Dear developers,

As a real racing car driver I am looking for a sim that can give me a proper feeling of being inside a real car. For this, it is absolutely necessary to have a realistic "helmet cam" or in-car view. Being very disappointed with the in-car videos of rfactor 2 that you have released, I was about to forget about this sim, until I found the following mod on your forum:

This is a great improvement. Please also note the physical explanation that the guy gives. It works exactly the samen in reality, see for example the real helmet cam in the following video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?gl=BE&v=rsqu77yGpkc. My whish is for you to replace the current head movement with something similar to this. Please also take a look at Race07/GTR Legends and the likes. That has proper g-force simulation, that gives a lot of feedback about the stability and grip of the car. To my opinion, a bit of exaggeration is good, to compensate for the lack of real g-forces in your computer-seat. If you take a car to Zandvoort in the Netherlands, you need this to be able to properly judge the forces that are working on the car when driving on the old part of the track to the corner "Scheivlak". Great circuit by the way, and greatly modelled in Race07, so please take that as an example and improve on it.

Hope this message gets heard...
