Hmmm...
To do:
  • Does Mosquito Lemon (a wanderer) require driving a Mitsubishi car (Lancer Evo, GTO/3000GT, FTO, Eclipse) in the Japanese version, in addition to defeating RATT's Red Shadow?
  • The The Fast and the Furious sticker was originally the game logo sticker in the Japanese version.
  • What about the traffic cars (related to unused text) themselves? See this video and this list of car IDs.
  • The Japanese version has intermission FMVs after you beat major bosses, as well as an i-Mode link functionality.

Despite the name, Tokyo Xtreme Racer Zero is basically a retelling of the first two Dreamcast Shutokou Battle/Tokyo Xtreme Racer games due to a platform switch to the PlayStation 2. The localized versions has almost all of the rival names changed to Western-sounding ones, once a common practice in anime brought to American television when the game was released.

Have you skipped enough days to fight the Black Bird ZERO yet? Have you defeated the 13 Devils and Zodiacs anyway?

Easter Egg Car

Hmmm...
To do:
Move to Proto section?

In the Trial version of Shutokou Battle Zero, an Easter egg car is featured, the TDF PO-1 Pointer from Ultraman (with in-game name of TYPE-TDFPO1). This car is replaced by TYPE-CT9A (Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII) in the final game.

This is an annoying vehicle that overlaps traffic lanes and rides around Tokyo's expressways
as if it owns them. It has the worst power, speed, and driving manners.

This type of vehicle has inhabited Tokyo's expressways for countless years. 
You will find them on all routes, day or night.

These gigantic vehicles have been driving throughout Japan for countless years. 
Their large size makes them awkward, and they drive around coastal roadways as if they owned them.

These vehicles slowly make their way over Tokyo's expressways late at night. 
They carry a sign reading "Under Construction" and often stop, blocking traffic 
lanes and causing unexpected late-night traffic jams. You will find them almost everywhere.

Descriptions for traffic cars, naturally unused since they are not meant to be purchased by the player. Two of them (one of them specifically describing the construction cars) appear thrice, since there are three variations of them.

Regional Differences

Honda Chassis Codes

All car chassis codes for Honda cars in the game were changed in the US release, possibly to avoid any implications of sponsorship by Honda:

JP Version US Version Corresponding Car
PP1 YT1 Beat
EF8 ML11 CR-X SiR '91
EF8G ML11C CR-X SiR '91 (glass roof option)
EG6 QW3 Civic SiR-II '93
EKC QW Civic Coupe (USDM import)
EK9 QX7 Civic Type-R '97
EK9M QX7A Civic Type-R '98
BB6S O89G Prelude Type S '96
DC2 MH5 Integra Type-R '95 (2-door)
DC2M MH8 Integra Type-R '98 (2-door)
DB8 ML3 Integra Type-R '95 (4-door)
DB8M ML5 Integra Type-R '98 (4-door)
CH9 4K1 Accord Wagon SiR-T '99
CL1 4E1 Accord SiR-T '00
CFA 4BV Accord Sedan (USDM) '99
CHA 4BU Accord Coupe (USDM) '01
AP1 JS4 S2000 '99
AP1HT JS4L S2000 '99 (hard top option)
NA1 RPT6 NSX Type R '92 (3000cc)
NA2 RPT7 NSX Type S '97 (3200cc)
AP1HTK JS4X Dark Producer's S2000
NA2K RPT7B Dreamy Ghost's NSX Type S
NA1K RPT6B Golden Wind's NSX Type R

For ease of editing, the "TYPE-" prefix has been omitted.

Curiously, one car, TYPE-RF2, went unchanged, possibly because the car in question, the Honda Stepwgn, was not sold in the US and wasn't a widely known model by JDM enthusiasts. Also, the US chassis codes for the 2-door Integra Type Rs reveal the revision year of the cars.
