Monty,

Looks like you had fun. My only thought is you may want to move the cam as it looks like it's pointing through an un-swept part of the windscreen.

I'd like to know what paint Dico has as around the 6min mark his car seem to change to all sorts of colours, probably a speed camera defense mechanism. :D

Since u can`t pre view what the camera is looking at and it just didn`t occur to me about the wiper lol. Just playing about with it really and trying to get use to editing, which is time consuming

I probably would have done the same, just one of those things you don't think about until it causes a problem, or some wise ar*e points it out :D

Monty, how well does your suction mount fit to the car. Could you for instance fix it to the side of the door or the bonnet?

oh and btw tell that paul not to splash cyclists :smt018

Looked like a lovely day for a drive. Sun out, blue (then grey then green then yellow then red at 6 mins) skies, bit of light drizzle and Dico with his hood up - what's that all about then? Manchester United = bunch of softies :lol:

That looked like fun - you certainly can't call them garage queens! How much cleaning afterwards? :?

On a sort of related note (in that it popped up in the same category), I notice that there are a couple of videos which say Lotus Elan M100 300BHP, posted by someone called Bistoboy1.

Any idea who he is, and who owns the Red Elan? I thought only Costas had got 300BHP+ out of an Elan, and while I don't doubt that it was quick, he took a long while to get past that Fiesta!

There is a member on here (who does'nt post) that aledgedly has a mega mega souped up Elan in the UK.
Someone on here has mentioned him before, but I can't think who? :?

There will be some better vids once summers here :twisted:

On my 1st filming (on previous page) I mounted the camera in 3 positions ie inside windscreen, on the hood storage lid and on the passenger door. It seem secure but it`s having faith in that it doesn`t come off :shock:

like mountain climbing, you can put a security rope on the camera -- in case the suction cup comes undone, then you will just have a camera whacking against the sid eof the car to tell you rather than one getting driven over . . .
