    Donuts are delicious! But yeah... I may have been mixing up the different fun things to do.

    Typical SCCA Tech involves checking your wheel bearings don't seem to be going bad (trying to wiggle your wheels while it's sitting), that your battery is firmly held in place, that you have removed your floormats and anything else that may move about the inside of the car or trunk, you're throttle returns to the closed position with no resistance, and you have a seatbelt.

    Sorry for the double post.

    If you're not looking for a SA cert and a M cert will work for you, cyclegear on Golf Rd by the Portillos has some inexpensive motorcycle helmets.

    Motorcycle helmets are fine for autocross. Pepboys even sells motorcycle helmets that would be good enough.

    Just make sure it has a sticker that says it is M2005 or newer visible on it.
