Topic: Where to buy cheap gear
I've been shopping around for required safety gear and I've found some pretty good deals so far. I see the forum rules regarding advertising for websites etc, but this seems to only apply to posts where the writer is trying to advertise for their own personal gain. Would I be breaking the rules to post links to websites where I've found good deals?
I've so far bought myself a fire suit, shoes, and socks for a total of about $90, shipping and tax included. I also found SA2015 helmets as low as $65 but I decided to hold out for SA2020 since I don't really expect to be fielding a team until 2023 or 24.
I'm also curious to hear from other bargain shoppers where they are finding the best deals. And as a more general discussion, when is the best time of year to be looking for closeout/clearance deals? Should I be waiting till black friday? After Christmas? After new year's? February? What's considered "off season" in auto racing?
