I've been running a 5 point harness on the track for some time and trust me it's not for show. It's functional and set up to be safe.
If you have a lot of money and wanna get an aftermarket seat then go ahead. But you do not need a hole to route the sub belt.

Ya I've been in a car with a 4 point and its dumb to even think to put that in your car. I even talked to a guy with the 4 point Taketa harness in his heavily modded s2k and asked him how he like it and he said it's sides up your torso when you tighten the shoulder belts.. You get into an accident and the lap belt which is suppose to lay across your hips are now across your ribs. I think you get the point if you get into an accident at the track how bad that would be compared to using the stock 3 point belt or a 5 point harness.
I've sat in a car around the track with the 4 point schrothe and it's just dumb, uncomfortable (because it slides up and is only a 2 inch wide belt which digs into the body) and unsafe if not set up properly imo.
How do you run the crotch belt on the stock Recaros without cutting a hole in them? I couldn't tell from your photo.

The problem I have with not having the crotch-slot (lulz), is the extra stress it puts on the submarine belt by having to go around the seat. It just doesn't seem right not having the slot in the seats...

I cant tell you Iv been in a car with both the Shitroth and that RJS one.

1) RJS one is used on a Can-AM series race car.
2) it wont cut you in half like a basted turkey on Thanksgiving.
3) it holds way better and doesnt ride up your ribs.
4) unless you bend your stock endlinks at the track...........your not really tracking your car, time to trade it in for a Camry.

The RJS harness was $185 installed and it's can-am approved....... All the installer did was fab up a brackets to bolt to the bottom of the seats. I mean they are just belts at the end of the day.

The race team it was bought from is willing to make more if there is interest.

Yup. Once you use a proper 5 point harness everything else will feel inferior. Plus the whole point of a harness to be functional and safe. Having 2 inch belts which slides up your torso will be not only a major safety concern imo but also a distraction while driving. And thats the last thing you want to have on your mind while tripoding the car.
The difference of a 2" vs 3" wide belt is huge and should be carefully considered when choosing a harness.
IMO stick with the stock 3 point belts and use a CG lock or don't waste you money on a 4 point harness.

the only good reason for 3" belts is fender to fender competition where they're required. and 5 points suck dick in comparisson to 6.
