Firesuit
« on: July 06, 2023, 01:49:51 PM »
 While book requires a 20 suit. I will not be racing any events and looking for something I can stand heat in. Thinking a 15 is more than need for alky injected engine. Wonder what most here are wearing. I asked same thing on DRR.With most everyone ther having RED it is different world in a way than here where we all have the engine in front of us. Then real mean have power out front and other get it in rear (new T shirt I am working on). LOL

I wear a 15, with fire retardant under wear, gloves and socks, under the rest. I would go to the 20 suit but itísa but pricey and I had a 15 given to me every 2-3 years.

I've got a -15. I'm close and you can try it on to see if it'll fit.

I wear a -15 as well. And being in the same area as you, I've had none of the local tracks ever check anything on my clothing or the car itself.
