What can be done about PDR buffeting at the track?

Is there anything that can be done about the load buffeting in the PDR recordings when we are at the track? It seems that anything approaching or exceeding 100 MPH buffets really bad. I love the videos, but it's unfortunate the sound gets really bad at speed. Any ideas?

If there's a microphone you can get to, you could move it inside the cabin...I really have no idea that is just my first guess and I have noticed that when watching videos.

I always turned the sound off. The mic is located inside the car and not outside. Wind noise from having windows down would cause issues which is why I just turned off sound.

Do we know if it uses the same bluetooth mic? That one is located in the drive-side A pillar. I wonder if sticking on a very small piece of foam would help.

A material something like this:
7/11/16 - 1100 - Ordered 2017 2SS at dealer
8/7/16 - Order requested to be cancelled
8/9/16 - 2000 - New order placed
8/10/16 - 3000
~8/16/16 - 3400
9/20/16 - 6000 Delivered to Customer (That's me)

There was someone that did in fact wire a new microphone in to the PDR and moved it to another location. I'll try to find it and link it here.
