My First TrackDay

I'm going to my first trackday April 1st. I'm in the process of getting all my stuff on the bike setup, and I have my suit, gauntlets, boots, etc.

I was just informed that in addition to the ridiculous amount of money I've already spent, i also need a spine/back protector. I'm reluctant to buy one of these, since I really dont even have another 100 bucks to drop on anything.

Does anyone have one, and would be willing to lend it to me for the weekend? If its a sized one, I need something in the medium/small range. I'm 125 lbs, and I wear a size 28 - 29 pant.

The team Chicago guys will not check for your back protector (or at least they havenot in the past) but its not smart to ride the track with out on.
