Question Racing helmets

I'm looking to get a helmet to use for auto-x and mostly rally-x. What's a good/affordable kind? Any brands and models in particular you racers like? Also, does anyone know a good place in the Phoenix AZ area to pick one up new or slightly used?

I got a HJC. $90, but open face. I think they have a full face for about $120.
I wouldnt buy a used helm from anyone unless you would trust that person with your life.

I like Shoei. Try Motorcycle Accessory Warehouse for decent prices on M rated helmets.

So M rated is the requirement.
Good point, Midwayman, even though the helmets are required, I may actually need it to protect my head someday.

Snell 95 still in effect for this year.
Next year it may be Snell 00 for SCCA

I hit the track with a Shoei, but Arai and AGV are not bad either. HJC is not a helmet I'd trust to crash in. ( BTW, this is all from motorcycle experience so car might be different )

snell 00 is just out, but snell 85 just became unusable. Anything in between is good for a while.

No, you need something with a SNELL rating.

Snell 95 rating is the minimum.

Is Snell 00 out yet?

Looks like I'll be shopping for a new helmet. Snell 85 should be good until January 2001 in SCCA, right?
