Have any of you guys thought of putting these in your car instead of seat belts? Just wondering if its possible and how hard it might be. Thanx

first off, unless the shoulder straps are mounted correctly (like from a roll cage) you WILL break your shoulders if you get in a serious accident, Second, it is against the law to drive a street car without wearing a DOT approved seatbelt, and racing belts are not DOT approved, and third, are you really going to go fast enough to need a set?

pita has some good points.

I used to drive Extreme Rock Crawling 4X4's with a full in cab cage.

Now, I am not going to trust something mounted to the floor boards. If you don't have a cage, the mounting, IMHO, is not worth the money vs your safety.

These people make some real nice stuff. I ran thier 5 point system, with the in cab cage, PRP Suspension Seats and full cage in my Offroader.

In a roll, it was the best mod, besides the cage, I ever bought!!

Trust me, it's a major pain to get in and out of the car with the belts in a daily driver. I drove my truck while it was still Street Legal. Most people I have seen, including my self, used to just "flip" the shoulder straps over thier shoulders for comfort and ease of getting in and out of the car. Just defeats the whole purpose in my opinion.
