    cameras.ini for the F6 cameras, dash_cam.ini for the, well, dash cam, [GRAPHICS] section of car.ini for cockpit, bonnet and bumper cam

    ofc only accessible if the car has the data folder not encrypted

    You can alter the position of the driver's eyes using the onboard settings app (the icon is a helmet) but anything beyond that would require access to the data folder. Keep in mind that altering the contents of the data folder will likely result in a checksum mismatch when you try loading the car for multiplayer sessions so you'll probably be booted from the server.

    Thank you mate... anyway if i want to alter just one car, so i don't need it for online racing ( i would like to make a video) how can i "decrypt" (is that right?) a folder? And most importantly.. is it "Legal"? I'm talking about a mod, not official content

    If the data folder is encrypted then its not legal, certainly not for official content and if its a mod then its encrypted because the creator(s) don't want people messing with their work (you should respect their wishes). If you're looking for alternate camera angles the best bet is to enable dev apps and use the global camera (you can position it anywhere) or search RD for a mod called boxcam that was created by @Stereo.
