Sorry about the bounce on the video. It's 2 different segments from the same run spliced together as I had the heavy traffic bits cut out for size considerations. Enjoy!

picky picky....but yes I did try to mount it as high as possible :( Should have a better and more proper mounting point for next season.

How did you mount it in your car? Care to take a picture for me?

I Velcro'd my camera to the top of my passenger seat at a track day, worked pretty good, pretty firm, nice angle. got the velcro at dollarama.

Sure I can take a picture sometime this week. It was easy really. Just too a piece of square hollow extruded aluminum, cut it to length (longer than the pass. headrest) and put 2 long bolts through it to clamp it firmly to the headrest. Then I drilled a hole to mount a camera mount onto the bar I left longer. Got the camera mount off a cheap mini tripod I had lying around.

haha when I first saw it I thought it was some sort of drafting tool or an alignment rod!!!

Once I saw it in the car I was like damn that's kinda cool.

Lol - I could have made up all sorts of uses :) Only thing I forgot was to wind the camera cord around the mount to secure it. I think that's what made all the clicking noises in the video.

it sounded like the camera was rattling in a case or something.
