I believe it is currently Snell 2000 or the two previous classifications that are acceptable, however for local events, they are more more slack here

they will run u about 150$ for a cheap one... I think... unless you get open-face which should be cheaper...

local events don't give a rat's ass what you're wearing... as long as it's solid and on your head. I saw people running motorcycle, auto, quad, dirt-bike helmets, etc. without any problem.

btw - It's probably better not to get a motorcycle helmet, just in case you want to take part in NASA meets or regional/nationals etc. Most of those won't allow motorcycle helmets, it really depends on the group though. :dontknow:

As far as I know, Snell M rated is all thats needed. The SA rated helmets have nomex interiors and are fire resistant -AKA- more expensive. Save yourself some $$$ and just get something M2000 rated, that is unless you plan to have the inside of your car catch on fire =]

What would be the best "all-around" helmet to get? I'll be doing 90% SCCA soloII this summer, but maybe some other club's events as well (nothing on the national, or even regional level).:thumbsup:

open-faced are hard to find....its just a matter of preference really and for just auto-x'ing your RSX, you will never really need the functionality of either

Time wise is just a guess...until new twchnology comes around, but most clubs will honor 2-3 cycles of helmets

Toward the bottom of this page:
http://www.soloperformance.com/catalog_helmet.htm

There are some Snell M2000 rated open and closed face helmets that are great for Autocross. $69-$79 for open face, $85 for full face. That's about as cheap as you will find them. They are decent helmets for the price. I know several guys using them....and they are definitely nicer than having to share the loaner helmets!
