I don't get it. why do you want a custom belt? who doesn't make a 6-point harness with a 2" lap belt and a camlock? Every Scroth 6-point belt other than the clubman is like that. If you can find those things in a $130 belt already, then why are you posting? thats about 1/3 the price of most other 6-points. go ******* buy it.

You are pretty damn close to full retarded right now.

Go buy a Schroth Rallye 4 ASM and make sure that you route the breakaway so that it ruptures your ******* when you lose it at a blistering 35mph when you hit the only lamp post in the parking lot.

you can call simpson for what you want custom made. they don't do the whole dealer makes a custom belt thing. i can tell you it's going to cost more than 130 bucks.

I know the topic of cam locks releasing was brought up. We have had some issues with Corbeau cam locks popping open. I personally experienced this on a corbeau cam lock. driving down the highway and "pop" my harness is undone. Got home cut them out and threw them in the trash. That was the last cheap harness I ever bought.

Can I blow your budget by $10?

Speaking of interesting, someone is selling a G-Force camlock belt in the For Sale section, Leafy. It has your name on it.

TLDR: Have Cobra Sebring. Can't get it fit in the car or on me. Interested in Racetech 4009HR. Have you seen it in a miata?

Question: Has anyone seen a Racetech RT4009HR in a miata before? Does it fit with a decent amount of rake to it?

Purpose: Enduro racing w/ 2 hour driver stints.
Want: I want to move up to a composite halo seat.

Frame to Fit: I'm 5'10"ish and 185. 34/36 waist or so. Average proportions on frame.

Background:
My first seat was a Ultrashield Pro Road Race 10°. Love the way I fell INTO the seat, the fit around the waist, ribs etc. I had the entire seat mounted at about 20°. It was perfect.

Ultrashield Catalog - Road Race Seats - Standard Road Race Seats - Pro Road Race Seat

I went to the local SCCA Majors event in April/May and sat in several seats, and decided on the Cobra Sebring (not the ultralite shown in the picture).


Sebring Pro - Cobra Seats
However in 2008ish there was a design change that apparently made my 2014 seat not the same as the 2007 seat I sat in. I don't fit in the new design.

Current State:
I wasn't afraid to notch the tunnel, so I cut it out and still can't get the seat to clear the main hoop gusset (because the halo is too wide), or square with the wheels/pedals while still far enough back to not be "on the wheel". I don't like how the shoulder wings push my shoulders forward (awkard) and I feel like I'm on the seat and not in it. When I pull the cushions out, I'm down in the seat (not comfortable though) but then I'm too low for my harnesses to be installed correctly (below my harness bar). Need to get rid of the Sebring quickly and find something else that WORKS!

Future State:
While at the Majors, I sat in a Racetech 19 (that's all of the model code he knew) and I liked it. Has anyone see one in a miata with a spec miata type cage? Did it have a decent amount of rake to it? I would prefer first hand experience over conjecture.
]

Racetech RT4009HR : Racetech USA
I'm guessing the seat is 4009 because I don't remember it having the air vent like the 4019 did.

I've got a question for you . I'm 6.0 220 with 36 waist, wide shoulders and I found a seat that fits me well ( ultra-shield road race ) but after reading the possible spinal in jury's with aluminum seat with back braces .Ive kind of steered myself to a seat like a sparco sprint 5 . Now I know I can't fit a sparco sprint 5 due to my size ,so my question really is .... What is a good seat that will fit me and still fit in the miata ?

Currently using a Cobra Suzuka on GarageStar seat bracket. Racequip 3" 6 point camlock harness. Seat is very comfortable, but isn't lining up to the steering wheel (about 1" off center) which isn't the end of the world. I think my seat is the wider version so it's not ideal for me (28 waist size).

I have a brand new Momo Supercup which I'm going to install when I have some spare time. Tried sitting in it and it seemed really nice. Won't know for sure until it's installed.

Anyone know what non-boxed in seats might be safer than stock? Like the OMP Style, or the Recaro Specialist? Just where you can turn 90 degrees to get out.

I dont see why an aluminum seat cant be safe. Hundreds of roundy rounders in marginally or well installed aluminum seats crash every year and normally in significantly more violent crashes than you typically get on a road course and there's never been a big outcry against the aluminum seats in that community. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on install and I dont see how it would be unsafe.

ANY seat can be installed in an unsafe manner.

Personally, I love my US SM16. Just came off 3 solid days of track time in it. Fits like a glove.
