Hello
Cameras setup is a “hard thing”…many times they’re the “heart of the game”…
Try to use a “Slow Vertex Parent” camera, instead of the Actuator one?!
Bye

how would i do that?

Sorry, no need to “Vertex Parent”…just place the camera in the “good” position, parent it to the car object, then, select the camera only, and in the “Object window” ( F7), in the “Anim Settings Panel” enable the “Slow Parent” button and “play” with the “TimeOffset:” value ( 100?)
Bye

thanx dude it works great

slow parent cameras are fun, you can also change the ob.timeOffset value in python if you want your camera to lag more or less depending on the situation.
