FPS Effects

I know that com_maxfps most often is capped at 125fps in defrag, but what effects on the physics would other values have with vanila q3 physics? Would higher values result in greater ground/air acceleration? Would some framerates make the client run faster/slower? Longer/shorter airtime per jump? Different OB heights? Etc. Etc.

Won't need this info for defrag in particular atm so don't worry about breaking the ruleset(if capped 125fps is a part of it). Will need it for possible exploitation in a speedrun for another id tech 3 game.

125fps is its limit. but maybe more when you have a graphics card strong enough to carry it.

It affects falling at least, due to varying velocity snapping rate.
125 was choosen from set of fpses, giving max jump height.
There was article about investigation of fps->physics effects in id software.
