    whatever floats your boat...all i am saying is it doesn't take much to get the car to be track ready. people tend to make too much out of it. its not a race...
    If only it was this easy with my wife, if you family will actually go out to the track thats a life time of work for me to achieve lol.

I looked it up on snell website and they listed Bell "racing star V" instead of "star V". I can't tell if they are the same? No pics on line to compare either.
    certified ratings are found on cloth tabs inside the helmet usually part of some lining.

    Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and
    Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.
    Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall,
    Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

    No. SA2005 and M2005 are two completley different tests and requirements.

    The long and short of it is that the SA rating is more for cars since it has tests for collision with rollbars, harness bars, etc, plus it must have a fire re-tardant liner.

    The M rating is more for motorcycles and do not require a fire re-tardant liner.

    Most 'driver education' groups allow the use of 'M' class helmets when you run with them. But on occasion you may run with a group that has a strict requirement that the helmet MUST BE SA rated.

    I have both, I usually like to wear my motorcycle helmet when I am in the car on track since it fits me better, and I have many different shields for it. But I always bring both in case the group requires the SA.

    There are quite a few places online to get SA2005 helmets for ~$250 shipped.

    P.S> I love trackdays. If it fits in my schedule, I'd love to join in with a bunch of you guys.
