a lot of dezert racers use the Gopro systems, they work real well. There is actually a thread on here somewhere about them. Can't help you with the units you listed, never heard of them.
good luck

I have never used any of the all-in-one units but do have some experience mounting a remote lipstick. Here is a vid I made using a Sony HAD lipstick attached to a Canon HV20.

I did have some friends run the GoPros on a trip last year and they swore by them. A lot easier to use than my set up.

Here's a quick test clip I did the other day with my GoPro HD. It's at 1080p/30 FPS but YouTube kills the quality with their conversion. It also does 720p/60, 720p/30, 960p/30 and 800x480/60. Sorry for all of the wind noise, it's from the ski rack. They actually have a very good reduction system that eliminates wind noise unless you're going 90-100 MPH. The 720p/60 is insanely clear, it looks like you're watching a sports broadcast in HD.

I purchased a GoPro Wide View last year and it's awesome!

Here's 2 mini videos I made with my GoPro.

I have a gopro, it lacks in the sound department, but it more than makes up for it in the quality of video/wide angle view/ and ruggedness.

There are a large number of weekend race car guys using the GoPro HD as well. Expect as noted poorer audio and fairly high consumption of batteries.

On the plus side you can mount the thing anywhere.

I have an SONY HD unit mounted on my roll bar with a 4gb card since trying to record to the hard drive shuts it down with all of the vibration.

IGotADisneyJeep did you use a mount in your videos? It doesn't seem to move around very much.
