    racist? how? i mentioned a slag word that is derogatory to nationality but nothing about race. i guess its ok to forget they took thousands of US lives because we've let their cars and trucks infect our culture? would you be ok if 40 years from now we were driving iraqi cars? Sorry I love my country and hate to see it slide down the tubes while everyone plants their head in the sand. I drive american because too many died fighting for it! If that makes me a racist idiot i'll sleep easy.

    Well, one small problem with that, talking only about Toyota,
    They made like 3 truck for Japan in WW2, 2 2.5 ton truck models, the KB and kc, and an amphib truck called the "Su-Ki" so they're ww2 participation was quite minimal, now Nissan, Mitsubishi, and Kawasaki, thats another story.

    It should also be noted, that Japan learned the modern art of War from none other than the US.
    WW2 is not the clean cut good v evil fight that modern history makes it out to be. Only 2 countries benifited from WW2....
    There was once a truck pull in the astrodome in which many believed Bigfoot 4 did not leave the line. The reality of the situation is that Bigfoot 4 was chained the the astrodome and moved the entire facility 300 feet.

    Sorry GM50CAL It doesn't cost $3000 to ship a pallet from east to west coast. I work at a parts store in Wyoming and we get pallets of freight, mostly from back east, including filters from Gastonia NC, and freight charges per pallet usually run $200-$250 per pallet. And they usually only take 3 days to get here. Ship out on friday and arive on monday. I can also get a 4-wheeler on Ebay from the east coast shipped to my house for $350 shipping. So $3000 is way to high for shipping.

    Maybe they don't use cars because it's not 1985 and the trucks hardly touch the cars in racing.
    What's the point of spending all that money on cars when dirt does the job and costs less?

    The cars could always get crushed in freestyle.... At least they still have them for that.
