A buddy from a local forum had this IXS suit... he's moving and it doesn't fit him anyways. It turns out that it fits me PERFECTLY.

It's not pretty, but it's safe and has been professionally repaired after the three crashes it's been in.

It's a $1000 suit and he gave it to me for 50 bucks. It will make a great track day suit and I can use it as a backup or whatever. If I ever crash and rip open this or my 2pc suit, I won't be done for the day because I'll have a backup.

Sweet!!! Certainly can't beat the price...
I know right? When he said it was beat up and crashed and all that, I expected it to look a LOT worse than it does. It's really not in bad shape. I'm very happy... for 50 bucks, it was a ridiculous deal.

Personally I'd start wearing that at the track over your 2pc.

I have a rashed 1pc for the track and a minty 2pc for street use ;)

Yeah I have been thinking that is the way to go for now... especially considering how much better shape it is in than what I was expecting. The 1pc definitely offers more protection and fits me a little better than my 2pc. Eventually I want a Vanson custom 1pc but I need the money first, so this will be it for now.

On that note though, my 2pc isn't quite mint :sing
suit does look nice. Gotta love the goat next to your couch! especially the placement in the last pick!:nocontrol
Haha yeah that's randy. We hang out. :lmao

Well, NOW I call him a friend. Before this, I didn't know him :lmao

Just a cool dude from a local forum who hooked me up. Great guy.
Cant go wrong there great buy!
Yeah! I intend to get a black 1-piece Vanson custom suit built (probably around $1k) when I get the money. Until then, this suit and my two-piece will do the job.
