    If I'm running just behind the ghost car I often can't see my braking point. Unless I'm quicker than it, I find it more a hinderance than a help. Is there anyway to turn them off completely?

    Thanks.

    im pretty sure its in your motorhome, the p-q or race screen , scroll down and on the difficulty options press x then it takes you to an options menu.

    Unfortunatelly you can't disable the ghostcar. You can only disable automatic saving of the best time as a ghostcar. But that's all.

    Change the parameter (Head-Cam)in the cameras.xml :
    <Parameter name="highResInterior" type="bool" value="false" />
    <Parameter name="highResInterior" type="bool" value="true" />

    Yeah, it's been reported that this makes ghost cars and racing line invisible. It however is just a side-effect, as far as I know. You might want to edit the cars\ghost_settings.xml file instead. It contains parameters like clip_distance and clip_rate for the ghosts...if you play around with the values, you might get lucky.

    I've tried changing the ghost_settings.xml but it doesn't seem to do anything. The obvious first attempt was to set clipping from 0.95 to 1.00, in hope that it would make it 100 % transparent. I've tried 0.99 and I've tried changing the distances to no avail. Next attempt is Kocinski's advice.

    Anyone have more ideas for getting rid of the ghost car? The suggestion in this thread didn't work for me.

    Oh. I never saw that option before. And I'm pretty sure I looked. Thanks... I'm a bit mystified but certainly grateful! :)

    I've looked all over and certainly can't find an option to turn it off on the Xbox.
