Thanks to everyone at GT Omega and the guys on Reddit who helped me out with the build
The Apex wheel stand is very stable by itself. The rear seat frame was made with the same quality. It is large enough that I can fit comfortably, as I am 6'1" 280pds. I am also looking forward to addons in the future, as I did receive 2 extra bars that go under the seat frame. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a stable cockpit without breaking the bank.
For the price point, it's a great value that thing is solid and of course not having instructions allowed my imagination to run wild and make it better.
GT Omega products are great and solidly built. The only downside was that the rear seat frame did not come with instructions. But once I finally got the first two pieces together everything else made sense. I think it also comes with items for future pieces which is good I guess. Shipping was usually within a few day.
For the price, the Apex Wheelstand + rear seat frame is a solid option. There is some gentle flex under the seat frame that could probably be easily remedied with an extra bolt, so it's a little odd that it wasn't designed to be a little sturdier. That said, I replaced all the rubber feet with caster wheels, and managed to mostly wipe out any sagging. For the price I paid, I couldn't be happier with the performance of this setup. Performance in-game is much improved now that I can be 100% confident with my inputs during intense situations.
