Default Mach V Harness Bar for GR cars



The Mach V Motorsports harness bar allows you to mount race-type four- or five-point harnesses in your 2008+ Impreza, WRX, or STI. It is constructed from high-strength steel, precision TIG-welded right in the Mach V facility. Thoughtful details like counter-rotating support bars (spin them to adjust the length) and custom precision-machined hardware mean it fits perfectly.


Note: The pic above does not show the little "belt guide" bars that loop over the harnesses, as in the first pic. Production bars DO have them, as shown below.

The bar mounts using the factory shoulder-belt and seat mounts. All required hardware is included. You supply the harnesses.

Looks like a nice product, I like how the support bars are to the outside of the seats, will make for an easier install for sure.

I have the RI bar, but this thing is also purdy!

Sparco already makes a bar for the GD car, but not for the GR, so we did that one first.

What are your views of using an 5 /6 point harness w/o a roll hoop?

Perhaps you are referring to the worry that if the car rolls over you'll be tightly strapped into your seat and, assuming the greenhouse collapses, you'd end up with the entire car standing on your head.

I've heard this argument a lot, but it's a little bit like arguing that a regular three-point belt may keep you trapped in the car if the car goes into a lake, so you shouldn't wear it. My point is that in the vast majority of situations, having a full harness is going to be safer that not having one. The small risk of a rollover crash does not outweigh the benefits in all other situations.

Of course, having a full cage is safer still, but that involves much more major modification to the car -- the harness bar allows you to use a four-point harness without doing any permanent modifications to the car.

Does anyone know if it is safe to use harnesses with the stock seats? That area is not reinforced like it is on aftermarket seats, and I am not sure I would want to take a chance.

I've never heard of any structural problem with the stock seats.

Did you know? The first modern shopping mall in the United States was the Westminster Arcade in Providence, RI. It was built in 1828. (It's been closed since 2008 for refurbishing.)
