Default In-car Video

I am sure this has been done before - but I thought it might be worth posting.
I stuck a small video camera in the car last weekend and ended up with this.
Enjoy -
p.s. - Click on the download called "Video from inside car"

It's cool seeing the suspension work. The big hole in the body has to be killing your performance. Cool stuff, now go tighten it up!

Cool video.
It's good to see the suspension work when it's driving.
Props to you.

nice vid...
what i'd like to see next is a side by side comparison of a car running a high roll center vs a low roll center.. and one with long vs short arms etc (same chassis, same driver, same track also :P)
would be good to compare that sort of stuff in video form!

That camera looks quite nice, plus being at 25 fps makes it even better Although the frame rate is at the PAL standard the resolution isn't, could be problematic.


This was a good vid to watch, its good actually seeing what the suspension actually goes through.

That's cool you need to do it again. But instead not spin out and pass another car. Maybe a little bump pass action?

Thanks for the "big ups" guys - glad you liked it.
Good idea Slowguy - next time I borrow it I will put the stock car into a Novice race so as to keep up with the pack and we might see some - what did you call it? - "Bump passing" plus, I always wanted to see what the other cars see when they barge pass in a tight RH turn at our track.

Mok - I need money to do all those comparison runs! - and then I will probably sell the data - tell you what, send me a couple of hundred whenever you can and I will make your first page of data Free!
Cheers - M
