Helmet looks nice. Should be helpful with the sun in the summer.

On a side note: Travis do you have problems with your helmet hitting the roof? I'm 6'2", and have problems with helmet clearence (sp?). Any suggestions on helmet that might help?

i'm 6'3'', so i feel your pain. and yes, there are issues. with a helmet, i have to slouch down just a lil bit to make it comfortable.......but it's worth the sacrifice to get to spend time on the track.

I feel you guys. I am 6'2" in an S13 fstback and I scrape my head on turns in normal driving ! In autocross, it's a joke. My head pokes out of the sunroff and I still have to tilt it.
And sliding on the leather seats doesn't help either :(

LMAO--I'm 5'10" as well, and auto-x'ing when my 6'5" bf is riding w/ me has got to be a hilarious sight--2 helmets sticking out of the sunroof!! When we're w/o helmets and sunroof closed, he still has to lay the seat back a bit and slouch and my head hits the roof if I sit perfectly straight in the seat (even with it reclined a bit). But I still LOVE my car!!

i keep mine shield off usually, it just fogs up. but, for sunny events, i may pick up a smoked shield like that...

does anyone else have fogging problems?

yeah, I do...

Travis is your new shield that kind that deflects fog or whatever? I know I've seen them somewhere.

no, it's not one of those fancy schmancy anti-fog deals. i only have problems with fogging when the shield is completely closed, if you leave it cracked (ala paul tracy) it's not a problem at all.

Done that too, sometimes have trouble seeing, (sorta like split vision at times). Its usually all the way down or all the way up. Majority of the time being up.

Edit: sometimes use the shades while wearing the helmet, not the most comfortable thing to do but it works.
