Grand Theft Auto IV: Frictionless

You’ll get GTA IV to go insane beyond Carmageddon or Postal by configuring wheel friction to a negative number. You wouldn’t play any game missions using this very easy mod, but going on some bat shit insane rampages is a compulsory part of all GTA games anyway. I’ll definitely try this at some point for this very purpose.

On the Windows version, this friction free effect can be achieved by editing the handling.dat file in your GTA 4 folder (the default is “C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto IV”), by reducing the value “wbias” to around -9 for each vehicle.

Here’s another video, and for the bandwidth impaired, some modest screenshots illustrating the dangers of having cars bounce around urban areas (1, 2, 3).
