Torso strap safe w/ side airbag?

Quick question guys, I run a G-force torso strap to help hold me in place while I AX. Some of you are probably familiar with them. They wrap around the seat about chest high. I guess my question is two fold, first in the event of a roll over would the side airbags in the seat deploy or is that only in a side impact/collision? 2nd, if they could or would deploy would having the torso strap around the seat and myself cause a problem (like sqeeze the living shit out of me)? Here is a picture of the torso strap

Re: Torso strap safe w/ side airbag?

They do not deploy in the event of a roll-over. Only on a side impact. I used to use something very similar but instead of a buckle, it was velcro. The job just fine. But a harness is still much more effective.

How is driving a 100whp car more fun than a 250whp? I KNOW! Right wheel drive.
