Crazy RC Tire BallOOning - Slow Motion Study
Matt brought his Traxxas RC car over for some speed tests on various gearing, battery and motor upgrades and he wanted to see how much the tire "pancakes" or ballooned out from the centrifugal force at high speeds. http://www.youtube.com/user/Jackismycopilot Be sure to check out his new speed tests on this car with different performance upgrades. Matt and I often film together. - Visit the TAOFLEDERMAUS Blog I post what projects I am working on, sometimes post fail videos and other things. I sometimes get 1 or 2 visitors a day to my blog. I just posted a video of some of my failed rat trap videos I filmed this weekend. http://taofledermaus.blogspot.com/
Slow Motion drag race launches - GoPro HERO 3+
Having some fun with our GoPro3+Black set to 120fps mode at the latest NDIMA drag event at Palm Beach Intl raceway. We set the Go Pro next to the tires to try to capture how the rubber wrinkles on a hard launch from these race cars. Most of the raw footage was slowed down 90-95% and NO frame replicating software was used. We were very impressed how clean the frames came out while still being slowed down this far. Only cameras used in this video were Go Pro Hero 3+ Black and Silver. To purchase the gopro hero used in this video check out our friends at http://www.bulletmotorsports.com
