    What's everyone's preferred GoPro mount and location? I picked up a RamMount with suction cup for mine and tried it on the front bumper right next to the plate. I like that it captures the feeling of speed better than inside the car. It also picks up some engine noise even though it's in the waterproof housing. I think this will be be my preferred mounting location for Autocross runs. The RamMount is very solid and there is very little shaking of the camera , even though the roads are pretty torn up this year. I'll post a link to the video once it finishes uploading.

    I like to see my inputs so I've been mounting my GoPro to the helmet lately. I'm planning on building a simple headrest mount for more stability.

    Yes, just like that. Looks quality built - did you build it Dave?

    Yes, I built this one myself.
    I just used a PanaVise end and aluminum round bar.

    I just used leftover parts I had lying around.
    Mine required me to cut a groove on the end of the bar.

    That's a good tool. It's hard to judge how you're driving in the heat of the moment. Reviewing the video can help identify how smooth you're driving. I'll probably alternate inside and outside mounting. Maybe I need a second camera? Of course, any excuse to spend money on my new addiction...

    I mount my GoPro next to the rearview mirror, hang it upside down. It gives a near middle of the car view and you can see cones all the way to the bumper

    I have mounted GoPro's all over the ST and also filmed 2 commercials with the ST in Brazil that used a number of different camera's mounted on the car. A few popular spots to mount the cameras are on the rear hatch looking at the ST logo, low on the door looking at the front wheel, rear brake light capturing the entire side (we mounted one like this on Brian Deegan's RX ST in Brazil), sunroof looking down into the cockpit, and all over the hood and roof pointing in different directions. Going wide angle on the rear tail light and sunroof worked really well. Another great angle is mounting the GoPro under the HVAC controller using wide angle. I got some great footage from LSPR with a GoPro mounted under dash looking back at the driver and co-driver. Easy to do on a rally car with no console, but harder with a street car.

    Here are a few videos showing multiple GoPro camera angles being used;
