    Nice... I'll be making my annual trek to Seattle in July for the Evergreen Speedway event. That video gets me giddy.

    PS: I love the Road Atlanta setup...

    Nice video!

    ...and I really wish I went to the Formula D events that have come around here, but I haven't yet. I would love to see pro-drifting live, in person!

    Not too far from the track... I like the wide angle showing the whole scope of what's going on... real nice

    Cool video! I'll try and get some good vids when they come out to Vegas. Anyone who hasn't seen drifting in person should go check it out at least once. Anyone who has a RWD car with decent power (BMW, 240sx, 350z, etc..) should give drifting a try. Idk about everywhere else, but track days here are only ~$120-$150 to drift for the whole day.

    That looks amazing. I'm currently working on getting Motorola's window mount to allow the Droid to record through.

    The Motorola Droid's Video capability is gorgeous. I recorded a campfire me and a partner set up when going hitch hiking around the pacific northwest. Super killer clarity. I was surprised with how well the camera works in the dark. I mean, you can point a flashlight at the subject in pitch black and get quite the quality of most point and shoot cameras that offer video recording. I'm curious if you can possibly change the recording codec to maybe support DivX or even AVI for that matter.

    The thing im actually most impressed with is the audio there. My dad has been drag racing forever, and totally sounds like being at the track
