The 3 difficulty achievements are stackable so you will want to beat Hard quest mode with all 8 characters. I just beat Hard mode and I unlocked all 3 difficulty achievements at the same time.

In order to beat Hard difficulty you will need to max out your salvage points for your car so you will be strong enough to survive. So here is what I did to save as much time as possible with this game.

Create a custom match on easy difficulty with kill limit set to 7 kills needed to win. Then choose whichever car you will be going for first. Make all 7 enemy vehicles the Leprachan because it is the weakest car and will die quickly. Also, choose a stage to play on that you do not have 20/20 alien artifacts, so this way you will be working on that achievement also because you will find alien artifacts from blowing the environment up. I suggest picking the Oil Fields first because the layout is very good to harvest your salvage points. Now just start blowing up Leprachans to get 6 salvage points for wrecking them or 8 for totalling them. Also, a whammy will get you 2 salvage points. Mosts cars will take anywhere between 4-8 rounds of custom matches before you have 200/200 salvage points.

NOW, as soon as your first car has maxed out it salvage points go into quest mode HARD and beat the 3 rounds for that car. THEN, choose another car and go back to custom match and harvest 200 salvage points for your 2nd car. The reason I say this is because while you are harvesting salvage points for a car you will start to learn strategies that work with the car because each car is different. SO, before you start collecting salvage points for another car, you should beat the HARD quest for the car. You will never be better with a car then immediately after you get 200 salvage points since you have just played 4-8 matches with that car. No point in getting salvage points for other cars because you will lose or forget the skills you have learned with that car. So, basically you 1) pick a car 2) play custom matches until you have 200 salvage points 3) beat hard quest mode 4) choose 2nd car and repeat process until all 8 cars are finished.

Now that you have finished the process with all 8 cars, you will now have all 3 difficulty achievements and the salvage achievement. You may even very well have every achievement at this point except the xbox live achievements and the alien artifacts. So, go into free wheeling mode for any of the 5 stages that you do not have 20/20 alien artifacts. There is not a guide I know of for this, but if you blow every single thing up you should find them all. And, since free wheeling mode has no enemies and no time limit you can just keep looking as long as you need.
