not so much. ive worked at a few high end race/fabrication shops.

5 point harness on the street? do you run a helmet and hans device too? you realize you are at an exponentially greater risk of getting whiplash in a rear end collision when you run a harness without the rest of the safety system.

Not only that, but wearing a properly fitting harness makes it hard as hell to do anything other than turn the steering wheel i.e. fudging with the radio, center console compartments, etc.
