Thanks! And Yes, it is a 1/4-20 thread, which is standard on most all cameras.

Yes, I recommend a wide angle lens. See the screenshot below for the view of my camera mount in a BMW 330i at a Mid-Ohio driving school. You can see the gauges. He wasn’t using a wide angle lens however. Another driver in a BMW E36 M3 had one mounted on his rear headrest posts and posted a YouTube video, I just need to track that video down.

I believe it is safer due to the solid mounting and the fact that it does not obstruct your view of the track.
