I went Simpson when it first came out. Way better than Hans. But I also put Velcro and a cushion on the back side because it burned through my seat backing.

I noticed that on my car this past weekend, my instructor was wearing a HANS and it scratched up my passenger seat's headrest
After rewatching a video of a pretty sketchy off I had a few weeks ago a few times I think some kind of additional safety gear is on my Christmas list. I'll keep the velcro/cushion idea in mind

Yeah Hans is up top impair is more low. They both burned my recaros. Luckily I had the recaro pillow to cover it up on the daily usage lol

Wasn't track or even auto related if that is what you are wondering. Ruptured two discs while lifting weights in my younger days. Was just trying to get at that neck injuries really suck & with restraints being so accessible now do what you can to help protect your neck.

Selling my car. Change in priorities for next year, looking to spend more time with the kids doing fun stuff. I spent a lot of time this past summer working on the car and then going out to do track days without the family. Really enjoyed this thing the past 2 years, such an amazing track car.

Looking for $45k as it sits with all the stuffs, tell your friends. Hopefully find a track rat locally.

I saw your post in the one of the FB groups just now. This is what I wish I could of done had finances allowed it before I bought my E46. Though, in hindsight, didn't save any money LOL.

GLWS. If I was in a better position I'd snag this up and move my E46 on to someone else.

Gonna try and talk to the race shops around here and see if they know someone who's a good fit. Seems lots of guys that get a GT3RS or similar don't want to fully push their expensive car and look for a "cheaper" car to beat on at the track.

The thought of all the work I would need to do to part it out is depressing. And honestly this car is too good to get taken apart, someone needs it as-is.

The one in Australia? I may not have got the best quote, but with shipping costs might as well get a new set.

Because I made the mistake and it should be corrected -

The "Simpson Hybrid (S)" is the only model certified to work with a 3 point harness/belt
The "Simpson Hybrid Sport" IS NOT certified to work with a 3 point belt
