That Miata vs Viper video is my favorite. There used to be a serveral min section after that. When he gets into the turn section. He is so hot on the viper, the viper hits his brakes and lets him go around. The miata guy was getting crazy and a wreck probably would of happened. But still yet, the viper couldn't get away.

It would not surprise me to see a turbo miata beat a Viper after watching this video.

The gopro's are great as long as you keep in mind that it is and should be disposable. The video quality is good, but not near as good as a chase cam setup.

The mounts work good but don't have full articulation and makes for weird mounting at times.

Is there a equally price alternative?

Depends on what you want out of the camera. The gopro cameras are definately a great package and hard to beat for the price. I love the weather proof case, and the mount is pretty good, I've seen them stuck to the rear wing of a formula ford for a 20 minute session without issue (meaning the camera didn't leave the wing, and it was still recording, though the video was useless because of the amount of vibration). But as I mentioned, the mount doesn't have enough articulation, that would probably be my only real gripe with it, that and there isn't a display you can review shots with, oh and on really sunny days it's sometimes hard to tell if your recording or not because the LCD will sunwash like cheap LCD's do. I've had to compromise shots because of the mount, for example it can't be use to get a good forward shot that includes the driver mounted to an NSX back window without throwing away the mount and duct taping the camera to the window. For a miata with the top down though you could get some great shots.


In the same price range I've gotten pretty good video from cheap Aiptek cameras, I had an old setup that used a chasecam lipstick cam running into an Aiptek that had a a/v in which worked really well. The chasecams have a far superior lens and optical sensor, IMO they are worth the money.


If you want good video of the suspension working, or really want to push the extremes of camera angles and shots you'll need to use a lipstick camera like a chasecam.


If you want HD in that price range.

Amazon.com: Aiptek A-HD Pro 1080P High Definition Camcorder (Silver): Camera & Photo


There are thousands of solid state recording devices in that range these days. Like this one.

Amazon.com: Oregon Scientific ATC 2K Action Cam Flash Memory Camcorder: Camera & Photo


Though the gopro is very durable, you should view any camera in this price range as disposable, especially when you concider the environment they need to function in.

So really, what kind of A-hole rolls up in his Ferrari and challenges a Miata?!? WTF? That really takes a special kind of ***** to do that. Glad he got what he deserved. All I can figure is they knew each other. ( In the biblical sense )

There was a guy at Hallett once in a yellow 355 who bitched...

d-bag: "the guy in the green miata needs to yield to the faster cars, and get off my ***"

head instructor: "aren't you in the ferrari?"

A few people in the class told me it was pretty lol.
