Is it possible to see car shadows in mirrors?

When I see cars in my rear view mirror, they have no shadows (specifically noticeable underneath the cars). Is it possible to have cars casting shadows in the mirrors?

A couple of months ago, while watching race replays from outside the car using the TV camera views, I noticed that my car was the only one casting a shadow underneath the car (despite using max settings). I managed to edit a value in one file (can't remember which one, maybe my .plr file) that enabled all cars to cast shadows and then it really looked good in those TV cam views. I'm now hopeful of doing something similar that will enable the cars in my rear view mirror to cast shadows, too. Just curious if anyone knows.
