Realistic Driving V is a mod for Grand Theft Auto V, created by Killatomate.
This mod makes driving physics in GTA V as realistic as possible. Physics definitions for every single vehicle are created from scratch utilizing every single available parameter. Most striking features of this mod:
- realistic driving physics (proper tire grip on different surfaces, traction curve, slip angle)
- realistic offroad driving (giving the HUGE offroad areas in GTA V a purpose, hillclimb, dirt track)
- performance of every single vehicle matches its real-life counterpart (acceleration curve, top speed, braking, grip, handling characteristics, wheelspin)
- improvements to other physics (eg making it possible to ram police vehicles, PIT maneuver).
