At 79, my wife informed me that there's no hot air left.

Increased the height of the wind screen two inches, initially leaving with the shield up then flipping it down while holding my breath to the turn off. Problem solved.

My wife informed me that there's no hot air left.

I will have to try that on her. Guaranteed i get slapped. Great lol for the day.

I leave visor up all the time. During the day I close it before the car leaves at night I let the wind close it down track or I hold it open if I'm chasing. I do wear glasses and sit at or below windshield level.

Well i read all the responses & didnt see my way of doing it & im sure my way will be frowned upon but I never put my shield down. I have it tightened up so it will usually not fall. Although this past weekend at MDIR the air must have caught it just right and forced it down. It was 40 couple degrees & after 11pm at night so the shield was wet and fogged over. I could barley see and missed my drop spot. I guess I need to torque on it a little more.

Fresh air pump. Stick the hose under the helmet skirt or get the adapter to put it on the helmet. 100% ends fogging and the last few minutes in staging lanes when its 100-degrees out....MUCH BETTER! Cost about $129.00 from a Stock Car shop like Performance Bodies.

Now using fan and roll down windows on the S10, too old for those 1.05 60' dragster hits.
