I hope you're joking.

Cool cool! I hope to get one soon! I'm having trouble picturing how a 4-pt belt works though, enlighten please!

4 point belts are no good for anything but autocross.

IF i had been wearing a 4-point belt when i tagged the wall at summit i would have been in a world of hurt.

I can see how they would give good left to right support, but front to back and you're fooked!

Uh, yes. And the schroth belts are 2", which wont be as good as a proper 3" 5 point belt. (6 point is really what you should have).

Without the sub belt, the lap belt can ride up and crush your organs in a frontal impact.

I'm going to try to figure out how to modify the stock seat to mount a sub belt properly.... because wrapped around the front of the seat isnt the best way to do it either.

yea, I read cc.com too. I'm still not all that convinced that when properly worn and seated correctly a 4pt belt is going to 'submarine' on you. Regardless, they are my autox belts. I'm not buying 6pts until I get seats. I even had them installed at summit pt but didn't wear them.

Autocross those are fine.

But dont wear those belts on track. I hit the wall at summit hard enough to give me whiplash - i am fairly certain thats hard enough to submarine under the belts.

Its not just cc.com - its everywhere i've read anything about safety on track - crash data has also shown that a 6 point belt will reduce the impact on your body over a 5 point.
