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.

[QUOTE= certified ratings are found on cloth tabs inside the helmet usually part of some lining. [/QUOTE]
Yeah it does not have a snell sticker, I called Bell helmets which couldn't verify it and Snell foundation couldn't either. so I guess i am now looking for one. but is Sa2005 the same as M2005

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.
