Dunno if u have seen one of these before but might try this first.
Seeing as track time isnt cheap, it will be good to have some video memories........memories of my shite driving.
Darren, the first clip I did at Brands was with it just taped to the top of the dash. The proper dash mount we used at Castle Combe. We have not edited this yet but hopefully will have some footage very soon. I have also used the camera on my mountain bike helmet on a downhill in Candada, which was pretty amazing (I am afraid that is only on tape as it is about 20 minutes !!)
The main thing to remember is that to use the remote lense you need a camera that will accept analog video. These are few and far between.
that video clip on your website, was that created with the camera taped to the dash like in the picture?.
I`m hoping to get a camcorder soon, cant decide wether to get a suction mount to mount it to the windows, or use a bullet cam and tape it to different places. Could try both I suppose but would rather start with the best method (to save a few bob by not buying the other).
I ditched my "Scrapiron" ages ago. Not only are they noisy as hell with a booming resonance at motorway speeds they were also designed by a complete knob. They are missing the vital crossover pipe at the manifold joint. I replaced mine with a Supersprint which is lovely. It has a nice sporty note but not intrusive and is built and designed properly.
I have a 89 Evo II with a Scorpion exhaust. To be honest it's really too noisy and the baffle plate in the rear box is resonating at 3000 RPM. I want to get a quite exhaust. so it doesn't roar!! or is this impossible?
I don't know if the standard one is quite or not.
