Made it fit a different wheel stand but it works as it should.
So happy leather seat and direct drive wheel next Christmas
Great product I built a rig for me and my best friend with this. The only issue I found is that there is no seat height adjustment with the seat that you guys sell I was able to resolve that by getting an Audi/VW seat that had built in height adjustment.
Realy happy with this apex cockpit i recommend
really love the fact that you can purchase the wheel stand, and upgrade to a full set in a 2th moment. the only thing that i think need to be modded is the effective clamp hole, maybe using some extra clamp zone as if you dont have the right sim chair you need to adabt either the chair or the rear addon. but do the job done!
I got the rear seat frame with the RS9 seat. I am satisfied with the purchase, but will be upgrading soon to the PRIME cockpit for more adjustability and comfort. The frame is just as solid as it was without the rear attachment, and now I can feel all the bumps and forces in my seat as well. This brings much more immersion and enjoyment. I've noticed no flex in the seat frame. The only gripe I have is the adjustability of seating position. I am unable to raise my seat. Lowering the wheel base also puts it further away, making me slide my seat closer and then my pedals are too close. It's quite frustrating to get a decent comfortable driving position. I may add extra bars under the seat to raise it up a few inches, but this might make things unstable. I've decided to just be happy with it and upgrade in the future. For what this is, it works very well. Most people will be happy with the seating positions attainable here, but if you want full adjustability and comfort, go for aluminum profile cockpits.
Overall I think this is a great addition to my Apex stand. It makes the overall rig much more stable and having a stable seat is a game changer. It's 4 out of 5 for me because the seat height is a little too low, so to have the wheel stand at a reasonable height you need the wheel base mount almost at its bottom, which blocks the shifter mounting point. Looking at the other photos, this seems to be a common issue.
Excellent fit and assembly
Well built and easy to put together !
Frame is very stirdy and fits perfectly to the apex wheel stand.

Tutto perfetto qualità dei materiali ottimi. Consigliatissimo! Vero Prof.
Ties in nicely with the apex frame! Solid construction and easy to assemble in a short time. A nice touch is that all tools required are provided, so no rummaging toolboxes etc to find the correct tool. Big thumbs up!
The stand height is tricky to perfect as it comes up and down at an angle. It’s either too far and at the right height or at the perfectly close to my body but too high. A simple slider on the wheel base plate would solve this issue. You guys should make and sell a wheelbase plate with a slider on it.
Slightly modified to suit the folding wheel stand I have to keep it somewhat portable and works perfect, strong and no flex
Easily fitted to the Apex wheel stand turning it into a full cockpit. Super strong construction that will handle whatever you throw at it. I'm super happy with my purchase.
Really easy to assemble and good quality
Assembly was a breeze and quality was great!
There are so many choices of racing stands it's almost impossible to choose from. I bought the apex thinking it will do the job but the extension was a bargain and I took a chance it would be strong and stiff enough. It is and more. Also bought the GT seat since it also had very good reviews. Putting it together was fairly straight forward. Everything is made very strong and all the hardware needed. Putting the seat on and sitting in it I was amazed how stiff it was. The screw-in rubber feet are also made very well but don't expect to slide this around on carpet very often. Overall I'm sold on GTOmega and their products.
Love my Apex seat base! I wish it was easier to mount a 3rd party seat to it. I have a Celica GT seat I was planning to use, but it proved to be too difficult so I ended up buying the GT Omega RS9. Can't really fault GT Omega for that though, it works perfectly with the seats they make.

I am very pleased with the rear seat frame for my Apex Racing Stand. I ordered this along with the RS6 seat, and the assembly was quite easy. Many people stated that they did not receive instructions, but I did, and they were quite easy to follow. It probably took about an hour assemble. The seat frame is extremely sturdy, and seems quite well built. You should definitely consider this if you currently have the Apex Racing Stand and are looking to go to a full cockpit. The one thing I'd have liked is a height adjustment on the seat, since the height of adjustment on the racing stand also moves the wheel base forward and back. That being said, I was able to find a good compromise and I am quite happy with it.
I spent WEEKS reading reviews all over the internet and watching any Youtube video I could find researching the items for my first rig. In the end the entire lineup from GT Omega was perfect! Very high quality construction, very fast customer service, and easy to setup! I can't tell you how happy I am with my setup. It handles the Fanatec CSL Elite F1 bundle like a champ and is comfortable to sit in for a couple hours at a time. If you're like me and read a ton of reviews and do a lot of research before buying something then save yourself a bit of time and just get this, you'll be happy with it.
Great product very sturdy and small footprint. Would highly recommend this product
Good solid product
First class product, great design being able to expand the apex to include a seat. I swapped out the feet for m8 lockable castors as I need to move it around.
Love the rear seat frame add on! Perfect for people who have limited space and the entire Apex stand with frame is super sturdy!
Great addition to the APEX wheel stand. Combined with the RS6 seat it makes sim racing so much easier. Makes upgrading as you go along easier & cheaper.
After many reviews I choose GT Omega seems to be sturdy and strong, I bought the wheel stand first and the rear frame, now I can’t wait to get the RS9 seat from you guys and finally I can build up all together, I still don’t use because I’m waiting for getting the seat first...
I have had the apex for a while but when I upgraded to the new Logitech wheel for ps5 I needed to make the stand and seat one piece so I could stamp on breaks
Very well built and sturdy accessory for the Apex Stand. Easy assembly and instructions
I like the modular approach to building a race simulator; now, waiting on racing seats to become available from GTOmega...
Glad the apex set comes in a way where I can build and buy at my own pace. Just waiting for a sim racing seat to be in stock!
Works perfectly, especially when coupled with a miata seat! Rubber foot pads make it much quieter for the downstairs neighbors. Next step is a shifter mout
Really impressed, i even added a classic car bucket seat to make it look slick in the study rather than too motorsporty. Such a good setup now.
I bought the Apex rear seat bracket after having my wheel stand for about 10 months. The wheel stand did not come with instructions, but GT Omega sent over the link to their website where they are hosted right away so that was great. One downside is that some washers that were supposed to be included were missing from the box, grabbed some from the hardware store to sort that out. If you do not have a slider on your seat you will likely need to make up some sort of cross bracket to make the seat bolt pattern align but that's pretty easy to sort out. Overall I'm very happy with my GT Omega setup now. There is a very small amount of flex in the rig when under hard braking, but it's not very noticeable and for the price of this and the wheel stand the value is hard to beat.
Only required a better seat mount and GT omega was the only company that offered just a seat mount..
Easy to setup very sturdy and turns your apex stand into a nice looking rig
Loved the product
Absolutely love this stand, rear frame, and monitor stand. I started with just the stand, and was excited to see that I could upgrade it as my setup changed. I currently have a DD1 and V3's with the brake upgrade. This thing is really sturdy, the only movement I have on this is from the makeshift wood mount I had to use for the OpenWheeler brand chair. Eventually I will upgrade the seat. There is only slight movement in the pedal plate when pushing the brake 100%. The rearseat frame is adjustable, helps bring everything into a really solid rig without having to buy a completely different rig as I grow in the hobby.
Seems sturdy. Build was a dreadful experience but once it's done, it's all good !
i like the wheel stand alot, it is very sturdy and i like the adjustability. i also like the seat just wish i would have gotten the xl-rs the rs 9 is just a little narrow for me. But overall very happy. Just ordered another apex wheel stand for my son. could i please get a couple of gt omega racingstickers for my apex seat frame it did not come with any i dont know if it is supposed to or not. if not please let me know how i can get some.... Thank you..
Perfetta per le mie esigenze di spazio/ergonomia/upgrade futuri. Stabilissima e incollata a terra, consigliatissima per fanatec simili al mio. Unico neo, la staffa per il cambio che se non si alza a sufficienza la parte della base non può essere montata come nel mio caso.
The instructions need to be updated for the rear seat; specifically the parts list. The "parts for future expansions" (F) were not in the box, a set of knobs (I) and square seat frame (A) that aren't referenced again in the installation at all. Also, no nice stickers for parts G1 like in the picture :( Once it's all together, it's great! I'm very happy with the purchase.
Great mount! Paired it with the XL RS Seat and the GT omega Apex and it is sturdy as a rock. Works great and no complaints from me!
I have my rig for one month now, and it allows me to play for hours and perfectly in the most comfortable away and with everything in place. I'm very happy with the experience so far. Just need to get better at driving now
Stabile e robusto.
My first foray with GT Omega was stumbling across their stall at The London classic car show in 2019. Special event price, I was swayed into purchasing the GTomega APex wheel stand. The aim here was to slowly build a rig with out making the full commitment if I wanted to seriously get into sim racing again. The last year, with both AC and now ACC has got my sim racing bug truly bitten and with that , time to dive deeper. Whats so great about the APEX series is you can add to it as and when. So , recently that's exactly what I've done! First the GT Apex seat stand with RS9 seat ( COMFY and snug) and then finally the single wide screen stand. The whole piece of kit throughout is superb quality and all fittings as you want them. Firm , clear and adjustable. Best value price too! So whats next? CSl elite wheel and pedals to add to the GT Omega range.
Would be 5/5 if there was instructions included. Would have saved me 5 minutes :)
With this I now finally have a full rig that is extremely stable and sturdy. This has close to zero flex on most of the frame, except for the pedal plate from the Apex wheelstand (but that's more of a negative thing on the wheelstand). All this for a fairly reasonable price imo. This whole rig, that is wheelstand + rear seat attachment + seat cost me about 400 euros, which is extremely competitive. It's probably the best bang for buck out there, especially considering you could still convert it into a wheelstand only if needed. Highly recommended!
Brilliant product. Great service. Happy gamer

Great sturdy product I can rely on for years to come! Things to improve would be: - Wait for paint to dry before packaging (I got bubble wrap marks on the side plate). - Add some type of washer at the end of the tube where it meets the side plates to reduce flex.
The Apex stand is phenomenal, very sturdy and you can see it's made with quality materials. I did a lot of searching and could not find better value. I got the rear frame too, and now I can't wait for the RS9 seats to be back in stock to complete my setup.
I bought the Apex wheel stand a few months ago when I replaced my aging Logitech G25 with a Fanatec CSL Elite. Didn't have the room at the time for a full-on cockpit, so settled on a decent, heavyweight stand. Changed the room around a bit and developed some more space and was gutted that I'd picked the Apex stand over the Classic as I didn't think there was an extension for this (but the Apex stand looked more solid than the Classic). Then I saw there was a rear frame for the Apex stand and immediately went this route and coupled this with the RS9 seat as I wanted a little more room to sit in. The whole lot is much better than my Aeron chair backed up against a desk that I was using beforehand! Some really great products at very reasonable prices from GT Omega =)
Great addition to the Apex wheel stand. As sturdy as the stand itself. Only complaint is the lack of building instructions. There is a pdf on the website though, so all good.
Great upgrade path for the apex allows you to go from stand to cockpit in a flash!
Rear frame goes well with the wheel stand if you are looking to upgrade to a cockpit. It would be amazing if you could adjust the height to improve seat settings based on height of the person.
No instructions but it was not hard to put together once I found out the two extra parts which is the add-ons for later but it was easy to put together and I love it just like I said before about the seat and I love the Apex frame to you thank you get me some more stuff to buy!
Awesome product. The frame is sturdy and the quality is great. Easy to assemble, although it came without instructions. Overall very happy with the product and would defiantly recommend.
Great extension to the apex frame. No instructions in box but soon sorted it with a bit of thinking.
It's very good. And good quality.
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.
