This small mod fully removes the driver body from the cockpit view. However the complete driver body is still visible from any view outside the car.
One of the main benefits of this mod is that it allows you to increase the rotation of the animated wheel (default of 115 degrees) to match that of your real wheel (eg, 900 degrees on a G25) without causing a movement mismatch between the animated wheel and animated arms.
A mod to achieve a similar effect has been posted previously here at NoGrip by beep. However, it was not effective with all cars (eg, Lotus Exige), caused crashes to desktop with some other cars (eg, Porsche GT3 RS), and also resulted in the driver arms/chest also being invisible from views outside the car.
Increasing the movement range of the animated wheel is achieved by editing:
prop name="Max Steer Rot" data="115"
in the appropriate car .cpt file... eg:
Keep in mind that the steering lock setting in the tuning garage will also impact the movement range of the animated wheel.
