Default Racing Harness

Finally had my roll bar put in the car and now I need a harness to go with it.
I was thinking 5 point, even if I don't install the crotch strap right now at least I'll have it down the road.
Is it worth it to spend the extra money and buy a cam lock one over the traditional latch style?
Pull down, or pull up?
Any brands stand out?
I have no experience with them whatsoever so any input has value.

Get a Cam lock. Fuck screwing around with the latch style those are a pain in the ass compared to the Cam lock. Makes belting in and out much quicker. I just put a 5pnt gforce harness in Lx a little over a month ago I have zero complaints the 4 outings at the track I've used it. Was only $150 @ Jegs or Summit. Pull down style is easier to use. I am out of my harness before I make the turn on the big end of the track.

When I belt in, I found that it's easier to put the shoulders in the cam first, then the lap belts and leave the crotch for last. It was a struggle when starting with the crotch belt and working up.

Did it come with slip overs for the shoulders? Only reason I ask is because I drive the car quite often and just wont want it to be too uncomfortable on the shoulders if it is at all to begin with.

To be DOT legal you will have to retain your stock seat belts for Street use.

Have you ever been hassled for that before? Not something I'm really worried about since I've never been pulled over in it in the 6 years I've had it.

No it did not, but you can buy their velcro pads separately for 20 bux a pair.

I also went with Gforce harnesses, except I chose 6 point.

I went with pull up style. It's a little easier to tighten I think.

I doubt a cop is really going to notice, but the right ones night, and you wouldn't be legally wearing a seatbelt.

I've never been hassled about my harness and get a camlock. The camlock makes the difference between driving the car for small errands and not due to it being a pain in the ass if it were a standard latch.

we use a latch style in the rx7.. I hate it. We are switcing to camlock.

Make sure you are using the crotch strap as otherwise in an accident you will submarine under your lap belt.

As much as I'd like to tear it apart I just don't have the time to do it with the baby and work. I asked Nick if he can do some of the things I've been neglecting. The hope is that come this time next year I'll be out and hunting 8's but for now I have a little dude that needs my attention.
