svt harness

Has anybody installed a harness in their Focus SVT? I regularly run at road courses and with the factory belts its like you are sitting on a pile of marbles. Any suggestions?

belts.

before i installed my roll cage i used a bar across b pillars. you can mount them off floor but that is not good in because of the potential for spinal compression problems.

I got a 5 point harness, and I mount rear straps to rear seat belt bolts, submarine belt to front seat bolt, right lap belt to right seat belt clicker bolt, and left lap belt to floor, probably not best, but It holds me in place great, with the stock seatbelt I spent most of time on track fighting the seat to stay in place. When I put cage in I will change mounting points. How do you address the spinal compresions issues? To me it seems like that could happen no matter were you mount them.

Not to sound dumb but, what do you guys need roll cages for? Show? Or do you acctually race? Where do you get a roll cage? Or do you make em? I have seen one on Steeda, looks kinda cool.

No, the roll cage is for racing. I know on a mustang it makes them handle alot better, by stiffening chassis, I suspect it will be the same on the focus. And with as many times as I have went off track (usually due to other people) or just hitting a tree or wall, its a very good safety item. Autopower makes both bolt in and weld in kits, or you could have one custom made pretty easily.
