I have recently acquired a harness bar.
Someone mentioned to me that it may not be legal in stock
classes. While I can certainly expect an exception in my local
region, in regional or national events if it in fact is not
legal I would expect weeny protests.
This of course assumes a) I go to a regional or national event,
and b) I win.
Neither of these are likely to happen, certainly not anytime soon,
but I'm still curious.
I have a 97 M3 Sedan, a fairly stiff car. Is a harness bar that
bolts between the shoulder belt mount points with downrods to the
outside rear of each front seat legal? There is no triangulation
involved, which says to me that it does nothing to stiffen the car.
If the car were to implode at the tops of the B pillars, -MAYBE-
it would help resist that, but the bar should just flex along with
the car in any normal flex. It's not like the tops of the B pillars
get any closer together during body flex, right?
What do you think?
