Already have got the Dark Future PDFs from the Sepcialist Games website but think that they became a bit 'cumbersome' after a while with all the extra bits and are bound by the track sections.

Want something a bit more 'free movement' and not grid based.

Have a look at this.

You could try the free Axels and alooys – its based on the Full Thrust Starship rules.

"Last incarnation of Car wars plays well but SJ games just stopped"

Oddly enough, all indicators point to a packaging mistake that no one would fix. It confused the distributors and led to "low" sales (as in, "we only sold 1/6th of what we brought in, but we don't have any left"). It confused the retailers, and the ones I spoke to couldn't be arsed to correct it in their own Bleeped texting stores. This led directly to confusion for the buyer, and no reorders.

A part of my low opinion of the post-MtG games distributors in the US comes from this tragedy of errors…

The old "Krash" game would fit the bill nicely, I think. Was pretty neat, and you could use Matchbox cars for the base models, upgrading with the various Krash bits (Never terribly impressed with the basic Krash trucks themselves). As I understand it, some extremely bone-headed marketing moves killed the company that produced the game (and others), but you may be able to find components with a search on Ebay.

Definitely a simple game, but it provided us with a good amount of fun in the vein of "Death Race".

Yea. I second Krash! I loved that game. Total conversion and lots of fun.

you can use DF with off road rules…future highways and dark future in google should do it…. plus its diecast scale so easy…
