i use third person and switch to first person for a split second if im in the lead in battle just to look at the mirror so i know where the opponent is/predict where/when he will make the pass.

As stated. When you play WMMT (or perhaps any racing game for that matter) what view do you prefer?

Me - in-car. It's more realistic, plus I'm used to driving with a rear-view mirror. Tried behind the car a few times, but the camera seems to sway a bit when turning which can confuse me when cornering, and trying to look at the pointer at the bottom of the screen to find out where your opponent behind you is is a bit distracting. Of course I can understand behind-the-view preference - you can see your car.

1st person view (in-car), cause i'm used to that and you see the corner more clearly in 1st person view. but it has huge disadvantage on battle though... (esp. vs hiace :P)

I've been used to the 1st person (in-car) view ever since playing the IDAS games and the first two WMMT games.

BTW, wasn't there a thread like this earlier?

Well both views have its pros and cons. Some don't like the 1st person view cause it makes them dizzy. IMHO I like the Far behind Cam just a little bit. But I love the Driver's view better which is the one in Battle Gear. Don't you think this view should be included on the next WMMT arcade, guys?
Along with upgrades for HUD, gear shifter, bucket seat, steering wheel, car audio (w00t) , ETCETERA ETCETERA. What do you think?

I too think there are major pros and cons.

like the inside car view easy on cornering and more comfortable, but a little harder on the battle. If you are racing in battle with inside view and your right behind him its hard to see the sides and where you wanna make your next move to pass him you get me? specially if its a car like the hiace. so when i get close to the car i change to 3rd person so i can see more ahead and also if the opponent is very close from me and its close to finish line i change to 3rd view so i can see more better than the mirror you get me?

3rd person is good becuause easy to see oppopent behind and side, and get to see your car if you really like it and can see ahead.

I play inside

Oh, no wonder the search came out to nothing, the terminology is very different - I tend to use the words like "view", "camera", "in-car", "behind", etc when it comes to this topic in racing games (because all the racing games I've played use those terms). I use "first-person" and "third-person" in shooter games.

First person for me (or in-car view as I tend to call it), feels like when I'm driving a real car, plus I also rely on the rear-view mirror which is only available in the in-car view.

Personally I prefer 3rd person, since this is an arcade game an it would surely be to my advantage if I'm able to squeeze in-between cars and walls, and you have to admit the car graphics are best seen in 3rd person view.

But if this was Gran Turismo or something, then the inside view would be my vote, though it would be hard for me to get accustomed to it. :D

First person, so it's real-er... plus, you really feel the lurch when you bump into something or you're in a turn-heavy area. >_<
