    "I was wondering though if a motor cycle helmet will work... LoL I can get one of those for free... LoL LoL I doubt its stout enough though... : Aint that funny a motorcycle helmet will work for a drag racer ,1/4 mile 10 sec 130 mph and I have seen them as old as dot 90 mine was a m 96 lol ..... oh well. Time for being really safe which I find is ok nothing like knowing that that is what the helmet is made for, I didnt know about the rating till recently when I started looking for a new helmet if I had known I think I would have bought the right helmet not just something to pass tech. Im excited for the season to start for the seat time I would like to see quite a few play days but I dont know with all that has gone on with the Modifed Nationals this year, I hope the promoter will give a few more play days, I guess we will see. Thanks, Leo

    Ok Ill try the pad in the seat , I reach the pedals fine my legs are bent slightly my concern was how much I should be able to see while sitting in the car ill try having someone stand in front of the car. Right now im comfortable sitting in the car just not comfortable at how much I can see. I also know I dont want to be to high and get half covered in mud either. lol Thanks all for the help, would any one know of a company that ships sheet aluminum for the doors at a reasonable price? I still have yet to hit up some of the metal places here in south Texas to see what they can do for me patial sponser maybe , but if anyone know of a company please let me know.

    Thanks fellas for the replys ill try putting something in front of the car and see what that does, the car was set up for a driver that was 6' 3" im only 5' 11" so I think im going to have to raise it since I cant see much over the dash. Thanks, Leo
  12. Ill be driving a limited mod this season and was wondering how high my seat or should I say how high should I be over the dash panel? Is there a rule of thumb of what a driver should see looking out , for example when im in the car should i be able to see the left front tire , or is it not important to see that tire? Please help im new to short trakin , converted drag racer. Thanks Leo
