you can get brand new ones from midwest or jr for like 80 bucks small investment considering what it's used for any used suits are pretty much worn out and aren't any better then a flannle shirt and jeans

Well thanks Dad...Just Kidding, I would love nothing more then to spend $200 dollars on a Fire suit, but I jsut don't have the funds right now. That is why I am in cruisers. As soon as funds allow I will upgrade to good suits.

when i raced cruisers i payed more for my helmet and suit then i did for the dang car look at it this way you can spend 50 bucks on a used one that is junk or you can spend 30 more and get one that will work buy new or nothing at all .heck you could just buy them one piece at a time myself with the way the guys have gotten hurt down there in the last year in cruisers i would buy everything i could find for safty but what can you espect from a place that only requiers a couple 3in pieces of tubing from the floor to the roof for a cage.

I understand what you are saying I have a $400 Snell95 helmet from racing Go Karts and a car that has a cage that is legal enough for a IMCA Hobby Stock...If you are serious that I can get A comple suit for $80 I wil look into it. Where is this company located and how can I get ahold of them

speedway has a suit for $75 and midwest motorsports in ames has some for about the same thats where i get mine i buy a new one every other year. realy if you bolth could go out and find one sponsor each it would pretty much pay for it right there. just rember a fire suit is alot cheaper and less painfull then a skin graft

when using a proban material suit,or a single layer nomex suit,speed is of the essance in gettiing out of the car,you don't have to much time before the suit won't help you.And as Dr.**** of Speedway Illustrated always says "would you really feel safe with your head in a $10.00 helmet"!!!I have never had a serious burn,but I know some who have survived life threating burns,I know I would rather break an arm or leg than to be burnt!!
