1st. I dont like the feeling of 3rd, never did in any car game. Comes from my driving/karting background I guess. I find with 3rd my timing tends to be off, and somehow I fit between cars better with 1st.

3rd... I'll only use it when I'm stuck behind a car and cant see past. Or if I'm running a straight and wanna have a look at my car.

I used to use 1st person on every course but Hakone, but now, I kinda use 3rd person on every course. I hate the fact that there is no hood. If there was a hood, I'd atleast be able to tell when my front end is going to hit a wall, rather than going "If my tac is covering x-ammount of wall, then Im going to clip it"

I use mostly third person because of the birds eye view, so I can see what is up ahead. This is useful for me especially for traffic, but when I play Hakone for some reason first person is my preference.

1st person gives you the rear mirror which is easier to block those behind you.

I race 3rd person since I don't need the rear view mirror... because I'm always last =\

actually 3rd person view is the best..
lets say u're in a narrow 2 lanes straight road. u're on the left lane and about to hit a car when you swerve to the right lane. and with 1st person view, u can't see whether there's a car on the right lane . so WHAM! u hit the car on the right lane and lose bloody hell loads of speed.
tts y i prefer 3rd person.. :lol:

I use 3rd, coz third is easier to check how far ur car's buttt and head is from a wall during a turn. I only use third when i need to see how far the opponents are behind me becoz i suck at visualizing. Eg. I look at the advantage meter, says 15m, i cant visualize how far away 15m is, so i switch to 1st person to have a look. But half the time i ram into traffic when i do that...coz i suck at 1st person. But that's just me.

I use 3rd person for WMMT, and 1st for all sims. The reason being in 1st person you can't really see where you're going, cause the car doesn't face the direction of travel exactly. In games like GT, it's grip all the way, but in WMMT it's a sort of mix of both (Grift? Drip?).
