Rx-7 track videos

I am a proud owner of a E39 M5 which I absolutely love. Figured I would also share some videos of my other, more purist, and somewhat forgotten sports car.

Nice! Thanks for sharing the videos. Love track videos!

A couple of questions...

How did you mount your camera for your footwork? The underside of your steering column? And how did you get light in your footwell?

Attached is a screenshot of my feeble/unsuccessful attempt to capture my hands and feet in a single shot...

It looks like you had a great day at Willow Springs.

Good questions.

I removed my foot a/c vent and zip-tied a gopro hero 3 there. Its basically a bit below the steering column. No lighting was used. The gopro does an excellent job in low light capture. My helmet cam is a contour 3+ which not good in the dark and the audio seriously lacks compared to the gopro. I have my helmet cam to match the footwork video however I still have not discovered a program which can split screen 2 videos. Moviemaker used to have that feature.

Cheers

Decided to post this here as well.

Had the car featured on TUNED (Drive network). This was filmed before the track video while my twin wastegates were not re-routed back into the exhaust. The open dump wastegates which literally sit 6 inches from the exhaust ports made an.... interesting sound. I wasnt a fan.

Love your FD. My father had one while I was in high school. His buddy owned a Mazda dealership in the 90s. They went out one night for drinks, later that nighty my dad came home with a brilliant black Rx-7. I loved that car.
