LMFAO WTF


for road use i'd go for 3 point bro... not as though you're really going to be in a position to need them and i expect you will regret it as they are a lot of hassle just for road use lol

to be honest i still managed to use my back seats when i fitted them to my r200, used 3 points and bolted 1 to the seat subframe, 1 to the original lower mounting of the seatbelt, and 1 to the mounting point of the centre seatbelt (had to remove the centre seatbelt so i didnt need longer bolts)

Completely pointless and non functional on standard seats. If anything theyre dangerous.

Your headrest bars are no way strong enough to take up your force in the event of an accident!

sorry but i cant agree, i personally felt safer in my harnesses when i had them than i did in standard seat belts, (having said that i did have proper fixed back buckets aswell:)) also, i'd have no problem removing the factory fitted airbag to fit a nicer steering wheel. suppose its all down to personal opinion again :)

ok airbags, not the best thing, mine didnt even go off, and can and have killed rather than save..

but harnesses, unless you have a car like johno's then what the point... The pretensioners are there for a reason, to stop you breaking your shoulders in a crash, most rally drivers and people with harnesses in a crash either badly bruise or break there collar bones... with harnesses

my dad had some big crashes with harnesses on when he rallied and he didnt get v badly injured... bit of whiplash in his neck i guess but nothing much and had some big crashes, like in a escort cosworth goin flat out and then the servo failed for the brakes or something meaning no brakes heading straight into a brick wall lol

Absolutely correct, Harnesses FTW for safety but an absolute pain in the ring on a road car. I honestly wouldn't bother. They are more likely to cause an accident than help out

well i would imagine harnesses are a lot safer when going at faster speeds.

sure its not worth the hassle for road use unless you are wanting the 'rally look'
