    Do those have the 2" shoulder straps to work with a HANS?

    I was originally thinking of going that route since I always wear a HANS when on track. But a few things changed my mind. Taking a walk through the paddock/pits I didn't see any pros that were using the 2" shoulder straps. Next I figured in the event I let a coach or someone else help me shake the car down they would need to have a HANS in order to go on track. The 3" leaves me with more flexibility in that respect. Third reason was that the HANS was specifically designed to work with the 3" belts. According to the company they will work with either 2" or 3" but the original testing was done on 3". I figured if its not broken, don't fix it...

    They will fit with 3", just dig into your neck. I use a Hans in the E30 chump-mobile, and we have the 3" shoulders. Not a big deal, bit it is a bit annoying. I'll let you know how it goes after the 24 hour. If my neck isn't rubbed raw by then it's probabaly not that big of a deal.

    Chris, maybe check into the mounting of the straps. That is the premise behind the 2" but usually the 3" should just ride along the lip of the HANS
