Car forums have a target audience. It has a certain age group of people, ratio of males to females, and the audience reading shares similar interests.
Generalized forums with no specific audience include people of all ages, gender, backgrounds, differences and customs to how they grew up - making us much likely to see more debating on a generalized forum for all kinds of people.
Kind of like, think Apple and Android fanatics; it probably wouldn't work very well if they were both on the same forum - but if it was an Apple only or Android only forum, it's a different story.
Same deal that goes on with those political forums you see out there - the ones that include both parties have the worst fighting.
