Has anyone installed a seat belt harness bar?

So let us all be more explicate: If you are concerned about implementing a higher level of safety, are not concerned about stripping the interior of your car somewhat, and have the budget to do so then purchase a full roll cage.Otherwise a good harness bar will allow you to effectively use a good 6 pt harness system and a HANS device.

I assume this opinion is from first hand personal experience? Have you seen how the Maximum Motorports roll bar bolts into the S197 using Grade 8 bolts that are twice the size of the factory bolts? Have you seen the B pillar gussets the factory uses compared to the MM gussets? MM has been producing roll bars for the S197 since '05. I've never heard of one that failed or "sheared" off in an accident, but would be interested in seeing some examples. If these bolts were going to shear off, your factory wheels studs (I use ARP) would have sheared off long ago. If you get the bar with diagonal brace, there's no way you're not more protected in a rollover incident than going without one as many people do on HPDE days wearing the three point factory restraints. The upside is most of the S197s I've seen roll have had decent structural integrity in the roof area above the driver.....the passenger sides not so much.DGRacing said:The bolts will shear in any major collision situation. Before you get serious about driving or enter open passing groups please use a weld in or just skip the risky bolt in kind entirely.
