So I got a new baby...the Nikon 500mm f4. I love using it for birds on the Gitzo II and Wimberly head.

However, I am getting ready to shoot some auto racing here in a few weeks and am trying to figure out how to use it. I have a monopod, but I think I need to get a sturdier one...however, I am not sure what people do about ball heads for lenses this big.

Anybody have any suggestions for monopods / ball heads for the big glass?
