To get an AAA rank you have to do enough on each request to fill up the heart meter in the top right corner.

Easiest way to get this achievement is Route D. You need to go left at the first junction, then right for every junction after that.

First stage is an easy AAA with "Keep passing cars" (try not to hit any) and "Drift more" (do an over the top drift even though the road is pretty straight, helps if you start doing a drift before you get to the word START) then take the left junction onto Bay Area.

This is also quite straightforward with "Don't crash" (make sure you don't hit ANYTHING at all going over the bridge and round up the hill - better to go slow than mess up this early) then go down the hill and you have to "Collect the coins" (stay in the middle for the gold ones, then hit as many blue ones on the right as you can) and at the bottom of the hill on the penultimate corner you have to "Drift more" once again.

Take the right junction to Big Forest. If you've got AAA on the first two stages (which you'll need to have done for this achievement!) then you'll get a ''Special Request'' from your sexy passenger. First one is simple, slow down a bit and make sure you "Hit the ghosts" (make sure you hit as many as possible, slow down on corners trying not to drift so you keep more control, and go fast on the straights) and on the final corner you have to "Drift and run through red" which is always the outside lane. Line it up early and get into a drift, adjusting the steering to make sure you enter at the beginning of the red strip and leave at the end, alternatively you can enter the strip straight-on but you'll need to hit the drift perfectly going round the corner) as you come out of that corner head over to the right junction again.

Ice Scape is a tricky course in OutRun, but with practice it's actually quite easy - there are generous runoff areas on the chicane that don't slow you down as you leave the first tunnel so use them if necessary. This stage is one long request - Special Request 2. It's called "Pass the convoy" and the whole stage is littered with big trucks. Easily the hardest stage on this route to get an AAA on. Just keep it as clean as possible, try to keep your speed up and if you overtake enough trucks the AAA will be yours. Seems to be quite forgiving about taking hearts away when you bump into them so don't stress if you nudge one or two, big collisions won't help you so best to avoid those. Hopefully you've earned enough to get your AAA and head out of the stage going right for the last time onto Milky Way.

Special Request 3 is the last one, although this is the joint hardest course in the game, this request is a breeze. It's called "Collect the stars" and you basically have to plod around the course collecting all the stars that fall from the sky. You may have noticed that on 2 sections of the course there are open 'dividers' between the two different lanes. It's best to start out by taking the left hand lane, drive through the first set of dividers over to the right hand lane, grab some stars then change back over to the left hand lane at the second set of dividers. Keep it clean, slow and grab as many stars as you can, and the finish line awaits, along with the 'Achievement Unlocked' popup.

Good luck. Try different cars if the one you're using doesn't feel right, and remember, practice makes perfect !
