while I definitely commend your workmanship and detail on this (honestly, this looks sick and very well done), I don't see the logic in sticking a harness bar on a car thats just a bit too portly and nose heavy for real track use. You've now lost your 4 door practicality and gained... well... dunno what you've gained except a slick looking harness bar. In any case, lets see those track vids :)

i agree that it would look better with "racing" (or racing style at least) buckets installed in the car. it's hard to run a harness correctly with stock seats (many track organaztions don't even allow it), as the stress put on the seat by the harness (when you crash) is not what the factory designed and can lean to serious injuries.

i will say that just because the speed is heavy doesn't mean it can't be tracked by any means....it's just that the setup isn't all there yet in my eyes. but the car is typcal of what you see on the market, so good job designing the bar.

I've seen these for regular 6's on ebay...I wonder if they would bolt up to a speed6, don't see why not.
yours looks nice for homemade, get it powdercoated and it'll be sweet.

My thoughts as well. There are actually a few I've seen, and haven't even searched, for the Mazda 6 03-08 body. I don't see why it wouldn't fit a Speed6, and if not, i'm sure it would with very minimal, worthwhile modifications.

Great work OP. I'd powdercoat it black, but that's me..

an oh shit bar that will knock out peoples teeth and more if anyone sits in the back!

if it's for sure, make sure it's out unless you are going to a show (and never have anyone in the back with it installed), and if you go to a show with it, and there are no buckets....you won't really get real points.
