Another thing is if you have max health which i think is 150% you can survive any fall in the entire game no matter how high and you will live with 5-10% health left as long as you had it full.

Sweet, Smoke and Kendl all originally had different models in the beta. In End of the Line Smoke's beta texture can be seen on the statue-thingy, there is a picture of Sweet (and possibly Kendl) sporting his beta model inside the Johnson House, and in High Stakes, Low Rider when following Cesar you'll notice that Kendl's final cutscene model has been swapped with the beta model that appears physically.
sh*t people probably know by now, but still thrown in for reference.

-The impound in every police HQ has a function....Well sort of:
Some missions have the "clear area" command that clear the area of the mission cutscene, any car that you've driven to there will dissapear and respawn at impound lot located all the way down on the parking lot of every police HQ in all of the big cities...Including buses, dump trucks and even aircrafts!

-Putting hydraulics on any car can affect it's handling, this is more noticeable in lowriders;

-The San Fierro police HQ has an interior, it's in the game but it's not used so it's just sitting there in blue hell taking disk space;

-There's also a secret tatoo parlor in blue hell, it's accessible by using the game's regular cheat codes(no need for cheat devices), a trip to there is worth the effort because you can buy tatoos that are not obtainable anywhere else in the game, to keep the tatoos just kill yourself with any cheat code or a weapon and then save the game(P.S.: Watch out for what kind of cheat you're using because it can corrupt your save file)

EDIT: I forgot to mention that all of this is for the PS2 version of the game, I don't know how it is like in XBOX and PC version.

I have always wanted to see this hidden tatoo parlor but have never managed to find it. I don't think it exists in the PC version.

If your car is damaged enough (engine smoking), the engine makes a subtle clicking noise.

As long as you have a big enough car, you can smash through that Sprunk billboard anytime before 'Reuniting the families'. The billboard will stay the way it becomes until you actually do the mission. Funny thing is, only a Landstalker, Rancher, Huntley, Sandking or anything else from that category can go through. Lower cars like the Greenwood in the mission will almost always be stopped by the 'solid' parts of the billboard.
It's a mystery how Smoke managed to pull that off...

About a month ago, I was listening to Radio Los Santos and after "Murder Rap" by Above The Law I heard people talking (like after a song most of the time, or talking about the weather, the radio station, etc) and the music in the backround sounded like "Dopeman" by N.W.A. But then again the song samples "Funky Worm" by the Ohio Players which can be heard on Bounce FM.

On XBOX and PC that bug has actually been fixed, so those tattoos can be obtained in the San Fierro parlor.

In the U.S.A.:
The game's Black Van (aka: walkin, or step van) has hinged front doors while the American Vans have sliding doors. Drivers often leave them open if the weather permits.
The Motor Coach (aka: bus) has an entry door in the middle left side. U.S.A. the boarding door is at the front on the right. Some City Transit buses also might have a right side middle exit door.

I have read somewhere that in near starting of the game, you can visit other cities without getting the wanted level using the Blue Hell. If we get to the interior marker and then exit the interior, there wont be any police chasing you,. 

Not sure if its truth or not.

If you haven't dated Denise for a while you can hear the Radio Los Santos DJ talking about how she misses you. Not sure if this applies to other girlfriends aswell, I've only seen heard it happen with Denise.

One time, that happened to me before I did "Burning Desire", I don't know why. Is it because I have a save when I was dating her and then loaded up a new save right after that?

Keep the car hooked to the magnet and drive till you can't drive further. Then turn your car domething like this:

 
BOATBOATBOATBOATBOATBOAT
CRANE..................C
CRANEMAGNETMAGNETMAGNETA
CRANE..................R
Then try to stand in a way that (if the car front faces the boat) your left wheels touch the ground, and that the right magnet stops the right wheels from doing do. Then keep your game running for a few hours for cash. (One hour is around $10000. Idk)

You can give a GSF member a Camera to take a photo of CJ.


How?

 

Recruit a GSF member, walk up to him with the camera out, then press L1 (PS2).

 

wow it's true

something I don't know (and maybe someone does)..  will the sky crane you have to steal off the military before the casino heist mission, pick up other vehicles that you can deposit and store in your aircraft hanger?

 

wouldn't it be nice if it still had the magnet once the mission is completed?

Yes it can. But not all, since heavy vehicles won't be lifted.

did you know that you can go into debt at the casino and you can't get any credit past a million bucks, and then the mob will come gunning for you driving Vincents?  These mobsters all have lots of weapons (AKs and SMGs) and all four have a ton of cash (like the pushers do) and you can slowly pay off your debt by killing them off every time they come for you.

 

quickest way to pay down your debt and get ahead in the green, of course, is in the vigilante mission flying a Hunter in cockpit-view mode (obtained from the Heli Hell challenge at the LV airport cargo area and flown to your Verdant Meadows airstrip hanger, then you save your game immediately afterward at your most convenient safe-house/save location) - it doesn't take too long to get up to level 100 and by then your million dollah debt should be settled or close to it.

 

also, if you go to the casinos before unlocking Las Venturas and incur debt, the mob will come gunning for you in Los Santos (or San Fiero if you're up to that level in your game).  they're easy to spot when you're on the lookout for them, as they'll be driving their Vincents quite erratically.

 

enjoy!
