NHRA allowable helmets

Postby coburja » Mon Feb 12, 2018 6:01 pm

What SA rating is acceptable for NHRA sanctioned tracks during the 2018 season. We have a SA 2010. Do we need to upgrade?

Do one big favor if and when concidering purchase of a new helmet, especially if it's for small or young kids 13-14 or younger. Not only the saftey requirements of a helmet, but the weight of one. Yes i realize the price of some is up there, but its your young child that has not completely developed strongly in there spinal area. Then you buy the lesser in price helmet that weighs twice as much and then put it on there head like a bobber weight on there little neck, now just waiting for neck issues. A say all this because we are guilty of doing this when we first started him in Jr. racing. Then I saw an article on young kids with injuries possiable caused be a so called safe helmet that weight alot. We are fortunate to have gotten a deal on Simpson Carbon Devil Ray for our 10 yr. old son. And when you compare them, wow it will blow your mind. You will spend a chunk of change on the car, spend some to protect them. Just my thoughts.

I say the same! Last year I decided on getting the boy a carbon fiber helmet. The difference in weight between in and his old one is night and day and he thinks it is much more comfortable to wear, especially if getting strapped into the car and having to wait for a little before making a pass. Hopefully his big head hasn't grown to much to fit into it this season in the high car!

Racequip has kids' sizes. We have been very happy with them. They have a smaller shell size and are lighter.

We also have been very happy with the service of RaceDaySafety.com.
