Vice City Patched 1.1 PC version
Core 2 Q9550, 8GB DDR3-10666 RAM, 9800GT 512MB w/DirectX 11, Zboard keyboard w/regular keyset installed, Windows 7 Pro (64-bit) fully updated.

Periodically, I have noticed that while I'm driving, if I try to reverse the car, it backs up VERY slowly. It's almost as if I was holding the handbrake, which I'm not.

I have tried getting in and out of the vehicle. Switching vehicles will fix it sometimes.

I thought may be it was because the vehicle was damaged. But, it does it backing out of the paint shop sometimes.

I have no idea what is causing it or what fixes it. If I keep driving, it fixes itself. Very annoying when you are working on a timed mission and you can't reverse.

It doesn't seem to do it to the bikes. Although, I don't think you'd really notice on the bike.

Try deleting the gta_vc.set file from the User Files folder and run the game in Windows 98 compatibility mode. Lets us know if that makes any difference.

You will also see when on a scooter or motorcycle (while at a stop) these vehicles will "dance" left and right. Your only fix is to turn your frame limiter to "ON" in your display settings. I HAVE read that forcing v-sync in your video cards configuration setting will fix this without the need for frame limiting but this is not the case with my video card which is also a 9800 GT.

Oh My God!

KyZiX, you are my savior. I just spent a whole night trying to fix Vice City to no avail. I tried all available fixes - only turning the frame limiter on helped. However, as mentioned, it caused other problems (apart from low fps) - reversing bug and motorbike rocking. I was ready to give up re-playing this wonderful game when I read your v-sync solution. I works like a charms for me (GTX 560 Ti) - sorry that's not the case for you. Have you tried newer drivers? Anyway, thanks a lot again!

P.S. As far as I understand it's a Windows 7 issues.

I'm new to this page but if anyone is still having issues with this a file named d3d8.dll and file d3d9.dll fixes all these problems, just put these files in the root of your vice city folder

It's caused by a disabled Frame Limiter. d3d9.dll won't fix anything.

Do you have any idea of what might be the root cause of the problem?
What would be necessary to fix it without enabling a frame limiter?

No idea. Per-frame tire friction?
