Who gives a crap about cornering, every rice burner you talk about , is obsolete to domestics, in every way. In other words you cant name a rice burner that cant be beat by a domestic. Infiniti can have F1, America has everything else.

Too tell you the truth... I just want the last word.

Lots of people give a crap about cornering. Even a lot of domestic guys I know realize that there is more to racing than going fast in a straight line or a really big damn circle. Every rice burner I talk about is obsolete to domestics? You must do some research before you make statements like that. How is having a 1.3 Liter Rotary (3 moving parts internally now mind you which is a very large accomplishment in and of itself to do) that can easily produce 600 horsepower obsolete to a heavy arse 5.0 Liter or 5.7 Liter with more than quadruple the moving internal parts and weighs about 3 times as much as the 1.3 Liter????? How do you consider domestic cars still offering rear drum brakes as a standard issue as opposed to all imports now (except for the lowest priced most stripped down commuter model) offering four wheel disc brakes as a standard issue obsolete????? How do you consider the Nissan Skyline GTR all wheel drive system obsolete when it is programable so you can get the best take offs and handling as you drive. You can start out in rear wheel drive so you get the initial launch, then it switches to front wheel drive so you get a pull instead of sitting there burning rubber, then it switches to all wheel drive for maximum rubber to road contact? No domestic driveline can touch it, even Road & Track, Consumer Reports, and Car & Driver know that and have listed it.
As far as domestic cars owning every thing else? They own NASCAR and some drag racing. No domestic car owns rally racing. No domestic car owns Gran Turismo racing.
To tell you the truth, I know my stuff about cars and am open to cars of all makes and models. That is why I know these things. I do not let prejudice to domestics blind me to the fact that there are better pieces of automotive performance out there. Whether it is performance or just consumer.
I will let the initial poll results of this poll/survey have the last word. Notice the low % of the Domestics??????

My 1970 Swinger 340 has disc in front drum in back. Its over thirty years old, which new cars still use drum? What companies rally race? and as far as I know Gran Tourismo is a video game (ive never seen it on ESPN).

I also think its funny when you talk about all the cool hardware on your Skyline (riceburner equivalent too a Trans am WS-6), and in reality a posi trac Ford GT would own it. Just like I said w/out turbo, and Nos (I know, its not stock with Nos) it would just be an above average rice burner. Also who cares if the rotary only has 3 moving parts, did Car and Driver forget to mention all the domestics w/out rotary still own it.

Domestics own all drag racing, how many imports can run a 4-5 second quarter mile, NONE. Thats why they have their own (slower) classes in racing. I think America is gettin tired of this rice phase. Isn't the Neon SRT-4 the fastest stock sport compact? Dont call my love, and patriotism for America prejudice, rice boys would'nt understand.

Quite frankly I hate the look, sound, and feel of a foreign car, especially a rice burner, they put those crappy little mufflers on them, waste money on the undercarriage lighting, LED lights on the dash, and they are tiny, no room, I don't by a car to get from point A to point B in as little time as possible, I get a car to get from Point A to point B, period, I have a FORD POS, "88 Taurus, 3 Liter V6, small, underpowered engine (I think V6's are small, if I ever get a truck or SUV it will be V8 and probably Diesel for me, since diesel is much more efficient and cheap.

But one thing my car has over a Honda Civic is ROOM you can stretch your legs, you can get in without throwing out your back, people in the rear seat have room to move around, and nice trunk space, how many of these Honda Civics can claim that? I have even beat a suped up Civic in a race, not just straight drag, had to dodge traffic, I judged the gaps well, slipping through smaller gaps than they dared even though my car is a mid sized an his was a Civic (tiny), re regardless of how much money you put in one of those cars it will never be able to beat a Dodge Ram on gravel, grass, or mud, yet a Dodge Ram, especially the new Hemis, can put up a good challenge to a rice burner on the city streets, and the truck can be used for WORK, which is an important factor, especially in rural America where these trucks are used to transport goods, hauling wagons, and can even pull a Camper.

And as for the low percent for domestics, notice how many domestics you have listed? only 3! While they represent the finest of American Trucks they do not do justice to our cars, muscle cars, and the three domestics listed sti.l got 10/18 votes, and that is those three against all foreign made cars and against all other domestics.

Whats with the term "rice boy"? What just becuase you prefer American cars, you cant just label people you dont as a "rice boy"? Thats so freaking racist dude. I didnt get up in your face about religion, dont go offending me about my race. Yes, Asian people eat rice, Asian countries import cars to the states. People who eat rice and or drive Asian cars are not "rice boys" got it?

Just for your information, this is how I define rice boy. "A person who likes rice burners (annoying foreign cars)." Its kinda like the word red neck, that doesnt mean you have too be white, it just means you have a 4 by 4, or a diesel. Dont get on me for being racist, anyone (black, white, mexican, asian) can be a rice boy. Just like anyone can be a red neck. I never meant too offend anyone with that term, I didnt even know you were Asian.

It is a car term, so I understand that you took it wrong. Its not something you hear everyday.
