I was trying to find said supply house the other day. No luck.

My intercom cut out once due likely to low battery or an old crappy headset on codriver side. All codriver did rest of run was scream Gogogogo! As loud as he could everytime i braked. Amazingly effective, fastest time set that stage.

I've had two chances to run w/o intercom. First time was new codriver, first stage of the day, we forgot to turn it on. That was almost bad...as it was through the gravel pit in Houghton, so not actually following roads.

Second time battery died 3 corners into 16 mile stage at NEFR. Jay used hand signals...they worked great...although I think his shoulder hurt for weeks.


WARNING: Volume very loud...I was using the camera mic.

That's even better than the place I've been keeping around to buy from if I ever get the car put back together:

If you dig around the interwebs and get lucky, you can find some industrial supply house that treats the peltor stuff like some 3M tool and sells it with some 3% mark up like a drill bit. not some 100%
+ OMGEEZ racing parts!!!?!!

I Bought 3 or 4 a couple years back and nearly paid for the one I kept by selling the others.
\

We picked up a bunch of FMT-200s NIB for like $50 a pop from of all places, a habitat for humanity restore - they got them from 3M in Cincinnati or somewhere like that. They had a dozen, and we passed the word 'til all were taken.
