Simpson 6pt Harness belts

[5/14/2000] Reviewed by Stuart Jones -

Applicable to '90 - '97

6pt, 3" (?) safety harnesses. I bought the "Latch/Link" style, but cam-lock are also available for more $$.

Harnesses make for an easy way to fall in love with your car all over again. At their tightest settings, they are fairly uncomfortable when you're just sitting in the car. However, when you start cornering, that discomfort fades away as the belts keep you absolutely welded to your seat. Gone now are the days of having to wedge my knees against the door and center console for stability; now all I need to do is to splay my knees enough to clear the bottom of the wheel. With the harnesses on, it is much easier to work on threshold braking.

I use the harnesses in my daily driving about 50% of the time, though not at the absolute maximum tension. The extra time spent fastening the belts pays off in the first cloverleaf ramp you take. )

Do NOT buy any harness belts if you do not have a REAL rollbar!

Simpson Five Point Camlock Belt

[11/19/99] Reviewed by Tim Wood -

Applicable to '90 - '97 '99 + 1.6 liter 1.8 liter

The Five Point Cam lock belt is a racing harness by Simpson Racing. It has the three inch wide blets and 2 inch submarine belt. You can just order certain parts of the belt or just get the whole five point set-up. Comes in a variety of colors, styles, and lengths for diffent cars and different racing set-ups.

It was a little hard to install, but with patients and a little ingenuity, it can be done. With a roll bar the shoulder belts are very simple to install. The lap belt take the time and effort, and the submarine belt you have to bolt to the floor or to the seat.

Very, very, good. It is great on holding you down in the seat if you have a small butt or if your autocrossing. I wear it for everyday driving just for the secure feeling and it makes the bumps feel a little bit smalller(with lowered racing springs) with out you body moving as far. This is a must for the enthusiast who has to go fast or for the accident prone!!!
