Corrected entry: In the second scene of the movie, at Dodger stadium, the Eclipse is seen with clear 'NOS' Stickers. While the next scene is in sequence, as Brian is talking about the trip to dodger stadium, and then after that, only at the end of the scene does he request to put Nitrous in his car.
Corrected entry: When Jesse pulls up to a drag race, he is in a 4 door VW Jetta with white roof, handles and seat belts - its pillars are white too. In the middle of the drag race he is in a Honda civic coupe with 2 doors (rear windows shape is coupe) black roof handles, the seat belts have no pillars, and the belts are black. (01:12:50)
Corrected entry: The Supra is a '10 second car' The Ferrari 355 he races is only a '13 second car'. The drag is incorrectly portrayed as being very close. 3 seconds is a massive advantage.
Corrected entry: Tran is seen with the other Asian guy on dirt bikes after Tran wins the Jetta. The helmets they are wearing require goggles as they do not have a built in visor. Tran is not wearing goggles so we can see his pretty face. Motorcycle people know you cannot see anything over 30 mph without eye protection. However, he never appears to struggle.
Corrected entry: In a real quarter mile race a racer would only be able to change gear about 2 times as its over in roughly 10 seconds, In the 1st race they are shown shifting gear about 5 or more times.
Corrected entry: When all the cars drive to the race at the beginning, a Honda Accord Estate with its bonnet off, pulls up and you can see the yellow Skyline parked next to it, but after that it shows the Skyline pull up and then the Accord is not there. Then when the pizza bloke pulls up, the Skyline and the Accord are parked together again in the same position. (00:15:18)
Corrected entry: In the beginning race, they mention blowing the welds off of the manifolds. If you know your metals and car parts, any manifold (intake or exhaust) that has welds has usually been damaged in the past and the weld is a quick fix. They are usually made by casts and no welds are used in making them. (00:22:08)
Corrected entry: The guy in the white shirt who starts the races at 'Race Wars' is the stunt coordinator of The Fast and the Furious.
Corrected entry: At one point during a party at his house, Dom tosses a glass bottle of beer out of a man's hand - yet there's no sound of it breaking, only hitting the ground like a large ball of metal. Throwing a glass beer such as this would've certainly caused it to break.
Corrected entry: When Brian is topping out his car in the beginning scene in the stadium lot, He shifts 8 times. No Eclipse is an "8 speed" that suddenly ends up in reverse, making 9 gears. You can see the first 5 to 6 shifts, you can hear the blow off valve for the 7th, and then the final 8th shift. (00:03:20)
Corrected entry: When the police storm the cafe for Lance, you see him get choke-slammed by an officer and the cop puts his knee on his face. When the shot changes to a close-up of Lance's face, the cop puts his knee on his face again. (01:02:55)
Corrected entry: In the first street race the amount of racers around at the end of the race is less than the number of cars marking out the track. (00:22:00)
