Thoughts on cameras behind car
Recently while playing VDrift I've noticed that the camera's position behind the car is a little awkward. it seems to be looking directly at the car and too high up. I feel like the camera needs to be a little lower, so one can see through the rear glass and windshield of the car, and look down the road further. Perhaps it would be better to have the camera look ahead of the car a bit, and reduce the downward angle of the camera. Thoughts?

I think it'd be hard to see the track if the car was in front of it... even if you were able to see through the glass a little bit. But feel free to tweak it to see if you come up with something good, I'm sure there's room for improvement. The code is in vamosworld.cpp@744.

That is a good point, and this is why I think the camera should look ahead of the car. It should still be above it, and hopefully I guess this would put the car still at the bottom of the screen. I'll play around with it some and see what I can come up with...
