Searched the Corral, but couldn't find exactly what I was looking for...
I'm looking into getting a harness for my '92 to help keep me in my seat while I AutoX. I ran my first AutoX about 2 months ago and this was a huge problem for me. So for the time being, I just want something to keep me secure and stationary.
I have been tossing around the idea of two different harnesses right now:
1. Schroth Rallye 4 ASM
perks - Bolts to rear passenger seatbelt tie-down locations, can be disconnected if needed to use OEM 3-pt harness
2. Corbeau 4-pt harness and harness bar
From a quick glance at the corbeau website, it appears their seatbelts may attach in the same fashion.... "somewhere in the rear of the vehicle."
So let me ask this since I am not 100% familiar... What is the purpose of the harness bar? To prevent compression of your spine if in a crash?
I just watched the CJ Pony Parts video on installing the Corbeau seats and harness bar and the harnesses get tied around the harness bar. Is it preferred to do it this way over bolting them to the floor in the rear?
As far as the rules go....
1. 2016 SCCA Solo rules section 3.3.1 states.....
"Seat lap belts are required in all cars and must be installed in cars with passive
restraint systems that do not include a lap belt. Installation and the use
of shoulder belts or harnesses is strongly recommended"
2. 2015 NHRA rules section 10:5 states ....
"A quick-release, 3-inch-minimum-width driver restraint system,
with a 2-inch crotch strap, meeting SFI Spec 16.1 or a 2-inch-minimum-width driver restraint system, with a 2-inch crotch
strap meeting SFI Spec 16.5 is mandatory in all cars in
competition required by the rules to have a roll bar or a roll
A roll bar is only needed on cars 11.49 or quicker.
Thanks for your info!
