I need help remembering a board game I used to have...

It was a "Mad Max" kind of game, where each player had three or four cars and a helicopter. The object, of course, was to kill all your opponents cars. I do remember that the board itself was interesting...it was three sections, and as the game played out, the "last" section was continuously moved up to make new road...and anyone left on that last section was lost...

Does anyone remember the name of that game?

I've seen that game described here. Search the geek lists for "car combat" and see if it shows up.

Hmmmm this looks like a pretty cool game actually. Kind of has that video game side scrolling feel to it.

Look that way, but I personally would say it's just not varied enough in the action - roll, move, shoot, do your 1 helicopter ambush per road section, repeat. Though the figures and board are decent enough, I was unsatisfied.
