Arrow In Car Camera at Sids Raceway

After a brief absence from my T4, which I'm excited to own once again and in the excitement Ive re-released this clip. This short video was made two summers ago at Sids Raceway. Awesome track and great bunch of guys! The clip has three different camera angles; from the drivers stand, track-side and of course the In Car Camera. Normally the lap times are 35-40sec but this clip is about 1:20sec... Id like to blame the slow time on the editing BUT maybe I was just TOO slow!! First time driving RC after almost 18yrs! LOL... Enjoy!

Nice driving - Not bad for such a long layoff. Great video, nice editing. I really enjoyed all the perspectives.

Where's the onboard footage from that track? I'd like to see that! What kind of camera did you use (onboard)?

Unfortunately Johnny, I dont have any on borad from Fastcats but something to think about!!

In the first video I just used a small digital cannon. Tied it to the rear shock tower. Notice the body comes off and then back on again! lol
