Battle Gear 4 Tuned was an update to Battle Gear 4, and the last game in the Battle Gear series, released by Taito in 2006. Alongside the original Battle Gear 4, the game saw a direction change of trying of more of being a coin-operated Gran Turismo.
While the number sprites are used, the rest of these sprites are unused. The developers planned for drift mode to judge your drift in-depth, including judging different aspects of your drift and the crowd reaction. This was likely dropped due to time constraints.
Unused Car Slots
The game has a number of cars which were cut from the final game, including a cut manufacturer, Daihatsu.

Are the factory-tuned cars in the English version? The attract mode uses the regular versions of 350Z and FD RX-7 in the drift track and the regular Evo IX instead of the Ralliart version in the dirt stadium sequence.
- NESYS key entry system is generally only available in Japan, leaving only 12 out of 24 tracks accessible.

The remaining tracks would be officially unlocked in the offline-only, export-oriented Battle Gear 4 Tuned 2010 outside Japan.
