thanks for posting that link Lee.

Not sure it "worked" correctly for me as it gave me a suggested FOV of 37 which virtually turned my cockpit view into a bonnet cam(but without being able to see the bonnet)

However I did lower the FOV that I was using (80 - which was suggested by some random person on the interweb somewhere.)

By lowering it to 70(first guesstimate) the cockpit did look much more like being "in car" and consequently I instantly knocked a second off my laptime.

After watching replays with my previous FOV I'd noticed I wasn't using all the track as I couldn't judge where the edge of the track was accurately and often when being lapped I'd go off track just because I wasn't sure how far over I was.

With the FOV at 70 I could hit the rumble strips on apexes and the corner exits (both sides of the car) which led to my laptimes being more consistent too. Now I need to carry more speed thru the corners.
