Doubtful I'll run this whole setup every time as it's a huge PITA. As I know you just want to see the video here you go:


Now, here's what's used:
- Nose: ContourHD Wide Angle
- Cockpit: ChaseCam SD
- Feet: Original HeroCam SD
- RaceRendere - used to do the video overlay
- DashWare - used to add the gauges after the overlay video is done

While I could use RaceRenderer for everything I didn't really care for the gauges in it and I haven't taken the time to create my own - and as I just bought DashWare I wanted to play with it anyway. Bummed DashWare can't do multiple video files where RaceRenderer can. If I had to pick just one definitely RaceRenderer.

Nice driving and setup, thanks for sharing. Engine sounds pretty aggressive too, which camera was the audio feed coming from? How did you control the wind noise?

Audio feed is coming from the ChaseCam PDR1000 - that's the DVR piece that I installed in the dash (where my passenger airbag was). It has an internal mic which luckily works pretty great even with it installed in the dash. I actually ran a mic to the engine bay but couldn't get the mix right on it - I'm planning to try that next time. The wind noise from the Contour on the nose was awful as was the sound on the Hero that was at my feet.

Interesting that it picks up the engine sounds so clearly, even when tucked into the enclosed dash. Thanks for sharing

We did a lot of engineering on that.

...some guys can pick up in the in helmet radio chatter with the chase cam box in the cockpit with no voice connection - just ambient - crazy!
