Sweet! I've used mine too, but I have dared used the suction cups outside the car.

Yeah, this cam spends most of its time on top of an Evo during autocross runs. A little scary! At least these things seem to take falls well!

Nope, it belongs to my passenger, my buddy Kyle. He gets some sweet footage out of the thing!

What size pulley are you running? Can your car do a burnout without holding the foot brake?
When I was SC I could do a burnout with 16Krpm launch but an idle-12Krpm launch it would just accelerate.

It's a 3.4 pulley, and yes and no.

Sometimes it will just burn the tires without any brake work, other times it just catapults off the line. Weather seems to be the variable though it has burned pretty hard on warm days too. Shrug.

GoPro does a real nice job !

I used a compact Nikon and a PanaVise to shot mine on a causal drive. One of these days I'll have to take it out and get some aggressive footage.

Wow, what kind of head setup does it take to hit 16Krpm?? Formula One Fiero?

5.3 seconds 0-60. not bad.
probably knock of that "0.3" if there is no passenger

or knock off a full second with me riding shotgun because I'm made of helium...at least I'm starting to think like that because I feel high when I hear the whine of the M90...I miss my GTP a little now. I'm blaming you, not in a bad way, just because I can. hahaha

really hoping one of these days I can build my year round 3800SC cruiser Fiero. an yes of course you'll be involved.

though I'm thinking my next engine will make you jealous

I wish I would have had one of these when I was in Germany. Would have been nice recording some the the 150MPH + runs on the Bahn... Maybe next time I'm over there a few years from now. These are some nice vids though and thanks for sharing!

I think gopro has a lifetime warranty on this stuff, if no one has said it already.

My friend found a broken gopro at a garage sale. Mailed it in, got a brand new one back.
