Yeah, everyone wants a new hood or a chop top to make their car look sleek, but always visit the performance shop before doing any body work. You'll win more races, get more money, and THEN get the work done. And probably have enough money left over for some spinners.
Only use the A button on a turn for 90 degree angles (or more). Otherwise you're likely to spin into a building, or do a 180.
On the tournaments when it's you versus the clock, I'd reccomend using a sports bike and holding B throughout the whole thing. It's won me a few nice cars before.
As far as the hidden Rockstar logos go, here's a tip. Don't look on a busy street, or somewhere in the open. They're hidden for a reason. Look inside buildings or on grass, or in the back of the ghetto.
And erm, buy a Lotus Espirit. It's fun. >_>
TO start off with first place, get behind an opponent, and get a slip stream turbo you. Will get a fast getaway, and then speed away to victory.
I would suggest starting with a muscle car. I know most people choose tuners, but waiting until the end of the game to do all of the muscle car races can be very difficult.
