Since we have upgraded our C8’s wheels, tires, brakes, and suspension, the car is starting to turn some seriously fast lap times (1:52’s at Buttonwillow CW 13). We found that perhaps the thing that was now making the car difficult to drive was that it was pulling so many G’s it was hard to stay in the seat! The C8 has pretty decent seats from the factory but when faced with racecar-like G forces, the side support was nothing like a modern race containment seat. We decided to add a 4-point harness to the car to help hold us in during hard driving. The harness had to not interfere with the factory seat belts for street driving and had to have the proper angles to work correctly. We opted to use a harness bar and belt mounts from Peitz Performance with a clip-in racing harness from Simpson Race Products to do the job.
The Peitz Performance harness mounts and harness bar kit comes pretty complete for a close to bolt-in solution to safely add a harness to a car that must also keep its stock seat belts.
The sort of uh, phallic-looking things are actually the mounts that your racing harness clips into. You will see how they install in a bit.
This is the high-grade hardware for the harness bar and mounts. This still is all stronger than the OEM hardware.
The kit even comes with a template and trim pieces for cutting your interior panel for the harness bar.
