There is currently no hearing protection that can lower db beyond 30 decibels, and that is with both plugs and cans together. No options exist for babies in this regard. By taking an infant or young child to a place that can produce db in excess of 140 or more you are not only destroying the cilia within their cochlea for life, but causing them pain.

But I am sure when they are 55, you're dead and they can't hear noises at certin frequencies anymore they can take comfort in the fact they were at a family drag race they cannot possibly remember. Way to parent.

Please, dont talk common sense here, this board is for tough guys who walk around with their cocks out screaming "come at me bro". Kids health and well being take a back seat to that shit.

Apparently...

Not sure when damaging your kids for life on purpose became the manly thing to do.

You know it's funny, I had to go back and read my original thread again because I didn't remember asking if everyone thought taking a kid to the track was a good idea or not.

Sure enough, I didn't ask if people thought it was a good idea, I asked for guys who take their kids to the track to give opinions on hearing protection.

If you do not take your kids to the track with hearing protection then you need to get the fuck out of this thread, as you are way better parents than those that do (or in my case a parent trying to gather info).

Badass gt ..... check amazon and search infant ear muffs. I bought some smaller muffs for my son, they adjust samll enough that they fit right yet they will go large enough to last a few years. He is two today and loves the races. Hope this helps as Im one of those no good parents that would rather have my son at the track with me instead of spending the weekend with a sitter.

Sorry bud, but it doesn't get that loud in the motorhome, ever. And what the fuck do you think we are doing, taking the kid into the burnout box next to the cars. Or maybe pushing the stroller up to the starting line so he gets a good look see.

I'm not standing in a top fuel dragster pit while they seat a clutch, get a grip. I'll go buy a deciblemeter and keep it with him all weekend, we'll see if there is actual reason for concern.

Dude I have seen those very things done many times.

What purpose does an infant serve at the racetrack, in motorhome or not?

why does there have to be a "purpose"?? do you think people are bringing there kids to the track for some kind of purpose? maybe, just maybe, its a family sport for some and everyone in the family is to be included.

There needs to be a purpose great enough to offset the potential dangers of bringing an infant to the track. I'm not talking about walking talking kids here, but an infant.

I hear ya, but the reason you are taking flak here is probably the title. Might as well have it be 'Infant sunblock for the tanning booth' or 'Infant motorcycle helmets for my harley'

Can't expect someone that understands hearing damage to not say a thing about it. Forgive us for not wanting your kid to suffer.

The self righteous pussification of America continues. If it doesn't affect you mind your own business and shut the fuck up.

If you drop a tool under the car someone has to crawl under there to get it
