Real Time Handling Editor 2.1.3


A single-player script that allows editing handling values, in-game. Useful for developing handlings on-the-fly, without the need to restart the game constantly.


Extract RTHandlingEditor.asi and the HandlingEditor folder to the main GTA V folder.


Open the cheat console with the tilde key: (~)
Use the rthe cheat to open the menu.

The hotkeys, gamepad buttons or cheat code to open the menu can be changed in settings_menu.ini.

When sitting in a car, edit values by either pressing left/right, or enter a value by pressing the Enter key on an option.

The menu has options for saving the active handling to a file and loading a handling in the "HandlingFiles" folder inside the "HandlingEditor" folder, to the current car.

The accepted XML format is one Item entry per XML file.

Most options apply instantly. Some options need a repair/respawn of the car, or even a savegame reload.

Handling developers
The handling flag details are on GitHub, and the script will automatically update if newer versions are present.

Feel free to contribute, Pull requests are accepted. The initial version is populated with notes by Aquaphobic.


Take note

- For SubHandlingData entries, only CCarHandlingData is supported at this time.
- CCarHandlingData and CAdvancedData are only applied if the original handling has them, the script does not generate new SubHandlingData or AdvancedData entries.
- The table view for flags might be out of view for aspect ratios narrower than 16:9.

No FiveM
This was made for SP only. For FiveM, grab something like these:
- Handling Editor by Neos7
- Vehicle Handling Editor by Blumlaut
