Well. I ~was~ being honest, I only wrote what I heard ~on the phone~. Yea, we're getting strung along, and the season is approaching. I was going to follow up in first week of March, but now I don't know if it's worth regurgitating any BS from that call. So it goes with vaporware.

As for Rallye-3s or 4s, I know 4s work. IMO 3s would be safer, however, I don't know if you can keep the rear OEM seat belts operational at the same
time when you connect the Rallye-3 to the C pillar, because of the roller assembly. I don't mind having a 3" belt and buckle/attachment sticking out here and there, but I don't want to have to install and uninstall a Rallye for every event so I can have operational rear seat belts.

My stinky opinion is that these belts ARE safer, because my focus on driving won't be as easily disrupted by a lack of being securely fastened to the seat. This is why I am livid with NASA racing because it's (to them) a liability issue, and not a safety issue, even though I think they disguise it as a safety issue. I have a lot of respect for Schroth getting these Rallyes DOT approved and I have a ton of respect for the DOT itself.
