Car Enthusiast Club [Now Motorcycle friendly!] - First thread to 100k! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

26 minutes ago, Drak3 said:

Don't lump me in with them. I'm an enthusiast of mechanic design, be it engines, weaponry, or productive machinery. Not a guy with a wrench that reads the marketing garbage AFE/insert other "enthusiast" brand that can't legally warranty half of their products.

 

I fail to see a correlation between people screeching variations of "forced induction is more efficient!!! Reclaimed energy!!!" and anything I've said.

If you can't be civil. Please leave

 

Edit. That goes for everyone in the thread

I feel a lot safer with my dashcam, not because I'm going to catch someone doing something bad, but because in a He-said, She-said if a cop looks at the person with a normal car, and then they look at my Focus ST and see that's its decently modified, I'm worried the Cop will find me the one at fault. 

Actually, I could have potentially had a ticket I got several years ago thrown out by a judge, and even disciplinary action against the officer. Claimed I was speeding, but he was very obviously on his phone, and not even looking when I drove past. I also wasn't speeding. He screwed up, though, and it never went on my record...


Have you tried unplugging it and plugging it back in? Yes? Then have you tried downloading more RAM?

What dash cam do you run?  I've been considering getting one for quite a while now...all the reviews and such I have come across seem like paid Amazon reviews lol

I don't. I was going to get one with my next vehicle, though.

 

I have a GoPro that I use occasionally, but GoPro cameras make the worst possible dashcams.

XD no problem. I'm curious myself, too, as I haven't done any research yet on which dashcam I'm going to get.

Are you guys/gals using dashcams with rear view in the same housing? I have a regular cab F150 (regular cab 2wd ecoboost fast) and would like decent rear view also.. and not widescreen for uber only.

Also, I've seen videos of what employees at dealerships can do to modified cars by dashcam and it triggers my anxiety tenfold as a car-person.

Exactly why I have a dash cam and always stick it in my Celica when I go for a drive. If something happens they're going to blame 'the sports car' for it. Also to prevent unwarranted tickets from sticking due to being profiled by police. I generally don't get much attention but I did get stopped in front of my own house on a dead end street for 'speeding'. Cop rode my ass from just off the highway through town around two corners then when I put my signal on and opened my garage door he lit me up, asked me if I knew the speed limit on the other street, told him yes, asked me what it is, told him what it was (35), asked me how fast I was going, told him 35, told me I 'sounded like I was going fast' (???? 4th gear 35mph???? unlikely he heard anything), then he said 'oh you live here?', I told him yes I bought in a few years ago and suddenly his attitude took a 180. He realized I wasn't some kid when he walked up on me, realized he wasn't intimidating me at all when I stayed calm, and realized that since I lived here I would show up to the hearing, contest the charges, and probably get it tossed since he had no evidence like radar or pacing me (he was parked in a gas station) and that 'sounded fast' isn't going to hold up. Always dash cam. I didn't have one then but got it shortly after, knowing that it's simple math to prove my speed by timing the distance between two known points on the video to show any idiot that the cop is lying.

Hello. I have been off the forums for a little while, but now that I know this thread exists I might check back more frequently? Who knows. 

 

I own a 2009 Toyota Prius and a 1983 Mazda RX-7. I like both. I also have plenty of stories to tell.

Pre built. Gotta have that warranty.

I started with a Blacksys CH100B, installed that in my car and my sisters car later on. [1080p/30 front], 720p/30p rear. When I got the Focus, I made a slight upgrade to the Blackvue DR750S. [1080p/60 front, 1080p/30 rear]. Both came with GPS speed monitoring (the CH100B's was actually an add on module) that can either be disabled or plugged in if you dont want that. If i were to get a real upgrade from that, I'd probably have gotten the DR900S which shoots 4k/30 front. Better detail can help if oyu need to zoom into an image to read a license plate, but the 60fps helps for fast moving objects. So far I havent seen a 4k/60 dashcam, that would probably be the thing I'd shoot for even though I know it'd be like $600+ based on the DRS900's price of around $430

 

The in car footage in this video was taken from the Blacksys:

My coworker finally drove his supercharged Z32 to work again. Needless to say, its much faster than my 7. Makes roughly 300 wheel, but has not been dyno tested; it was already built when he bought it.
