Except one (thus far for me) - getting 249 km/h average in Veyron's Needle Sh*t (last race) was pure evil! Just barely completed it with 249.1 km/h after, I think, some 2 hour grind (mostly watching crashes and waiting for retry, but there you have it) and I'm still trembling. Amidst random crashing (because Veyron is an unmaveuverable rocket), random SUVs appearing out of the blue, cops crashing themselves and doing piruettes all over the road, unavoidable traffic jams and a great many lottery ticket moments, I simply couldn't take the corner which takes from airfield back to the highway, totally wasting any good start I might have had.
I'm done today. Pure evil, I'm telling you.

How on God' green earth do you control the Veyron?
Ha ha, you don't control that car, I just pointed and hoped it wouldn't get airborne. I kept asking myself if they forgot to put brakes and gravity on that car, the only tip I can give is not to run wide open and if there is a hill let off the gas as you reach the top.
The only vehicle I haven't finished all the races for is the Ford truck (SVT?), but I'm only at the Boss Mustang (going in alphabetical order) still plenty of cars left. I took down the "most wanted" with the 'Vette pretty easily, the only problem was with the #1 driver got away due to an SUV taking me out right after the "take down" part started. I had to keep chasing him and he'd just disappear off the radar, so I'd drive around and he would show up every so often fly by and I'd keep chasing, after about 20 minutes he flew by and totaled himself and as I was closing full speed he was transported behind me and he drove off. I was not happy, since I totaled myself hitting the wall he hit, but somehow I got him and finished the "list".
All in all this game has some very crappy parts and some even crappier parts, why can't I set the damn thing to skip all the race intros automatically? How does an SUV only hit me hard enough to scratch the paint but still total me? Still, I push on, I have no money to buy another game, so eventually I pick it up and keep going on my way to 100%!
