Is is too late to sign up for the class? I think I might be able to get the time off after all.

Cool I'll take you up on that. That is, of course, if you're truly not going and it's too late for me to sign up for myself.

There is a shop over by Andrews Airforce base that sells them. It would probably be a good idea to go try them on so you know how well it's going to fit!

Which reminds me, I don't know how I ended up being a size EXTRA small. But, it's the only helmet sixe they fit snug enough where I couldn't move my head with out moving the helmet. I still think it's a little tight but the guy at the store said I have to break it in.

I wear a medium, but it looks frinkin HUGE when I try it on. it's difficult getting in and out of the car with it on but I guess that's because I'm just not used to it. it might also help if I didn't have the sunroof. I don't rub the roof, but I wouldn't mind having another inch or two in head clearance.

You'll be in the car for about 10 minutes at a time, then back out for 10 minutes, so its not like you'll be getting in and out after every run.

- What car you are driving.Subaru DL

- Power/handling/performance mods on the car.I've added about a dozen stickers to the DL, so I should be upwards of 100HP. I will be the fAstAr of the group.

- Your autox experience (events and training).I cross myself every night before bed and don't even think about it.

I know some of you have already sent this, but I would really appriciate you sending it again.No problem, let me know if you need it again
