Anyone running harnesses in a R35

Im thinking about investing in a set of driver harnesses to help support me thru the corners a bit better...

Anyone else running them and interested in the brackets/fixings employed to do this.

I would like to get a set with those spring clip brackets that are removable for road use.

Thanks ...wayne.

I move around in the seat too much and would benefit from a harness. I did some research a couple of months ago, not much available locally that I could find. Could also use the harness bar to mount a camera on.

This was about the best I could find:

Nissan GT-R News - GTRBlog.com | Speedware Motorsports Harness Bar for Nissan GT-R

buy here

NISSAN GT-R HARNESS BAR Arai, Sparco, Bell, Alpinestars Race Gear Distributor

There was a Sparco bar, but from my research it was the same one as an Evo that happened to fit and it made marks on the rear seats.

I looked into harnesses but couldnt be arsed with the hassle when using on the road.

Use a CG-Lock every day and works very well on track too.

Very clever device.

I think im in the same position as you mate. (chair)

I have the same balance problems, poor trunk muscle stability in cornering/junctions etc

I have one of these CRELLING HARNESSES
not perfect but helps alot. model 19 i think.

I tied a piece of nylon strap to the seat rail at the front of the seat with a loop which i feed the lap strap thru as it was rising up towards my chest as standard

Some interesting ideas here....i do not have support issue's with road driving, but giving it max beans round donington or silverstone gives my arms a good workout...

May well try to CG lock for a quick cost effective trial.

Personally I love the CG-Lock.

It anchors your midriff exactly where you need it to stop you sliding side to side in the seat. You can still lean forward for other controls unlike a harness and track or road it works perfectly.

I also witnessed first hand a crash in which the car rolled onto its roof and the driver was wearing a cg-lock. Afterwards he said he'd definitely had injuries to his head or neck without it as he would have dropped onto the roof.

After that incident I was sold.

Very very worthwhile.

Anders, spend a little time sitting in your seat and clipping/unclipping your seatbelt with the cg-lock installed at first.

The adaptor has a little lever which allows the belt to run through the lock and once you get the knack of it, it makes undoing the belt much easier.

Update: Easy to fit and does what it says on the tin! Went for a drive on a quiet road, lobbed on the brakes for an emergency stop and didn't slide forward.
