Yeah, looks like around 1994 they managed to stop the camera from moving independently of the car. If you watch TV shows in which they attach a camera to a walking person, pointed at their face, you see the same kind of eerie steadiness. Because camera and subject/car move at the same time, things appear to be steady when they're not. They're just bouncing at the same time.
