Other mistake: In the opening scene where the two cars race. they use a traffic signal to start the race. This traffic signal is in the middle of nowhere and there is no intersection at this light and a single lane road. Also, there aren't even supports for the traffic light on either side (which would be necessary because the light is suspended from a wire), which is most visible during the crane shots.
Factual error: When Ford is about to start up the Y2K bike, Ice Cube's character is giving some stats on the bike like o to 200 in ten seconds, and carbon fiber chassis, he's got it all wrong. The bike does zero to 204 in 6.1 seconds and is made of aluminum; with only carbon fiber wheels, not the chassis.Sol Parker
Factual error: The scenes where Ford et al escape the truck stop in the racing trailer is one huge mistake. First, there is no way that they can close and latch the door from the inside. The scene shows the truck pulling away, just as they are swinging the door closed. There is no way to latch the door from the inside of the trailer, someone outside would have to latch it as seen at the roadblock.
Continuity mistake: When Henry confronts Ford and asks 'Where are my goddam bikes?', Ford is drinking a bottle of Bud and holding it in his left hand. However, when you get a closeup of Ford drinking from the bottle, he has it in his right hand. This occurs several times in the scene. (00:15:40)Richard Holmes
Other mistake: During the scenes when Ford and co are inside the race car trailer, there are amber lights flashing over them as if they are driving under streetlights. However, the trailer they are in does not have windows or sunroofs, as seen in all the exterior shots, so there is no way passing under streetlights would be visible inside.
Revealing mistake: During the Ford and Trey chase sequence involving the train, we see Ford jump the ramp and land on the train. Then when we see Trey riding toward the ramp but he veers off at the last second before the camera angle changes so that they can then complete the scene using CGI.Scrappy
