Update from my last comment:

My installation tutorial got banned off of YouTube, so I re-uploaded here for anyone to watch for free:

This is easily one of my favorite games on this site, much less one of the best car combat games ever made! Here is some gameplay from the game, feel free to use the footage for whatever!


Here is a guide that will teach you how to install this game and many others from MyAbandonware:

Best LAN car combat game, it has all of the finesse of an arena shooter, its shocking how well these cars move! A must download, especially for the multiplayer

I agree with the other commenter, this is truly a hidden gem.

An absolute hidden gem with a few rough edges. It's one of the first games by GRIN, who would later go on to merge (IIRC?) with Overkill and make Payday 1 & 2.
The soundtrack is absolutely slapping, whether you like hard rock, intense techno or smooth 'n funky electronica. It looks great, moreso considering it's old enough to drink now, and it plays smoothly and has lots of interesting weapons, vehicles and scenarios (there's even the mandatory turret section!) that keep things interesting. The difficulty, though, can be a bit all-over-the-place: sometimes due to the physics glitching out on you, the wonky ally & enemy AI, and sometimes due to sheer imbalance in weapons, enemies, or level design.
Be sure to install the patches below, and if you want to mess around even more with the game, check out Wolfy's Mod on ModDB.
Thanks for the upload, by the way :)

One of my favorite hidden gems, the game is developed by Swedish studio and from what I remember the game had really good graphics for its time, voice acting and humor.
