Meanwhile my Nissan has been in the garage ever since I bought it and I have a modest quote for £2k to get it up to scratch.

Genuine sadface. This makes me almost as sad as if it was my own thing broken in the garage.

I'm confident TT will stump up the cash and get it sorted.

Fortunately for my Nissan I had got my heart set on a 2-seater for the new year so I have no choice but to make it work at any cost, in order to justify my selfishness.

I have taken a sanguine view on it. If I spend 2k on it I will have spent 3500 on it and will know that it is perfect and that there are no nasties
You can easily spend that on one anyway and still not know what you have bought. Also, that £2k does include a cambelt change so...so....what was my point again? Oh, yes, I can have a 2 seater.

I need to get a cambelt done on my Shogun too. I've got no history of it being done previously (no history at all, ha!), and that's about £400 from my local man.

Still: fingers crossed.

You get an idea of how urgently it needs changing by looking at it, small cracks or we'v, not foolproof but an indication.

It's definitely a belt. I've been on the owners forums.

Ah, well, it's sensible to get it done then.

Or, have a go yourself?

More off road today. Excellent fun, and some pretty decent video footage courtesy of my son (again), and my dad (who I took along with us for his very first ever time in an off road car).

Nothing broke, and the Shogun crawled and battered its way phenomenally over everything. We only got stuck to the extent that I could get unstuck with a fat hoof more throttle.

I poured some of my daughter's drink of water onto a tissue to make me road legal to get home:Image

Video edits will follow, ofc.

And it took me two hours of jet-washing to get half of North Essex off the underneath this evening.

Given your laziness for looking at cars I'm surprised you got such a good one! I'm also very happy you're all enjoying it.

So glad you're having a fun time DaTho. Looking forward to the video.
Slightly related, I bought one of the same FauxPro cams as you along with a car suction mount. Image stabilisation is amazing for the money.

Completely agree, it's really very good. Obviously it's digital stabilisation, so you lose some image to achieve it - but I've started filming everything at 1440p which lets me output at the end in 1080p without loss of detail.

What do you film with yours Revol?

At the moment, nothing. I bought it just because it looked fun to have a camera on my (road going) car. I have a couple of other FauxPros from a few years back when 1080 was the highest resolution and my girls like filming in rivers and rock pools with them in the under water housings and using them to record talent shows with their friends.
I've used them on my bike mostly with a helmet and handlebar mount.

As my wife pointed out just tonight I have a bit of a camera gear fetish going on :/

ETA: Why film at higher resolution and then reduce it?

Mostly because the image stabilisation truncates the picture, but equally it gives me the potential to zoom in to the footage and not turn everything into Lego.

Remember I promised this?

I haven't forgotten but I have been a bit busy. I've got a couple to post later, and a third one to upload to YouTube. But you'll have to wait until this evening (judging by the interest in this thread, that shouldn't be a problem for anybody).

That looks ace Damo, and that camera is brilliant. Is that the Aukey AC-LC2? I have it in my head you bought two FauxPro but I'm happy to be corrected.

:like: I'm still amazed by the video quality of this camera. And the stabilisation.
What about putting the camera off the side of the car DaTho? Not too low obviously otherwise you might tw@t it off on a bit of scenery.

I think I'll put mine at the front on the bonnet but the Defender is nice and flat.

Ydi G80 I think Moles. That's what I bought too, amazing for price.
I've just bought an external two port battery charger and a couple of spare batteries too.
Also, I'm making a super heavy duty car mount. Will post pics when I get the parts and get it done.
