    We need one for the drives

    <img src="http://vwvortex.rely.net/artman/uploads/autotech3.jpg" alt=" - " />

    What do you reckon? I think this would be great to have on our drives, seeing people are enthusiastic about drive videos. Harder to complain about the camera man this way - you just drive!

    Hmmm... The camera looks a bit close to the headrest, I think I'd be likely to constantly bash my head on it during some spirited cornering...

    I think that is the passenger seat in that photo (only has one electric window switch). Quite likely being a US website.

    So I guess we would just stick it the other way around (would still work fine)

    pretty wicked install ey?

    i remember PULS8R took some footage of several lift-off oversteers and hand brakies on his handycam (on one of our cruises) but just didnt have any of the pants-in-the-seat feel youd expect.

    maybe we could organise someone to set up a tripod on a flying corner ey? thatd be sik yeah?

    still, i wouldnt say no to one.

    speaking of which, did someone say car cruise? wink

    remembering it takes us melbournians a dozen threads, thousands of posts and frign months to organise one afternoon mallet

    We've used IP cameras for RallyOz ... mainly <a href="http://www.axis.com/products/cam_2110/index.htm" target="_blank">Axis</a> but there is <a href="http://www.axis.com/products/cam_205/index.htm" target="_blank">smaller</a> versions. Just need some wireless coverage along the route
