Project completed.
1) Swann CCTV 320 x 200 native TV resolution camera $40 from fry's.
2) Sony CCD-V220. hand-me-down from dad. It's an old school Hi-8 production cam...
3) power inverter hard-wired to the distribution block near my amp.



Mounted on the grille, runs off a 9V battery that tucks away into that crevice near the headlamp.

Here's the video...

I can now Officially say my car is "track-day" ready.... (suspension is just fine and dandy)

This is going to be fun to watch me lose my auto-X virginity.

you ought to try and get a slight fish eye on that thing. You could see the coners coming etc, more of a periph. vision.
Nice though, can you control it form INSIDE the car? Record, stop, power etc?

Drafting behind the Honda? Was beer being poured? : P

I'd like to "draft" this video in my personal cool collection. [thumb]

You have a smudge mark on there. Perhaps you should install a automated windshield wiper on that little ol' lens.

Now you just need to get a mic set up where there is less wind turbulance and you'll have yourself a pretty cool "Driving with Ryan" segment every week. I can see it now... Every Thursday night at 7, people all around the world log-in and download the newest video from fosho.org to watch you drive around town... it'll be a cult classic. Muuhahaha... okay... my inner dork has surfaced... good job man.
