Hey guys can anyone please help me with suggestions on a good arm for the in car camera? The plastic ones never hold in place and i cant seem to find the one i used to have. It was metal and it was pretty sturdy always got the job done, any help would be greatly appreciated.

That looks like the one we just snapped in Johnson Valley.

I’d get ahold of 239 films, probably best is on IG. They have the golden ticket.

Check UPR, they have one. Haven't tried it so I can't speak to its quality. But looks stout.

I made one similar to this a while back and never had a problem with it. Now I just use a Ram mount that clamps on the cage. I also have a longer arm for it if I need it.
this one along the aluminuim ones are your best bet, installing 4-5 at races i learned the one with ram mounts its more easy to install, the aluminium one takes a little longer to align. the UPR its cool but if you lose one part, cant get replacements.

try to never never use too much the stock GoPro Mounts, i learned losing 5-7 cameras by the years, they fail, the plastic get old and prone to crack

I have been using the Ram Mounts on the Class 5U car, Ultra 4 cars and Prerunner for the last two years without any issues.
They have a lot of options and I've put them in some pretty dumb places... Knock on wood, I haven't lost a camera yet.
Go check out @DustyDrone on Instagram and YouTube for footage.

Hey guys 239 films was nice enough to send me this link probably going to go with this one

We (SDHQ) have these on my trailer and at the shop. I sell a lot of them. AND ya know who my biggest customers are for them? All the legit media/filmer guys. It is all they buy actually so that should tell ya something about quality.

When Red Bull did the driving dirty show in 2015 they installed 4 cameras on our car using this mounts, they said we could keep them after the race and that to me is the best Go Pro arm in the market, never lost a camera and multi position, just use a simple hose clamp and attach it to any part of your car.

Just picked up a go pro mount from Joes racing products. going to give it a shot this weekend.
JOES Universal GoPro Mount - JOES Racing Products

Although after seeing this post I might have purchased the KW one due to price being lower and additional pivot axis it offers.

I have used the Ram mounts for a few years the only problem I'm having is the rubber pivot balls are starting to wear out so when I go to clean the lens mid race the camera ends up moving.

I will definitely recommend the ram mount I've used many over the past few years and never had any issues and easy to attach and remove! I have also used the kw one and it is also very good but I like the adjustability of the ram mount a little better.
