Import Tuner Challenge is a racing game that let's you drive and tune iconic japanese cars. Your main goal is to challenge other crews and individual drivers called Wanderers. The game is very stingy when it comes to achievements. You will drive 100 and 150 races before getting the next achievements. Luckily the races are very short and you will probably think to yourself "Just one more battle before I quit." The game is very addictive and the 400 races won't feel like a chore.

Step 1 - Quest Mode:
Quest Mode is the story mode of the game. You will spent most of the time here trying to finish that mode. You have to beat a total of 400 other racers to get the last achievement.

The first races are hard because your car is inferior to the other drivers. Buy the 1,000,000Cr car for beating the first boss and the game becomes very easy after that point. Soon you will unlock the 2,000,000Cr boss car and can use this while saving money for the Nissan GT-R (best car in the game) and the tuning parts for that car.

Check the achievement guide for a detailed description for beating the wanderers.

Step 2 - Time Attack:
Play this mode after beating the story mode because you can use the upgraded cars which makes this achievement a lot easier. I used the "Unknown" car which you can buy after beating "???".

Step 3 - Multiplayer:
Grab a friend and play ranked matches of battle mode on Xbox Live. You have to win 100 races. You can save some time if you let the loser grind the walls to lose faster.

The story mode is very monotonous and offers no variety. It's a forgettable racer that you probably won't look back to.

There are 27 achievements with a total of 1000 points

  • Achivement will be unlocked by defeating Bloodhound.

    Since a lot of achievements are given for beating particular bosses, I’ll give the information on where and when to find each boss under each achievement, and what you have to do to make him show up. I’ll also give here a few tips on cars, race types, tuning, etc. since beating each boss doesn’t require any particular tips, other than knowing the track and not hitting anything.

    Cars: When you start your career, you only have 3.000.000CP so you can buy the following cars : Mazda RX-8, Nissan 180SX, Nissan Fairlady-Z Z33, Nissan Silvia, Nissan Skyline Coupe, and Toyota Supra JZA70. I personnally liked the Fairlady-Z Z33. After winning some races, you should be able to tune your car, but try to save some for a better stock car, like the RX-7, Lancer Evolution, Skyline GT-R, Impreza, or Supra JZA80. I personnally liked the Skyline GT-R BNR34. Don’t sell your old car to be able to buy a new car. You might hate the maneuvrability of your new car, and also you might need your old car to beat some wanderers later in the game.

    Tuning: All right, I’m not a pro in car tuning, but here are some things that are sure to help you in ITC. First, when you buy a part that has multiple levels, you will pay full price even if you have lower levels, so buying every levels may not be the best solution. Obviously, Engine upgrade is a good way to get more power and top speed, but is also costly. Cooling Module and Muffler also enhance your power and can be a good addition at a smaller cost. Nitro System should be bought, but not necessarily every levels of it. The change from a level to the next is small and you never get multiple boosts. All Power Train tunes are interesting since they let you adjust your car settings. Transmission lets you adjust gear ratio. If you have problems accelerating, you might want to change the ratio so your car upshifts faster. Suspension lets you adjust alignment (tire camber and toe) and suspension settings. Going with negative camber seems to be a good idea to increase grip, but do not overdo it. Go with positive toe to stabilize your camber settings. Spring rate, damper and stabilizers can all be set to hard (3-4) since you only race on paved roads. Ride height must be lowered, and lower front (traction) or back (power) more depending on your car. Brakes are important, but I don’t see the use to buy the best ones either. Finally, I don’t play too much with LSD Ratio and usually buy a good Clutch and 1.5 Way LSD. Body Tune is costly but makes the car lighter, which enhances overall speed. Buy it if you have everything else covered. I usually choose Soft Tires to have a lot of grip, and I never had any problems with tire damage. Aero is useful, cheap and kind of fun to do. Try to use parts that lower car weight. Finally, Exterior and Interior do not affect your driving. Of course, once you get enough cash, you may buy all the best parts. For complete in-game description of tuning, look at this thread.

    Race types: There are multiple ways to start a race. The usual way is riding on the highway and dim opponents to start a SP Battle. In this race, you must force your opponent to lose by making it’s yellow bar empty. Shaking off your opponent by being way ahead of him is the only way. Try not to hit anything as your bar will decrease if you make contact with cars or walls. Sometimes, diming an opponent will result in an additionnal opponent joining the race. You must then beat the 2 opponents to win the race. Some racers may also get help during the race. Finally, Chain Battles also exist, where you beat multiple opponents in succession. Opponents you have already beaten show up in green on your map, those who beat you are in pink and those you never tried to beat are in blue.

    Another way to find opponents is the Parking Areas (PA). You can start at these locations or get into them while in freeride. There, get to PA Battles, and you may find people to race against. In the PA, you will have a new race type which is the Time Attack Battle. Simply cross the finish line in first place to win. You will also meet wanderers there. Wanderers are numerous and will unlock achievements, but you must get far in the game before being able to beat one. A list of requirements to find wanderers is available in the ??? achievement description. One thing you should worry about is intersections. Once you open up multiple roads, you may get to an intersection while racing an opponent, and you have to make a decision of where to go... Choosing the wrong road will cause a draw (which will reset your winning multiplier). If you don’t know which way to go, you might want to wait for your opponent to choose before you, then follow him. However, if an opposing team is characterized by a particular track (e.g., Rolling Guys are always rolling the C1), they will always take the corresponding road at the intersection.

    Bloodhound is the first boss you will meet, and the easiest to beat. Beat every teams on the C1 at night (don’t forget to race on the inside and outside C1) to make him show up. He will appear on the C1.
