The Gran Turismo franchise has always pushed PlayStation's technological limits. Gran Turismo 7 is no exception, and players are taking full advantage of developer Polyphony Digital's fancy physics engine to pop some monstrously sick wheelies.
Spotted by The Gamer, enthusiasts over on the GT7 Subreddit have taken things to the extreme and begun to compete in a new metagame, tinkering with the in-game settings in a custom match to pull off some incredible antics.
You can get on in the fun as well, as Reddit user triggerhappybaldwin explains: "There are several cars that can perform wheelies, like the VW Bug or the DeLorean DMC-12, if you set them up correctly. Adding max ballast to the rear and raise rear suspension to max height with max stiffness and lower front with softest setting will make some cars wheelie until 4th gear".

Those are some pretty sick wheelies. Especially in the second video. Truly epic indeed.
The game is currently only £34.99 in the UK at Amazon and game etc etc for some reason
Its not really manipulating the physics. Its real. Add alot of weight to the rear of any high powered car and give it a stiff suspension and it will wheelie if it grips. Pro stock factory mustangs do it the whole way down the strip.
thank god we have the share option on PS5 so we don't have to record our TV's anymore
"The Gran Turismo franchise has always pushed PlayStation's technological limits."
A weird thing to mention for a game that was also released on PS4. It doesn't exactly push the PS5 to its technological limits.
@Rhaoulos Game Running without noticeable drops in visuals with 90-110 fps since the patch from last week
Not that bad.
@Yaycandy Pretty much. All of the examples they've used - DMC Delorean, VW Beetle and Porsche 959, are all rear-engine cars, which is naturally the heaviest part of the car. All it shows is that someone modelled the physics really well.
Nah this shouldn't happen on the DMC it's heavy not to mention not that powerful. Unless there tuning these things to well above its original hp. Hopefully pd nip this in the bud soon.
@Dloki I’d say the way that DMC takes off it’s definitely been played with
Now do it in VR
@Reeneman Sure, but that's not pushing technical limits. It's just improving the frame rate.
@Rhaoulos it’s a nice technical achievement to let a game run with such a high framerate. I get your point that GT7 isn’t a full „next gen“ release… but with even better visuals such a high framerate won’t be possible.
This cross-gen phase has it’s ups and downs. Pretty happy to have these visuals with high framerates instead of even better looking but only 30 fps running games.
brings back memories of GT4 on PS2 doing 5000kmh on the test track. an then flying through the walls
