    Just wondering how most folks connect a 4 point racing harness? Do you use your sim frame as the connection points or are there other alternatives.

    Thanks,

    The simplest and most common way for most sims is to attach the two lap belts directly to the bottom frame and use a spring between the two shoulder straps and the bottom frame.

    But members such as @SeatTime have gone even further and created motion driven harness that loosen and tighten in response to motion.

    I like to strap in good to feel the motion better, to better move with the rig so, attachment directly to the Motedis rig (extruded aluminium) for me. Gives me the best experience.

    I agree. Ive tried a spring system but prefer attaching the belts directly to the seat frame so as to be nice and tight in the seat.

    You mean without springs?
