Default Front Squat technique check

Hey Everyone, I am not new to the idea of Oly-lifting (ie. garage crossfit), however I am new to focusing on perfecting my techniques in pursuit of only Oly-lifting. I will post a few links to vids and would appreciate any and all feedback, as I really want to develop my technique and strength in this awesome sport.

For the front squat vid: I feel some pain in the thoracic region after doing higher weight FS- based on the video do you think that is a result of a weak core, failure to keep my elbows high, too much weight, or something else? Thanks for any and all help. Found: http://v.coachseye.com/b6vI

Well everything looks good to me. Form is solid. But for your pain a qualified coach is suited to comment. maybe its due to a heavy workload on that day. Even I have it from time to time but for me its not pain, but I feel sort of a strain on the lower back.
