Cars ability to turn related to views?

Do you think any particular car can turn as well in the chase view as it does in the drivers seat?

physics are the same regardless the view you use .. so yes, cars should turn the same way .. if not something is terribly wrong .. if you have different feeling it could all be just different FOV for both cameras ... with wide FOV in chase view turns seems to be straighter compared to more realistic narrower FOV ... it can confuse you that you need less steering ..

Thanks ouvert. I supected as much. For some reason i thought I had just a little more control in-car than chase view.

The difference is all down to perception. Chase view isn't 'connected' to the car like the cockpit view is, the FOV is different, camera angle is different, etc. All of that results in your brain getting different information, which gives you a different feeling.

I have not tested in all sims Pawgy but another is the smaller the FOV can produce more fps, not much but every frame can help

In rF2 sit in pits in cockpit and change FOV real-time with fps counter up you see what I mean

Like the good answers above if you use cockpit and low FOV can make you feel more like you sit in car however it may feel weird till you get used to it, then you never notice it again ...you got to give a few hours etc
By then cockpit will be the only camera feels natural ;)

It's weird because I can drive a car in arcade games with chase view like a boss, no problem. But in simulators? God that's nightmare... XD

In Euro Truck Simulator 2 narrow FoV does help you improving FPS - a lot (-10FoV = +20FPS.)
I think it's because less stuff going on at the same time.
