Expire? I don't know that they are legal for any competition series which uses an expiration date. I'm open to education.

All race harnesses have expiration dates when they have to be replaced when used for competition that require it. These definitely do because I have the driver side and its date is 2017.

What racing organizations still allow 4-point belts?

I know our drag strip here even on test and tune days require a 4 point+ harness once your pass is fast enough. Also all this brand of 4 point harness can get upgraded to the 5 or 6 point so the expiration would come into play much more.

Just curious why this type of "seat belts" are imposed an expiration date while regular seat belt will not expire?

Can someone share more info/advices? Thanks!

If you're running an SCCA class or using them for sanctioned races, the expiration date is valid..... for street use, who cares ? They're still better than regular seat belts !

Thanks for confirming they are still better than regular seat belts (that's what i thought).

But still, why SCCA (or race events...) regulates these in the fashion of "expiration date"? Are these race seat belts made of different material (than regular ones) that will degrade the performance / spec from time to time? Like a never used 5-yr NOS tire won't perform as SPEC'd when they are new?

Ok - this is a FS thread - so we shouldn't really be discussing the merits of a harness vs 3-point.

But a 4-point in a street car is for impressing your friends and 'scaring' your girlfriend. It restricts your movements to a point where it makes it unsafe for normal traffic, IMO. If you're driving aggressive enough to need a harness on the street, you're being incredibly unsafe.

Back to yelling at kids to get off my lawn.
