    all the pointers are there --- ALSO get the smallest lightest camera you can scrounge or borrow. A lot easier that expensive/compex vibration mounts !! Heavey needs fluid dampeners or multi-ratre rubbers, light gets away with a bit of foam.

    If you've some cash around and intend using the in-car footage to attract more sponsors then invest in a bullet cam with an AV output to a cheap camcorder. ( and no vibration mount required )

    oooh, be prepared to be disappointed
    I can't see the DVD write head trackign through the shock loading of a rally car.
    Even "robust" tapes you get tape bounce on yumps and severe ditches

    Stopping the low vibrations is going to be even more important.
    Good luck and try lots of different solutions !!!

    Aren't rollcages made of steel? If so, good luck welding an aluminium tripod onto it.

    ah the mythical ability of welding aluminum to steel.......

    Mazda did that to the new Miata though, they friction welded a section of aluminum trunk to the steel frame....
