RX7 vs RSR2

So I decided to try my luck with an RX7 after bashing my RSR2 a few months back. Here is what i've come up with so far

RX7
pros:
1. flows more air through top vents than RSR2.
2. More comfort padding than the RSR2(not that the rsr2 wasn't comfy)
3. More aerodynamic than the RSR2 (I haven't gotten any buffeting w/ the rx7)
4. Able to swap out to different thickness comfort padding
5. Better sweat management than the RSR2

Cons:
1. Back of helmet hits back protector when tucked(RSR2 doesn't; just me?)
2. Face shield system nowhere near as nice/easy/secure as the RSR2's.
3. Yup it's noisy (bit more than the RSR2 i'd say)
4. Maybe a little too much comfort padding(kinda bothers me actually)
5. No winter mask like the RSR2


I wish both Shark and Arai would get together to make a super helmet known as the Sharkrai, or Sharai, RXR7

arai does make a "winter mask" i sold several 4-5yrs ago when they first came out.

i think this one is a better product

haha why would there be a car comparison in the gear talk forum?

Thanks for the info on the mask, I'm gonna have to get one. Too bad arai doesn't supply the mask w/ the helmet like shark does.
