Got bored and mounted my GoPro under my Challenger. It's interesting watching the suspension work, and the Pirellis spin...

Where else should I stick the camera? I might try in the fender well somewhere, or in the center of the rim lol...

how about under the hood with the engine? :surprise:
I did think about that. Would be interesting to see the flex in the body without a front strut bar. But I already installed mine so I am too lazy to take it off and film...

how about have the camera in a far corner under the hood? facing the engine and belts.
notice the movement and sound as you accelerate and decelerate. :icon_cheers:

You might be surprised how much the engine moves. I have a SP Shaker just waves in the road or bumps you seen the engine bob and rock. With 400+ pounds of cast iron and aluminum on fluid filled engine mounts, there's some mass that's affected by G forces of movement.

When you get on it, you can see the engine twist to the passenger side side and then settle back.

It would be nice to see how much contribution (if any) of the engine twist is attributed to the front cradle bushings?

Most of of its going to be engine mounts. I've know people that put poly or solid mounts - its awful for a street car...every vibration or resonance you feel and hear it.
-there's a lot of NVH filtered out by the engine mounts.

Imagine being inside a drum and then having resonance at idle or cruise - its almost as if its inside your own head.

I was half tempted on getting solid mounts thinking the cradle bushings would help give some protection...but I am at that age where hearing resonances, ticks, and buzzes in a car is no longer acceptable.
