Question 1: Has anyone installed a harness bar in their 2011 GT500 coupe yet?
Question 2: Do you know if a bar from a 2003 Cobra will fit the same shoulder belt mounts?
My race red is due in mid August and my first track event is at Road America on August 30th. I need to have my "go fast safe" parts in stock when I bring it home for a quick install.
Question 3: I want to down grade from the stock 19" and 20" wheels to 18"x 9.5" wheels all around for road racing. Should I be getting the 2010 convertible wheels so I know they clear the calipers?
Question: What is the widest tire I can run up front? Will 275/40s be OK?
Answer 1: Do not use a harness bar. God forbid you have a roll over however if you did with a harness bar in place you can't slide down and the roof would crush your head and neck. Stick with the 3 point for your first track event.
Answer 2: The 2003 harness bar will not fit in an S-197.
Answer 3: I'm fairly certain that a 2007 GT500 rim will fit on a 2011 and they are 18 x 9.5 with the correct offset and back spacing.
Answer 4: Yes, you can run 275/40/18's up front.
