Realistic Topspeed Mod (+ optional deformation) v3.1

This Mod aims to provide the real Topspeed of the cars in GTA V.
Additionally, Acceleration - 4x4 Distribution - Number of Gears - Weight- and Clutch Speed was tweaked to the Description of the ingame Internet or to the Real Life Counterparts of the Cars.

Next Versions will gradually cover the other Car Classes (stay tuned with the newest versions of this Mod)

Click on "Follow updates" making sure to stay tuned with the newest updates.

Now with optional more Deformation - just choose wich handling.meta you want to install

I also recommend this mod:

Topspeed is adjusted for Non-tuned versions - if you go to LS Customs and buy upgrades the Topspeed WILL increase

    I love this mod... adds so much. made it fun to play again for me.
    Love the comet actually, its a very nice drifter.
    And yes, the supercars are that quick in real life. Ok, the comet is not realistic.
    The rest of the cars are pretty much accurate. The lambo is really that fast, just fact. Everybody that is bitching... It is just realistic. Dont give full throttle, and use the brakes. You dont have to drive full throttle all the time.

    Sad to see this mod has been abandoned :( There are so many cars and bikes not included in this mod now that it makes it unusable.
    If anyone is looking for a mod that gives vehicles realistic top speeds, try this mod (link below). I found it about a week ago and it does the exact same thing as this mod, but it's up to date so All cars/bikes have proper top speeds. Although be warned, to effect all DLC vehicles there are a lot of files that need to be place in a lot of folders, so it's not straight forward.

    Anyway, thank you @TommyKaira, I understand no one can keep their mods going forever. All the best to you :)

    Sorry guys, i had fun with the mod, but it was very time consuming for me. I tested every car for about 20-30 minutes, with several game new starts. With every new updates and new cars, this was just too much for my little spare time. Maybe Rockstar will consider this feature in the next game

    Game crashes any time I try to load in with this. I have Realism Dispatch Enhanced installed, so it may be from that. I'll try to figure this out, but just putting that out there for anyone who's having the same problem.
