Want to safely use a 4 point harness in the car for trackdays, but after reading the no no's of mounting the harnesses using the mounts under the rear bench, I found this....

Clicky

I'm only an occasional trackday'er, but wanna be as safe as poss without having to install a cage.

Opinions please.

Thanks.

PS: If they're any good......GROUP BUY?

I've bolted mine into the rear seat belt points under the rear bench, I really don't see the problem with there, admitedly higher would be better, most friends use a top mount rear strut brace to mount the harness to.

I'd rather be using my points than that bar, it really doesn't look particular strong or have great mounting points.

Hi Bruce....but then you risk the fact that your shoulders and spine could take the impact, no? Well that's what I read and it makes sense.

I wasn't intending to mount onto the bar, but the use the bar as a pivot point then down to the rear bench to finish. Sorry, didn't make that clear.

Your head and shoulders will always take the forces of sudden Deceleration unless yo fit a hans device or simular,
The rear seat belt mount points are made to take these forces and are reinforced/Strengthened, Mine are mounted there my mate an his group N rally car are mounted there (MSA Logbooked) so really it's the best mounting points.
The only oher place I would mount Harnesses would be to a Special designed rollcage with Harness attachment points

Any further comments on these guys? Found a pic of one mounted in a Skyline and it looks pretty damn sturdy to me.



Here's another one (not in a Skyline), but shows the harnesses mounted.

if you're worried about rear seatbelt mounts not being strong enough then drill and plate the floor where you want to attach them.... use big washers so you spread the load
