GoPro-Cool mounting places?

Just picked up a Hero 3+ Silver.

Wanna throw it on the BMW and take some driving around footage and some drift footage.

Where are some cool places that you all have found to mount this bad boy on, or in a car for some cool shots?

I chuckled.

Real talk now.? Has anyone tried mounting it to the rear window inside the car and pointed it forward facing?

I'm really tempted to be a complete dickhead but in rare form I'm gonna not do that. Mounting it inside your rear window is fine. Most people put it on their harness bar and use a fisheye lens so that you can actually reach it and turn it on/off without having to unbuckle yourself and stretch across that car.

Why would you be a dickhead anyways? No need mi amigo.

I asked a simple question, looking for some intelligent answers!
Thank you, for yours.

Doesn't the WiFi app available on mobile devices solve the issue of having to reach for it and such?

I didn't realize you had made that E36 thread I was also posting in. ST rules basically state that thou must be an asshat unless something serious and nice is posted about.

Personally I don't want anything in my pockets when driving hard, little distractions like a harness digging my phone into my leg just irk me too much. Also the GoPros usually belong to the media guys like myself so we place them where they're easily accessible when cars are in line to go for their runs. But yea the wifi app could solve that if you're okay with having your phone with you while on track.

Asshat rules seem to apply everywhere in this forum. I try to keep it as civil and serious as possible. Because quite frankly, every other post being a troll gets old quite fast.

I can agree with the distraction thing. Usually my phone sits in my door pocket whilst adrift. Do you have any other recommendations as to places to mount? I have access to the suction cup mount and the one that comes with the GoPro. (And the little adhesive thingies.)

Asshat rules apply? Well then allow me to point out that "Rockin' a EGO =]" should be "Rockin' an EGO =]" then.

Also, mounting it outside the car could probably get some cool footage and it doesn't seem like your shop should have too much trouble fabricating mounts for that.

Knew it was coming. If it was a easy process, I'd change my user name. lol

I guess it just need to start sticking it on random spots of the car and seeing how footage comes out eh?

Rear side window, helmet, harness bar, inside rear window, on a stick for your passenger to hold, on dash facing you, on passenger side dash or mid mount on roll cage facing you, etc.

Awesome guys.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll have to try some of them out this weekend! Will post up some footage and see how I do, or how I fail.

Get a piece of wood, drill two holes in it so that you can put the headrest mounts through it

Put it on the passenger side

Mount camera to board

Saw someone do this to the same affect...effect? Whatever the **** it is.

They just used a squared piece of aluminum. Almost looked like a post from a pop up canopy you'd use when you go camping.

But racecar bro, ain't nobody got headrests. But then again true #racecars have stock seats and only the driver gets a racing seat.
