I am pretty sure people use the larger vehicles for the power.  Personally, I like speed, because it's much easier to escape a situation where you have low health or teamed up on.  Plus, if using a light vehicle, a ram from a larger vehicle is going to severely damage your vehicle.  Besides, most of the large vehicles have really decent specials, such as Junkyard Dog's Taxi, Vermin's rocket, and Darkside's turbo+Special.  I agree, it is annoying when all people use are the stronger vehicles.  Makes the game a bit off balanced.

Meatwagon is so damn good he's almost OP.  I remember going 20-0 or 25-1 with that guy.  The special is just too damn much.

Probably either Roadboat or Roadkill. Roadkill handles perfectly, but his special is just blegh and his armor is a tad too low for my taste. I'm trying to learn Death Warrant to replace Roadkill, but it just isn't working out. His special is just as bad as Roadkill's, only it is weaker.

Roadkill is boss! What planet are you playing on? Absolutely one of the best cars online, bar none. Let the noobs pick Meat Wagon and fire off 40dmg gurneys (aka training wheels), meanwhile I'm pounding them hard with 80+ dmg specials, can break out of freezes fast, and drive a hell of a lot faster than that stupid noob wagon. Also make sure you have the right radar size setting so it'll show gurneys as a skull and not a dot. Not knowing a dot is a gurney is gah-bidge.

It does suck RK has low armor, but that is part of his balancing for having that extra speed/handling and a very strong special. You just have to play smart and time your shields correctly based on what is about to hit you on the radar, keep getting kills to refill your AA/turbo, and you're good to go. Like most low armor cars his achilles heel is probably remotes, but that is a game engine bug/flaw that is easily exploited.

Death Warrant is not far behind Roadkill, his special can do up to 61dmg every 20 seconds, he just can't break out of freezes fast but he has more health and nice speed/handling. Jack-of-all-trades car, makes sense he is one of the default unlocked car. His special may seem weak, but right when you're out of weapons, it has regen again and you're saved!

EDIT: Further proof RK is boss, I just signed on to TM now and my skill is up to 99.79%. That was just from using RK last night in about 10 TDM games (after a 2-3 week break), mostly MVP and lots of killstreaks. Like riding a bike!

I would have to agree here.  RK has a load of benefits, and even his health isn't as bad as everyone is saying.   With his speed and handling, being able to dodge rams and missiles from a reasonable distance is pretty simple.  Honestly, I prefer Death Warrant over RK, mainly because DW feels like a heavier car, obviously takes more to put a dent in him, and his special causes almost the same damage as RK, but no need to fill up the bar again.  I may be wrong, but I think DW's ram is more powerful than RK's as well, and that's a huge thing for me.

RK's special does alot more damage than DW's. I believe with the stage 4 (ill explain) he does a max of 124 or close. DW with stage 4 tops out at i believe 76. So big difference. Plus RK has better range with his special.

Stage 4 for either RK or DW is just like 70 damage swarmers. instead of letting go when the final bar is full you continue to hold until the charge bar blinks then let go. RK goes from 96 to 124. if takes practice cuz you only got a split second and if you're late you waste the special.

Although Roadkill is generally better than Death Warrant in most situations, I wouldn't go as far to say that always is; it really depends on the context of the match. On certain maps Roadkill's amped-up special is more useful, and for others Death Warrant's better handling, weight, and durability wins out (especially on cramped maps like Skid or Gulch). For some, it comes down to personal preference. I've logged hundreds of hours as Death Warrant, as opposed to just a couple dozen in Roadkill, and I simply feel more comfortable in Death Warrant (as well as other vehicles that I've clocked substantial time in). Had I adopted Roadkill back in the early months, maybe I'd be a better player today However, that's in the past, and I've always enjoyed playing a vehicle that people considered to be underpowered anyways (prior to the health buff, that is).

Realistically, it's possible to beast in any vehicle if the circumstances are just right. A few days back I pulled off two back-to-back games in Sweet Tooth totaling 41-0 without transforming, regardless that I've spent less than four hours with the vehicle in ranked lobbies. It may sound impressive, but the fact was that the lobby was comprised totally of noobs (well, I think Mosh was there too, but I don't think he was trying anyways). It doesn't mean that Sweet Tooth is poverpowered by any means (especially without transforming), and stats rarely ever give a full picture of a game.

Roadkill has always seemed a lot more situational to me, depending on map and game mode. I think he tends to shine best in team games with a larger number of opponents because he can do some serious damage from afar. However, in smaller maps he can be at a disadvantage and can be hard to use in 1-on-1 battles, especially against veteran players who don't leave themselves out in the open for very long. Plus, he feels a bit sluggish compared to DW; he just doesn't seem to have that same quickness.

Like MM, I've logged more hours with DW and feel more comfortable with him. The other thing I've noticed is that I am much more disciplined with DW than I am with RK. After a spawn, I feel like jumping right into battle with RK because of his special, sometimes leaving me vulnerable after I've used it and am only left with a couple weapons. But with DW, I always go to collect weapons before engaging in battle, leaving me much more prepared and with more options.

I used Axel the most he has been my favorite ever since I was little. I also used Kamakaze a lot as a replacement to spectre. I also used sweet tooth, shadow and death warrent but out of all those I was really only good with Axel, Kamakaze and Death Warrent.
