Me chasing an open wheel racer.

I followed him for 5 laps before I said to hell with it and forced by him.

I finally pass the goober then slow down to let 2 others pass me (who actually know how to drive) and he passes me again. I had to follow him for another lap to get by.

thats cool. its sad that given the right car a shitty driver can keep pace with the m3. i had my ass handed to me by a crx race car that weighed 1800 lbs. it could have a lawn mower engine and still keep more speed through the tight stuff.

Where/how did you mount the camera? Also, did you have to jailbreak to get the external GPS antenna to connect?

I use a Ram Mount and suction cup it to the windshield. There is now a new antenna out,Emprum's UltiMate GPS, that you don't need to jailbreak the iphone to add and it is 5hz. I think they just came out with it a month or so ago.

I see - this antenna is attached to the phone. Still not as good for accuracy as a bluetooth GPS module attached to a roof. I had to jailbreak the phone just for that.

The two white ones that passed me were hauling ass! They were in fast cars and knew how to drive them. I was told they were clocking times in the 1:30's
