So was there ever a 24 hour plug and play "untrained crew-proof" solution found?


Simplest plan I've seen yet is to own two identical dash cams and swap them out @ 8 hour intervals in pit stops. Power on = recording.

I don't remember the specs, but it seems like the XD1080 has a narrower FOV than the GoPro of the same era.  It certainly doesn't have as much edge distortion.  It also does a good job handling the different light levels.  Where the GoPro shines is the audio.  The internal mic on the XD picks up a lot of wind noise.  (We installed the passenger side net before going to Daytona, hoping it would help aero a little bit.  It cut down on the wind noise a lot, so it might have actually worked.)



Hey Tobey, can you clarify a few things:

-How long can the XD record on a single card of max size (internet said 32GB is the largest for that camera?)


-How do you setup the camera to not stop recording when power is interrupted / restored to charging port?


-Have you ever tried overlaying data across multiple files? If the recordings have any gap between them in my experience it cause non-trivial problems keeping the data in sync with video stream.

Last summer -- I was driving our RX7-V6 and fought the rear end all the time -- this spring I convinced the team that fixing the oversteer would be a net win.  We went from 2:53 fastest lap with lots of drama to a very

fun 2:46 at the last CoTA event -- only 0.02 sec slower than top in our class.  Only change was back to a stock sway bar.


Easy to drive -- lots of confidence in the car, especially in traffic.  




Nicely done. I noticed several cars @ TWS locking inside front and or rear wheels when trail braking, and was thinking "maybe a bit less bar on that end". Did you notice difference in tire wear?

OK, clearly I don't know how to post video here... is there a tutorial somewhere?
