Hi guys, my son is a seven year old Inter (he's big for his age) and I want to buy a quality neck brace for him. However, I'm concern that it might hamper his head from tilting back to see the lights. What brace are you guys using for the little ones?
Also, what pressure suits and helmet work well with the neck braces?
I'm not afraid to spend some money, if I have too.
Thanks for your help and time. Jim
Too many tracks have their lights at too high of an angle. To me, ideal is that the lights are only a few feet from the ground on the 30' line. Too many tracks have them suspended above the track making you look way up, or on a post that is over 3' tall. Why should it be so low? I feel it is best to be able to watch the lights, and not lose the gate from your vision. It is also way more comfortable and natural to look at a light closer to the ground. How many people race looking up?
I wish the tracks could standardise on this. I am not suggesting this to get more light sales either!
