Get one with a remote or even operate from & view on your phone. I use the remote from the drivers seat, starting and stopping the video. Prevents recording ride back 2 thevpit or to the line

I use the 7 Silver for riding my sled. mounted to my helmet. takes nice clear video. the black is where it's at though. more features and battery packs instead of internal battery of the silver and white hero 7's.

I don't have a go-pro, but I've had a Replay XD for a while. Only real complaint about it I have is that audio is tempermental, requires some adjusting the gain sometimes, and battery life is decent. I like about it, is that it's very low profile, and works good for putting on the outside of the car, and is less likely to get blown backwards like a go-pro does if using a suction mount.


I bought some bar mounts, and put it inside the race car, that's where the audio gain comment came from (with a weldon electric pump in the rear (underside of the car), it almost blew all the audio out until I turned the gain down). With the bar mounts it took a little time getting things aligned good and getting the card in/out of the back of the camera were the only real issues I've had.



With only a suction mount on the rear hatch of a car that tagged the wall (back in 2014), the camera was rock solid and didn't go flying off or anything.

Video of the crash from my camera:

Here is information about go pro https://www.bestadvisers.co.uk/action-camera-go-pro. I used Hero 6 and made a perfect underwater and surfing video from my last trip. Can send, if you need.

I have an older Sony HDR-AS100V Action Cam. It has WiFi capability so I can control it with my phone or a remote that came with it. It does the job. Video quality is good enough and sound quality is pretty good too. In this video below I didn't have it mounted very tightly so it was rattling on the roll cage a little.
