Default MK7: Normal view feels slippery

I started practicing using the first-person view (Gyro controls off mostly) about a month ago, and I've gotten used to it since then. I only play MK7 using it now.
Earlier tonight, I was playing worldwide, and I thought I would try playing using the normal view again. Now it feels really slippery when turning, and I crashed into a lot of walls... I immediately decided to go back to the first-person view after that race. Lol.
Driving doesn't work any different from both views, obviously. But it has been a while since I've seen the kart from behind and all that.
Well,has anyone else felt this way? I doubt anyone here actually uses the first-person view, but I could be wrong.

I've found that the circle pad makes the vehicles slide all over the place. Honestly, I don't like the gyro controls at all.

I disabled the gyro controls after an incident in first person mode led to a rather embarrassing crash...

but other than that, I've found myself using first person close to 70% of the time.. its alot easier to drive that way.

I don't like to play in First Person Mode. I always like seeing my character the whole time. Plus I don't like how it feels to drive in first person.

I never use the Gyro controls. I think it doesn't look cool.

I don't use the first person mode because it doesn't really feel like a mario kart game, and because then you can't see what's behind you and to the sides very well.
