Hello and welcome here. :)

This is a very weird problem, never seen it before. Only the alpha channel of the dashboard textures work, while the RGB channels not... The needles seem to be fine, instead. The hudmap is white, too.
I use dgVoodoo as well, in 2.73 version, and I keep everything unchecked in the Miscellaneous options in the DirectX tab, which are those that could give unexpected behaviours... Post a screen of the General and DirectX tabs of your dgVoodoo configuration.

and if i use the 3dfx glide files the colors are fine but the game becomes super laggy and stuttered :vsad:

I would set the VRAM to 1024 MB and unforce the resolution, since then you can change it in-game; use this tool if you want a widescreen one. The 3DFX Glide settings wouldn't affect nothing since MM2 uses only DirectX 7 libraries.
Also, use MM2Hook patcher to play the game with lot of improvements, and it could even fix that issue... Download only the file called mm2hook_dll.zip and extract it in the main game folder.

I assumed that you've already patched the game with this official patch before, but looks like you didn't.

the patch said that there was no installation of midtown madness 2 in the system, i was using a bundle that installs midtown 1 and 2 so i uninstalled it and installed the game from my old cd, now the game doesn't even launch...

So, good that you've installed the game from its original installer, so you can install its official patch, then. What happens when you try to launch the game? Maybe it only takes lot of time to run, and in that case, replace the game EXE with this one. At the end, put the MM2Hook files and launch the game. Hopefully it should go.
