if you want to make it full get the add on disks, there are four in total, "california" "europe" "super cars" and "muscle cars". extract the zips to different folders for the moment just to avoid being confused, keep the main game folder as it is for now.
the game has files that list the scenarios and the cars, installing the add ons without messing around with floppy disks is easy, just edit those files on notepad or wordpad and add the stuff manually copying and pasting from the equivalent file in the add on folder, then copy the contents of the add on folder to the main game folder EXCEPT FOR THOSE FILES, don't replace the main game files you just edited.
1)go to the california add on folder
2)open SCENES.DAT with notepad, you'll see some text.
3)copy the text
4)go to the main game folder, let's say "TD2" and open its SCENES.DAT file in notepad
5)paste the text you copied from the add on file.
6)copy the files from the california folder to the td2 folder EXCEPT for scenes.dat, don't select that one or delete it from the california folder before selecting and copying all the rest of the files.
you can do the same with the europe levels add on, and then for the cars add ons the files are "CARS.DAT" instead of "SELECT.DAT".
it's the same basic process, go to the cars add on folder, open cars.dat in notepad, copy the text, go to the main game folder, open the cars.dat file in notepad, paste, save, and now copy the contents of the add on folder to the main game folder EXCEPT for cars.dat.
just in case, SCENES.DAT should contain this:
TDS2 Master_Scenery 6
CCC Calif_Challenge 7
ec_ European_Challenge 6
and CARS.DAT should contain this:

hi,i finded another version that already have all the car and scenery disks preinstalled if anyone don't want to have to mess whit intalling all of the addons individually,goto:
that version also haved the tandy executable (TD2TDY.EXE)thats missing from this and a lot of other pirated versions around net ,but i seen no difference from running it from that exe than from the ega exe (the graphics are still the same and the sounds are still fricking HORRIBLE and will drive you crazy so its probably best to play it with the sounds OFF or get the amiga version of the game and use amiga emulator,no?(OH,you says,BUT THERES ALSO AN SUPER NINTENDO VERSION AND SEGA GENESIS VERSION BUT DO IT HAVE ALL OF THE CARS AND SCENERY ON THEMS? I DONT KNOW,I HAVENT TESTED THOSE VERISONS YET!!!))
anyway, the game is still fun ,despite it being an really old game.ABANDONED?? maybe by some, but not by all.i've been playing it for about an hour and really enjoying it.I LOVE ALL THIS OLD SHIT =D
i think i might play some wing commander II next though,or some other racing game. i want to be an racer thoguh ! !

Oh COOL, thank you!
Now it's only missing the Tandy executable to be complete.

Found the CGA executable, TD2CGA.EXE, in this zip! Confirmed to work (didn't test the game in this download, I just added the executable to the Test Drive II folder).
EDIT: Added on the file archive.

One of the greatest car games ever made!
Even in CGA (and I have a B/W Monitor on my old Olivetti M200) it's simply gorgeous.
15 stars out of 5!!!

Damn. Why does every download package miss the CGA and Tandy executables! I WANT THEM!!!!

Best game in the Test Drive franchise (I havent played TD Unlimited 'though. ) Very cool design and feeling!
