I have been messing around before at Thunder Valley in Noble, Oklahoma with 14 second 1/4 miles car and there rule there is if u run below a 14 second 1/4 mile, u need a helmet, so i'm guessing with my mods I should easily run 13's, so where do u guys find a good used helmet for a cheap price? I could care less what it looks like, just need it for the track to drag race

Used just sounds nasty to me. I bought my last helmet at revilla.com for well under $100. They are more geared towards bikes so you just make sure it is rated for what your track requires.

LOL, i'm a tightwad on things I wont use that often, so i don't mind washing someone's dirtiness out of the helmet if it's a good deal =)

But with a helmet, even if you only need it once, it pays to know you have one that hasn't been in an accident or dropped.  Those should always be replaced....Get a new helmet.  Bell has some reasonably priced helmets, you don't have to go with their top line.

My tracks have specific requirements -  Snell 2010 or newer.    You will not want to buy a used helmet that is out of date for your tracks or that do not meet their standards.   Mine is a Zamp and I got it at Amazon and I am happy with it.  It was around $100 if I recall correctly.

OK, Thanks. According to Thunder Valley Raceway here in Noble, Oklahoma(Where we drag race)

 ANY CAR RUNNING FASTER THAN 13.99, MUST HAVE AN SFI APPROVED HELMET.

If it isn't Snell approved to their latest specs, you really don't want it anyway.  They do very rigorous testing of most quality manufacturers helmets.

The 13.99 or 100 Mph is pretty much across the board on all 1/4 mile tracks
