thx for the tip!!!

Also, if anyone selling any PM me with a price. I'm looking for slightly used, if not brand new for a good price. Doesn't have to be sparco, corbeau..etc...anything that look and feels decent.

Also, what would others recommend. 3pt, 4pt, 5pt..harness?? Please give some opinions whether what to get.

Thanks

3 or 4pt is best. they are virtually the same, but the 4pt bolts in 2 times, instead of once (like the 3pt)

4 pt

3 pt

5ps is just for racing becuase they are a pain to get in and out of (5 different belts to buckle instead of one).

5 pt (just looks at all of those belts...)

If you install the harness without a functional roll cage, you pose a great risk of breaking your back if your car flips over. If your car flips over, and you have those harnesses on tight, the roof may cave in and come in hard on your head causing spinal cord injury. With the stock seat belts you would be able to tilt your body/neck/back to the side to prevent spinal injury.

If you still want to install these harnesses, make sure you mount them at the same level of your shoulders or near to it.

I'd use one for autox to hold by body in place(Not for safety) only where the top speed you'll be hitting is 30-40 mph in an open parking lot with no large obstuctions and very little chance of flipping. On public roads and highways, I would use the STOCK seat belts.
