Oh Hell I just ordered one...(Want to Rent GoPro)

Thanks for the suggestions and offer (Abeek). I just decided to go ahead and order one. Got it from Amazon for $269.

Thanks Abeek! I would love to do the pie run myself but autocross is more important... Perhaps I can stop by Sunday morning on my way to FedEx?

Where do find that mounting the camera gives you the best information for you to make adjustments?

I just use my regular point and shoot camera and modified a suction cup mount that came with my sirius radio kit from another car. I've had it mounted on the roof and inside by my mirror. Works great!

It gives you feedback on how you're driving, obviously not right at that moment but afterwards when I get home and look at the video I can see how close I was to specific cones as well as see the exact line I took through corners. You can also use it to view your habits with steering inputs whether you are forgetting to keep two hands on the wheel or looking ahead or lack of looking ahead. So yes, definitely worth it.

I'll pm my number to you. Best mounting spot would be on the sunroof inside the cabin. You should be able to see what your hands are doing and the road at the same time.
