I found a helmet that is 23 1/8(7 3/8 helmet size i belive) but my head is 23 1/4. So do you think I should risk sending out my money to buy this helmet of the racer or should I keep my eyes open to see what else I can find?

IMO wait and get the right size safety is not the area to skimp if it's not comfortable then you won't be

I don't think using the total area around the head an 1/8 will matter that much. If it was a 7 1/4 and you needed a 7 3/8 maybe a thought then but I would buy it.

you should be fine most helmets are sized to fit a range of 1/4 in. i know my old helmet was for 7/14-71/2 and i wear a 7/18 and it didn't hurt me when i hit on head on the wall when i was racing karts indoors a few years ago
