I bought one from these guys over a year ago. I wanted the crush proof camera mount, since I wanted to use it with my kart. Not a bad system, kind of clumsily put together and not the best recorder. It looks like they have changed the recorder now. As far as price to buy, I have not seen even a basic system for less than $700.

A national winning autocrosser showed me his video setup a couple of weekends ago at a local race. He was using a generic lipstick/bullet cam with some kind of cheapo video recorder recording to a 4GB memory card. Said he put it together for a couple of hundred bucks.

Do you remember or can you find out what kind of recorder he used?

He didn't even know. It was a cheapo one he got from Best Buy or Circuit City.
