[quote=JamesWilson2;27033155]I have a Sparco SN2000 model carbon-mix helmet with HANS anchors (SA2000), an open-face Bell (SA2000) for autocross/instructing, and a Pyrotect full face (SA2005). All fit differently and are all different sizes, but are used for different things. I find myself using the Sparco for karting and the Pyrotect for track days, and the open-face for everything else. I can always swap the HANS anchors to the Pyrotect helmet if I need to.

See.. I do like the weight, and having the kevlar Bell Dominator has kind of spoiled me with lightweight helmets.. when I pick up my first HJC karting helmet I wodner if someone filled it with lead.

I do worry about fit, as I haven't tried one on, and I also worry about build quality. With even my lest expensive Bell I could take the liner out, wash it, put it back in and it held together. To me that's worth some extra money after a full day instructing/driving.
