    The trick here is THAT PRACTICE DOES NOT COUNT. You have to play race-event-race-event-race AND FINISH IT with the alternate color (remember that the character must be picked AFTER someone else either a second controller or somebody in live). And in case you are still having trouble erase your cache (you can do it goint so Console Settings then hard drive and chose Options with Y button) and try again. Actually I had a hard time due to this little practice detail.

    Another thing. The fastest way to do it is on live on a custom race with just 2 races with 1 event per race.

    For this achievement you'll need to be playing 2 player, you can either play this online and always pick the same character as your opponent and hope you'll eventually get the achievement or if you have 2 controllers there's a much easier option.

    If you do have 2 controllers you can use these to get yourself the achievement without much hassle, now it's important to make clear that playing in practice mode does not count toward this achievement, you'll have to actually play a game with each of the piñatas in their alternate colours, the quickest game you can play is to create a custom Xbox LIVE game, online custom games consist of 2 races and 1 challenge event.

    Once you've decided which method you'll use to go for this achievement just have player 2 select the character you need to use in an alternate colour and afterwards have player 1 select the same character, this will make player 1 (you) play in the characters alternate colour. Do this for each of the 8 characters and the achievement will unlock!

    2 controllers, have p2 pick someone then you pick the same, you`ll be a diff color, play a game, repeat with diff character.

    BeanpotterMake sure you do it as stated above as p2 never gets the alternate colour.

    APB PlaysAlso, it seems like you need to complete a game for it to count. I tried to do it in practice mode and it didn't unlock.

    Captain SlenderCan also be done during online games. Easier since you can create shorter custom games.
