    I don't see how it would stop your shoulders being crushed in an accident with the hard-points being below the shoulder levels. Is this certified by the NHRA? Am I missing something?

    no it's not certified. It is just for "spirited" driving in a car with no cage. My car is currently only a 13 second car. With the mods I am doing maybe high 12's. No cage required at those speeds but I'm just looking for a little extra over the factory lap belt

    Don't know much about NHRA certification , but everything is better then a lap belt.
    Maybe its better to mount the rear end of those belts to the package tray ??

    I'm sure they are not NHRA approved but at the speeds and times I am running they don't require anymore belts than what came with the car. They probably would be better than a lap belt, I just found these and they looked like an option. thought i'd get you guys input on whether they look safer or propose a hazard. I'm guessing the most likely crash would be hitting the retaining wall but if worst case scenario, the car flipped would they be safer? Would a standard 3 point type belt like a modern car be better? They make kits for those but I need to weld a nut into the roof area to install one.
