    Cockpit is the only view if you are trying to simulate racing, anything else is arcade IMO.

    my opinion is the best view to use is the one who you are most comfortable with it...it does not matter if it makes it look arcady or not, because the car will have the same handling in any view :wink:

    as for my I used the bonnet view. This has to do especially because me being tall and I'm used to see the hood of the car when I drive in real life :wink:

    You can assign keys to move seat closer/further/up/down. Assign the mirror keys to 4 different keys on your keyboard, then hold shift key to adjust seating :)

    I knew i could move the seat, but that is like 30 cm max (real lif comparision). I would love it if there was an option to be not stuck on the seat, like simbin does. So you can adjust it to your own racing rig.

    I like cockpit view the best. I find it easier to drive that way.

    Bonnet on ovals
    Cocpit (without the stupid wheel) on RC's

    Iam not faster or slower in any view btw bonnet'hood cam on ovals just feels better (i tend to get sick on ovals with cp view) and i have more feeling with the cars arround me.

    As for the realism aspect... i wont discuss that either lol :D
