For those looking for a safe way to show technique, I suggest Harry's Lap Timer w/ an iPhone4 / touch ($15 app). It's what I use with my co-driver to analyze autocross runs. It has the capability to log OBD2 data as well. Not sure, but you *may* even be able to pair with a bluetooth headset microphone while recording to capture some very effective instructional video. Its nice to be able to overlay the data you want vs. rely on it being visible in the FOV.
You can find some good videos of OBD2 data overlayed on video using this on YouTube. I would post some but am still below the 5 post minimum for links.

I'll take a look at the video in more detail, but the clutch switch is a neat idea - so it starts with the pedal being pressed ?
One of my local forums was asking about hypermiling, so I threw a quick vid of a trip down. Figured it would be good to post here so either people learn from me, or (more than likely) you guys could give me tips for improvement!
