Here is my latest that I filmed all with a gopro...even not being the more expensive gopro, I still think the picture quality comes out pretty good. I plan on making a similar video for Turd's run through Calico in a couple weeks

suicideking Maybe some kind of ipod or other phone mount would work + velcro. I'll have to figure something out.

Well my flip came with a Velcro strap attachment that I used to use on my mountain bike.... I also used it on the YJ mirror and rear bumper (tube bumper) to record the sputtering sound and works great but only records 60 minutes

I haven't seen much aftermarket for the flip, especially since they have stopped production (from what I've heard) but that doesn't mean it's not out there.

turdfest will be a brutal wakeup call versus cleghorn though.
You and your video skills were definitely missed!

I need to see if I can get some kind of mount for my flip camera. There were a few that I didn't post because I was trying to film and drive at the same time, kept having to put the camera down to steer through sections.

I'd also like to get a better camera with a good lens.

Kevin in the Raptor was impressive yesterday as well. Looking forward to the next outing...
That Raptor was pretty neat! Definitely not lacking in power, just a little too wide for some of the sections. I wish I had the need for a pickup (and the cash...)

DaK Awesome.... videos, thanks for posting.

As for the TPMS... it doesn't go off right away, takes a couple of starts. Mine were set for 37 PSI. Not all pressure gauges were created equally so maybe your pressure guage is off some. Try testing the tires in the AM and going from there.

AEV pro-cal will solve your problems. Then when you get bigger tires you can adjust your computer which whill in turn calibrate your speedo for the tire size. It will also allow you day time running lights if you like that option.

Before I disabled my TPMS with my Superchips, I remember it taking up to two weeks sometimes for the warning light and beep to turn off after airing back up.

Remember that TPMS has PMS in its name so don't be surprised if it bitches and complains sometimes for no apparent reason.

When I still had stock tires, took 2 day for the damn light to go off. Pretty sure it wants them at 35 PSI.

I had them move my TPMS to my new wheels. Of course, I keep them at 30 PSI, so it's always on now. I want to get an AEV Procal which will also correct some other things to make it work better with larger tires. Pretty sure it does an adjustment to the transmission and other items.

Thanks to all that made it out for the day I had a blast!

I definitely had un-finished business with Cleghorn: This was my third time going to Cleghorn. The first time I was scared to death and did some of the stuff, but skipped a lot of it. It was my first time EVER driving off road, so yeah, I was freaked out.

The second time I had my Ace Rails on order, so skipped even more stuff than the first time because I wanted to hold out for my rails. After that second time it has been eating at me that I wanted to do it again and do most of the stuff.

Now that I have a lift, wheels, and skid plates, it definitely makes it a lot more fun. However, after seeing the stockers do most of the stuff, makes me realize what a wuss I was the first two times. You guys did great! Very impressive!

I'm looking forward to seeing many of you at Calico in 2 weeks at the Turdfest! I have some videos that I'll upload later.

Was really impressed with what it could do stock, but I need some ground clearance and better traction.

One question, Is there a way to make the tpms go back off? seems that even back at good air pressure its still triggering.
Thanks for coming....a little more height etc and you will be fine.. Talk to Stan, he can solve all those issues for you...
