So I had my Exige seat on the operating table last night, Dremel in hand ready to cut my 6-pt sub harness hole and decided to stop based on the placement of the seat bottom crossmember. Using Schroth's guidelines of putting the slot directly in line with my groin, the ideal slot location for me is about an inch behind the front of the crossmember (on the body of the crossmember, so that's a no go). Several forum members have said locating the slot behind the crossmember is better than in front of it. My main concerns are comfort and safety. It seems that with that setup I might need to wear a cup to avoid discomfort with the harness properly tightened since there will be rearward tension on the sub belts. And in a crash, if my pelvis slides forward, I'm picturing a painful, direct groinal impact. I've heard that the load gets spread across your thighs, but I don't see how since the straps will be right next to each other/overlapping (using the sys.6.pack). For those who have their sub harness slot behind the crossmember, is this not the case in practice?
