I'm at a big fat 72 or 73 rating I think, haha.
I would still have the equipment equipped from the GS pre-order even though the actual equipment wouldn't show up in the equipment choice menu for a couple seconds after entering. Worried me a bit when I tried to change a stick curve once. Same goes for the unlocked boosts themselves, I have to give the system a little time to register them.
For a little while the system would give me the D-Dman boost pack when I would try to alter attributes...probably a glitch. I'd have to go click on the boost slot and it would go back to "normal" so I could then manipulate the points.
