Not true. I can reach everything on my dash except the glovebox. Being a pita to put on? Not really true there either. This might be because Im a scrawny little twit BUT, I havent had any problems at all.
The problem I have had with stock seatbelts is on impacts, they put all the force to one shoulder where these harnesses spread the the impact more evenly. Regular seatbelts have ( in the past ) caught people around the throat/neck and left people with perminent injuries. You can also slide out of the open side of a seatbelt and not have your forward momentum stopped.
I find the harnesses to be more comfortable myself.
And they look good too. If your vehical is fast enough, its sometimes required to have them or you will be tossed off the track. It all adds to the vehicals 'image' as well. When I corner around turns or go out drifting, I LIKE being planted in the seat without being forced out from behind the wheel by the G's.
My only dilema.. seeing if Skot can fit in them when he drives Lexi next :D
