The eyelet? It doesn't have to be very tall, I only choose a taller one because I want my customers to have more adjustment.

Eyelet, I guess. The vertical pole in the middle of the rig that the cable passes thru. Is 6" high enough? I've seen some that are anywhere upwards of 18".

Yes, 6" is enough, I use one that's 14" I think, but it's expensive. The old one I used was 8". If you're on a budget, get the smaller one. Here's my parts list from Lowes:

- 338238 - vinyl coated 3/32" cable: 20-feet
- 22219 - 3/8" x 8" eye bolt: QTY 1
- 58097 - wing-nut: QTY 1
- 138383 - 10mm wave washer: QTY 1
- 22240 - turnbuckle: QTY 2
- 348307 - chain wire rope: QTY 2
- 348538 - 3/16" ferrule & stop: QTY 1

I always attach a strap to my camera and add a bit of resistance/tension to the rig to act as a dampener against the vibrations. They will still be there, but not as bad. Also, take a shot of the car when it's not rolling to get a sharp image of all of the details (headlights, seams, badges, etc) and layer that onto your moving image.

Awesome Iceman!

I'm starting to find out pulling is a great option since you always have tension and the baby steps you make cause almost no vibrations. We pushed the car and everytime we pushed it added vibration and shake =\

That's a great image, thanks for the BTS! That's some very impressive cloning too, to get rid of the pole over the bodywork.

I'm about to shoot my alma mater's Formula SAE car (500lb, open wheel, 100+ hp, big wings), and I think I'm going to use a very similar setup.
