A few more things have been added in the past week. For starters, the website now hosts downloadable version of Monster Truck Madness 1 and the beta versions for MTM1 and MTM2. You can find them on the mtm2.com frontpage under the utilities section the right.
More importantly, in this past week gamer121, who deals in patching and improving the 4x4 Evo 2 game, has released a Render Patch for MTM2. What does this render patch do? Well... it increases the draw distance of the game. Meaning that for the first time since the game has been released you are now able to see much further than previously thought possible. Give it a try, the results are really breathtaking and you'll experience MTM2 in a whole new light. The patch can be accessed from the same Utilities section.
Make sure to drop by the forum and give him a thank you.
Every Sunday at 6PM Pacific Time, rumble tournaments are being hosted over at Voobly.com. If enough people come out the tourney will go ahead. Zaaug's website keeps track of the tournament results (though it needs updating with the latest tournament results). Be sure to check it out.

See you there!
Despite the lack of updates, work is still getting done behind the scenes. And one of the results is MALIBU350's restored website which has a great number of models. Losing all those archives would have been a real shame. Thank you to Malibu350 for providing me with a back-up of the website.
Certain links will still continue to be broken (for example the links under the TNT section of Malibu's website). Since there are so many of them I lack the necessary time to look into each and every one. So if any of the dead links are needed, please post in the forum and I'll take care of it ASAP. A word of caution: Many of the links are gone for good.
MTMG, BinEdit and Traxx are... back!!!
Phineus' flash drive has landed and I've been rummaging through the back-ups he had from 2010. With his help and with the help of the internet wayback machine (hey, it actually helped here and there) the MTMG, BinEdit and Traxx pages have been brought back in the amount of 98%. If you find any non-obvious dead links (obvious dead links are those that point away from a MTM2.com related website) please let me know in the forum.
The restoration work is far from done as there is plenty to go on the flash drive (truck-o-rama, cale's site, kmaster, rep fan and the pictures from all the tracks and trucks up until 2010). The biggest missing one is malibu350's site :(
There's been quite alot of work going on behind the scenes in the track and truck pages. With Phineus' help I can finally announce that the interactive sorting menu is working for both tracks and trucks. It took me a long time to figure it out but with the invaluable help I received I managed to pull through. It's not 100% yet (the static links at the top and bottom of the page are not fully working yet) but it's getting there.
Also I like to take this moment and announce two new utilities have been put up aimed at helping modern machines run MTM2 more efficiently. They can be found to your right under the Utilities section, namely nGlide and Dxtory.The MTMG menu, once the website is up and running, will be updated to reflect the new utilities.
Have also decided to add Video Replays of exciting races. For those that just want to watch a video on youtube and remember the good ol' days, now you can.
