Default Schroth Racing Harnesses

Anyone use these? I saw one guy at the track with them and they looked really nice. Nice on the wallet too!

For somone who wants stock seats and retain the use of the rear seat would this be a good option? Is this safe?

Reasonably safe for track days and Solo. Not legal for competition that requires a 5 point belt.

I use a Schroth Profi II-Y and it's awesome in every way. Those Rallye belts look nice for what they are but I wouldn't use them for anything other than auto-x.

I would not run any harness unless its a 5/6 pt., many racing sanctions wont let you run without some sort of Anti-Submarining safety. In NASA, you can't even use a 4pt. ASM. I see that what you selected is a 3 pt. ASM but I wouldn't trust it. Someone once died on my local track using something similar to what you posted, he slid to the other side of the car.

Good info thanks everyone. The guy I met running them was at a HPDE at Carolina Motorsports Park with SCCA in Camden, SC.

Im thinking it would be a good set for me to get- I can use my stock seats, but still upgrade seats later. I mostly DD my car and still would be able to do HPDE days/auto-X with thoes. My main concern was if the 3 point was safe. (by safe I dont mean as safe as a 5/6 point system but more like you wont for sure die if you crash wearing the harness system)

AFAIK, the Schroth Rallye belts are the only DOT-approved and crash tested harnesses on the market.


The biggest factor with their safety is how well they're installed and whether or not they're worn properly. Fasten them to factory seatbelt anchors and wear them extremely tight... or don't bother.

Also, don't remove the stock belts. The Rallye harnesses stow under the seat when you're on the street.

^what he said. Schroth also has it's own patent technology regarding anti-submarining without a "crotch" belt.

We run Schroth 6 point HANS belts in our Rally car.... love them.

Thanks for the info everyone! I am starting to like these more and more. But remember I specifically am curious about the 3 point system (with my stock 02 wrx seats) Is this safe for HPDE days?

I would at least get the 4 point quick fit. Much safer, easier to install, and works with the factory seatbelt pre-tensioner. Better yet, get the quick fit pro so you can use it with a HANS device.

Agreed, been running a set for the past 4 years. Great for HPDE/Rallyx/Rally Recce. Street legal also. Think you may be able to add 5/6th point too but Check W/ HMS. Easy in/out too when you need rear seating, <1 minute per side.

Do you need a rear bar for the 4 point? If you guys can post photos of the configuration of your setup that would be sweet.

Look on the Schroth site, they have install instructions. Two of the mounting points click into the stock seatbelt anchors and the other two bolt in.

I wouldn't run it on the track. As has been said before, anything <5pt is not a good idea, even with proper mounting. Stock seat belts or 5pt with roll bar.

I have the Schroth 4pt ASM and only use it for autoX. HPDEs I use the stock seat belts.

Great idea i learned from my instructor at emra, he hasn't made the jump to a bucket in his evo X and wanted to get the most out of his stock seat-belt while being cost efficient. http://www.cg-lock.com/

Does anybody else use a CG-Lock with stock belts?
