Any idea how easy/difficult of a process it is to take the seats out? Maybe if it weren't terribly difficult, one could have the bar & harnesses in the car at all times, and swap in a racing seat when it comes time to race. Hmmm...
I have the Brey bar as well, and would not trade it for anything... I have run 30 minute events (Road america) as well as larger autoX events with the bar and belts.. the belts come around the seat, and hold me in (6'1" 180 lbs)I do not use a stap in front, and I do not have any problems falling out of the belts, and would feel good about the belts holding me in and me not slipping through them.
I also have a Camaro with a 12 point cage, and belts/seats in it, so I know what it "should" feel like, and it is fine for me in the ZO6.
I did not use the brey belt mounts, instead I went for bolts that hold the seat to the rail for the rear door side, the stock belt mount for tunnel side (both in the rear) and there are some "holes" in the rail for the front... used some bolts / washers to hold the bolt in belts at those points... I have pictures if you would like to see.
as far as taking the seat in and out, it is VERY easy, 4 bolts, and you are done. I took my seat's out (driver and pass) to install the belts in this manner.
