Nice one Mike, question for you though what video mount are you using? The one I have transmits vibration to much and the camera stops recording.

Anybody else have one to post sure would appreciate it.

Ummmm, I was going to mention the mount but it is so barney that I didn't want to say anything.
I have a piece of plexiglas mounted to the roll bar that keeps the back of my head from getting blasted by the wind that wraps around behind me, it has a wood strip across the bottom. to that strip I clamp a plate/mount which I made out of 1/8 inch plate.
On the plate is a simple upright tab (similar material) with a strip of angle iron going onto it, it pivots to angle the camera down or up and a hole in the top mounts the camera and allows it to be swung -aiming left to right.

Exceedingly simple. Note- it has to be heavy material or it will vibrate like crazy. I had to screw a board under it that goes back to the rear sill of the buggy body because it would vibrate without it. One "C" clamp holds it firmly in place. With the three point mount system it is rock solid.
actually the metal parts would make a good mount if you were doing a video in the house.
If I had a sedan, I would make the same wooden deal (knowing what I now know) across the side window sills and tieing in to that piece- right back to the rear package shelf. Like a "T" - the across part could be held down with light bungee cords. Clamp the metal "Mount" to the wood like I did. Like I said, it looks really crude ( how many times would something like that get used anyway?) but works really well. I suppose you could screw a store bought tripod to the "T" also.

Well I made another mount and had to use a camera with tape in it cause the vibration was so bad it shut it down but here is a brief one. I thought if it was mounted behind the windshield it would help some of the wind noise, nope!

You know how a mic has a foam ball over it? To kill the wind noise while speaking. Try cutting a portion of an old sock's topmost fabric (it has elastic in it)- strech it over the camera where the mic is. I just tried it and it works.
Here is a pic of my camera mount and the little black thing is the wind block sock.

This is a video of my last race with the DLI blower. I ran a 12.06 on a 12.20 dial in. Crappy way to go out.

I will be running a turbo for my next race.
