k, got it to work, here's the prob (maybe i'm just stupid and it most likely is because i am). i can't get any of the upgrades, visual, engine, interior, none of em work, they're all locked. even the cars. i've played for a good 3 hours, beat a lot of races, been sponsored and took those damn magazine pics. the whole time i had a stock nissan 240sx which is hella slow now (the "new" races [i beat all the ones i could find, and now i'm up against suped up cars] i always lose). help??
