    do you think this would work?

    if you would, could someone go to vividracing.com and check something out for me? it should be on the home page and is called the Speedware Stainless Harness Bar. what are your thoughts about it? How do you think it would work compared to a strut bar? i think it is mostly for show, but that is my opinion

    I thought the harness bar was for seat harnesses as a replacement for seatbelts, and doesn't have the same function as a strut tower brace?

    I believe Ivan (iv30) has one...he'd be good to ask...

    Yeah, it lets you run harnesses. Definitely not for show - for safety. You can run harnesses w/out a cage which is dangerous without a helmet anyway. But I believe it mounts in the center of the cabin - so while it would stiffen things up a bit it wouldn't be as much as a tower bar. On the other hand the Rex is very stiff to start out with and doesn't need any bars on stock suspension - maybe a rear for the wagon but thats it IMHO. Be aware that rear passengers would be in a very dangerous position with this installed. It's in the perfect place to hit their head on in a crash.

    With the harness bar in, you shouldn't be carrying rear passengers. They will be very uncomfortable. As for the part, it's gorgeous. I may put one in my street car.
