Remember that this tool only installs CarMODgeddon mods, not the old style of mods which you used to place in the ZAD folder. Just drag a CarMODgeddon mod's ZAD file onto the Minge window and it will install it to the correct place, then tick it's checkbox and click save to make the game use the mods.
Using CarMODgeddon mode you can play multiplayer with mods, but currently the game only lets you play multiplayer with people using the EXACT SAME mods enabled as you. If either of you have, say, an extra car or wheel enabled then the game will give you a data mismatch error. Hopefully this will be fixed in coming updates to the game.

Special thanks to Stainless for making such an awesome and moddable game and providing answers to my many questions; and to Errol for being a genius and doing all the hard work reverse engineering all the game's file formats and for putting up with me wasting his time on the IMG format!
