Vehicle Mounted Cameras
Vehicle mounted cameras like the GoPro Hero4 Black are great devices to capture your rip around the track or down that favorite winding road. But did you make the connection that they can also be a learning and diagnostic tool? When properly mounted in the right location, you can review the video to see how you enter turns, if you’re hitting the apex right, or even to determine how much body roll you have in the suspension. Speaking of suspension, you can even mount a camera under the car to film the suspension travel as a diagnostic tool. Like Speedy Bill always said, “Tools are an investment, not an expense.” Investing in a GoPro Hero4 Black today could save you a lot of expense down the road.
There are so many different styles of mounts and places to mount a GoPro Hero4 Black on a vehicle nowadays that you could probably spend an entire day just thinking about where to put one. One of the most popular is the suction cup mount, which allows you to basically place the camera anywhere the cup can get a good grip. Speedway Motors also carries a helmet mount for the camera, and a roll bar mount. That roll bar mount works great for those of you who have cages in your race vehicles, like dragsters, sprints, and modifieds. Replacement housing, additional batteries, different lens kits, and even memory cards formatted for the GoPros are also available. To browse our selection of mounts and accessories, click here.
