Carmageddon: Max Damage

For anyone having difficulty dealing with the AI:
Use Opponent Stinger to win. It's super cheap to buy, it utterly handicaps them for the entire match if you don't wreck them (or makes them easier to wreck in classic karma), they can't repair themselves out of it either, unless they get lucky with a blue barrel. It even works on the police units, making them vulnerable and way easier to kill.

It's basically an 'I win' button. The only reason why you wouldn't want to use it is if you're one of those 'challenge' pansies that seek nothing but a gameplay-lashing to your butt hole. you masochistic hussy.

This won't help you if Peds fall out of world forever and don't die although.
Opponent Stinger is the best thing to help you hunt down all the Peds in peace. While you're bouncing along the rooftops, the AI cars are smashing themselves to death at the base of the building because they have no concept of a Z plane.
The only problem are the tracked vehicles. Because...there are...essentially *no* tires for you to stinger off, but there are usually not enough for it to make it entirely redundant. That being said, The Splitter Ray can be very good as well, as long as the car in question isn't the last and hasn't taken significant damage. Not only that, it's somewhat RNG if you'll get a split to effectively remove their tires. And Splitter is somewhat expensive. But when you get it right, the enemy just becomes a non-entity.

...Stella's perma ped bastard ray can be also very good, but the car itself is pretty flimsy. It's so flimsy I think I'd rather just make a go of it with the Super Suppressor rather than the Stella-mobile. I'd use the Subpressor, but for some reason, the brakes on the Subpressor are about as good as Anthem: ♥♥♥♥ing awful.
How to deal with AI easily: slaughter mortar.
In terms of just picking it up, sure. But it's too expensive. And when you have the Super Suppressor, the Slaughter Mortar becomes entirely redundant. Because you're essentially an Anvil Launcher on wheels.
Super Suppressor is ok for plowing into crowds of peds, but they can also side-step it easily.
The Electro car is flimsy, and has more torque than it should for its weight, causing it to skid and float too easily, but once you get the hang of it (and spam the Repair Damage button), you can get those hard-to-reach peds, like the ones inside buildings they're supposed to be outside of.

Although in Reincarnated, I did have to use Give Me 'Ead and such to hit peds who were deep in the walls, especially at the chemical plant.
I don't remember the Electro car ever zapping peds through walls. I remember having to use Ped Detonator (which I typically pick up or just buy when the enemies have been entirely negated) to get them.
