Debates on the internet..about gear..mmm I have never heard of such a thing.
If you post a pic right now I promise not to criticize your boom stick :-)
If you wait though..no promises.

I would post one of my own, but I don't own one :-x When you have the knowledge, tools, and facility's to do your own you just cant buy one.
But three years later..still nothing. Not sure what that says, but it's not good

I came to this thread 8 years ago seeking the same answers that a lot of people still ask to this day. Having found all the answers I required here, and on my own, I feel like it's my duty to help new guys get to where I am without having to a.) go through a 796 page thread, and b.) break the bank. Because of this, I've been an integral part of a lot of those debates because I'm so passionate about safety and performance without wasting a bunch of money.

It boils down to this: make your own rig, as long as it's safe, and if you find that you are lacking in performance or safety, look to those who have figured that out and they will help you.

Personally, I use the following method.

2-3 seconds for wheels/tires/car/road. This is because you're more likely to have a sharp car, and detail in those areas coveys motion best. You WANT to see the tines of the wheel, you don't want it to appear like smoke. Same with the ground. Look at the pic I posted above. Look at the sharpness of the car, the detail in the ground, wheels, tires, it all conveys motion.

4-10 seconds for background. Backgrounds are just the opposite, you need to have a longer shutter speed to streak it more, and make it as soft as possible against the sharp ground/car/wheels. Sometimes you can get away with a sharper background, like again in my shot above, but the background needs to be even to make it work. If you're rigging in front of 2 trees it's going to look pretty terrible with 2 jagged trees.

This is just a framework, as you said it depends on the light, so that could be 4-6 seconds for the car/wheels/road, and 8-20 seconds for the background.

Finally able to take the wraps off of this shot. This was done in collaboration with Easton Chang, Rig-Pro, and RGG EDU. If you are serious about learning car photography, you NEED this tutorial.

Yeah, you'd have to get it through RGG EDU.
