Probably the best bang for the buck out there are the G-force harnesses that tend to run around $130-$140 for the cam-locks (less for the latch-n-links). Make sure whatever you get is FIA certified (not SFI) which should last you a good five years until you need to replace them.

If you aren't actually racing door to door such as autocross, there is probably no requirement on belt dates. Get some out of date SFI belts (manufactured more than 2 years ago), you can often find them new and for half price. There is nothing wrong with them, not an old "style" or "technology". SFI belts are only allowed to be used for 2 years after manufacture date. Why is another topic. I sold some brand new in the box Simpson cam lock 6 points for $75 on ebay a couple months back.

If you are doing door to door and need to be in date, G-Force like Bill said are a good value belt.

Crow, Pyrotect, Deist, and G-force are quality at a good price. Crow can also be rewebbed(check with other manuf)

Some of the HPDE and TimeTrial groups will check belt dates and don't like seeing anything older than 5 years (regardless if it's SFI or FIA).

I've never heard of Auto-X people caring. In fact that's where I've seen a lot of good-but-out-of-date belts end up.

Looks like Gforce can also

You can save a few bucks this way.

+1. I got a set of G-Force camlocks for Christmas. I got the 2008 build date and FIA labels, so they'll be good for me until Dec. 2012. They cost about $140 if I recall.

The hardware is very nice. Good quality. And they are one of the most popular brands on the grid, so you have a nice customer base from which to solicit opinions.

Rewebbing is a definite bonus.

Oh, and while we're on the subject, does anyone know for sure if Sabelt has a rewebbing program? My current belts have expired this year and I need to have them freshened/replaced. A quick google seems to indicate that they did at one point, but stopped the program several years ago.

Thanks,

Also, can any of the racers here comment on the differences between the 5, 6 and 7 point harnesses. I currently run 5 point Sabelts, but if I have to replace them I'll probably go with at least a 6-point. I was looking at the 7-point rigs and was wondering what the advantage of the extra webbing would be? I'm running a Kirkey Intr. Roadrace seat if that matters.

Thanks again,
