Not if Randy Chase has anything to say about it. A former engineering manager for a company that developed security video equipment, he now offers the 'Chase camera', an on-board video recording system hooked to a camera on the hood of a car.
Chase developed the equipment to withstand being within a missile as it flies towards its target. As an amateur sports car driver he adapted the technology to his cars so he could replay his journeys. Other racers saw his videos and clamored for their own.
The Chase camera costs between $500 to $1,200 depending upon the level of recording sophistication desired by the customer. Many buyers simply purchase the camera and cables and hook to their camcorders.
Further information on the camera and order information can be found at the link.
