    Hi all,

    I'm running my hellcat challenger in the Mojave Mile in April... Would like to setup a camera mount to capture out the front window and separately also the dash - so I can get the speed (going for a max speed of 180!)

    Not really suppose to use suction cup mounting - camera needs to be hard mounted. Any suggestions on how to achieve this without spending a ton? The gopro is the obvious choice except for cost - and I'm not seeing a clear solution for capturing the dash. Would a chest mount work? Other ideas?

    Thanks very much for any advice!

    I picked up a Vivitar off eBay last year for $60. Mounted it to passenger headrest post.

    I just used the head band for the GoPro 3 over the passenger headrest. Wanted to see if it can film performance pages.
