    Reed, might want to double check the law but when I had harnesses installed in my Corvette 5 years ago I was told that it was illegal in CA to drive with a racing harness in place of a seatbelt on public roads. Didn't make any sense to me then and makes even less now. Everything in CA is illegal...

    I believe Scroth's 4-point harnesses are actually DOT legal (and a quick look at their homepage confirms that). I don't know of any 5-point or 6-point harnesses that are DOT legal, most likely because the companies concentrate on designing them for SFI and FIA certification, not DOT legality.

    I have a Scroth Quick Fit 4-point harness in my Subaru that I use when I auto-x the car. I do not use the harness when I open track the car, as I have no roll-over protection in the car and the general consensus is harness use without a rollbar is bad joo-joo.

    Re: Schroth Harness Update

    Hey guys, I autocross my V and while other drivers and passengers in my car have complained about moving around too much, I've always felt like I could brace myself alright and didn't need the extra help. Well fast forward to today, I was talking to my neighbor who is in a wheelchair. I offered to take him for a ride at the next autocross. As we talked, we realized the normal seatbelts may not be enough to keep him in place since he has limited control of his upper body as well. I figured this would be a great excuse to get a set of four point harnesses until I just looked them up and saw how expensive they are. So I guess my question is, how much do these really help? Also has anyone else purchased a set recently and if so do you know if they'd offer a discount for getting them as a pair? Finally is there someone specific I should talk to? They don't list the CTS-V application on their site, and I see from here that some customization was needed, but I guess I'm unclear on what exactly needs to be customized.

    Thanks!
