And another thing...

Ok, so G-Force no longer makes the GF-5000 camlocks with FIA rating. They are discontinued. This pushed me into the GF-7000 Pro-Series camlocks in my quest for a 5-year FIA rating.

Got the belts in, so far look good. Nice webbing "rolls" at the ends to give you something to grab. And nice little webbing strips on the buckles to help loosen them. I also like the 2" crotch strap, much more comfortable than 3".

These are the new "low-stretch" material too. Probably a good thing with my non-airbag setup.

The only downside is the webbing seems significantly stiffer than the older belts. It's much more like OEM seatbelt webbing, only it's 3 time as thick, so you can imagine the stiffness.

I'll post more after I install them.

They do come with an FIA label, so *should* be good for 5 years. Though I hear there is a change in the wind.

Word has it SFI is pushing for 1 month "best before" dates.


Not much to report. I'm pretty happy with them, the only downside is, as I mentioned before, the webbing is really stiff.
