Corrected entry: At the beginning, during the first race scene Toretto pulls away from the white car, so there is now some distance between Toretto and the white car, yet when the camera cuts to a front view, the white car is now magically level with Toretto's bumper or very close to it.

Corrected entry: In one of the aerial shots after the first race. The police cars are driving onto the street. If you look closely you can see several police cars parked on the side streets waiting for the cue to pull onto he streets. (00:23:45)
Corrected entry: In the beginning of the movie when Brian is testing out his Eclipse on the track you will notice that the camera view has changed from the passenger seat to the driver's seat. When the camera is in the driver's seat you can tell that Brian is still driving, now on the right-hand side of the car. This can be noticed by the proximity of the door to the driver. (00:03:29)
Corrected entry: In the first street racing scene where Brian first drives up to join the others, a shot of the front underside of his car reveals a hose dangling from under the car. Too much money and effort are put into the construction of these vehicles and something this sloppy would not have been left alone.
Corrected entry: When Dom speaks that immortal line "probably blown the welds on the intakes", never could a more stupid line be spoken by someone who supposedly knows about cars. For the inlet tract to 'blow', the inlet would have to be under increasing pressure, which isn't likely as the pressure occurs in the piston chambers, not the inlet tract.
Corrected entry: In the scene where everyone gathers around Brian's car, and they are looking under the hood and asking questions; two problems arise. An actual turbo is nowhere in sight, nor a frontmount large enough to handle the immense number of pounds he claims to be pushing. Later he quotes that he spent around 4,000 to 5,000 dollars to turbo a non turbo car. Try around 15,000 when all is said and done, to turbo the exact same car.
Corrected entry: The scene starts at 38:12 on the dvd when a tow truck backs in next to Toretto's shop and Brian presents Dom and the team with his new car the one that's all burned up. Notice there is a little black import inside the shop, and the tow truck is blocking the entry to the shop. The shot goes overhead looking down at the burned up car and it's all of a sudden inside the shop facing out and no tow truck, the next shot is from inside the car and you can see it's inside the shop, the next shot is from behind the burned up car facing out and you can see the little black import is outside. (00:38:10 - 00:39:35)
Corrected entry: In the scene where Brian and Toretto pull in at Little Saigon with Tran's gang, you see Tran take off his helmet, his cousin Lance and everybody else. As Lance gets off his bike and holster his weapon, you see a female biker standing next to him, but as Lance gets his weapon and points it at Brian, she disappears. She appears and re-appears from shot to shot. (00:27:34)
Corrected entry: In the shot when Dom arrives at the first street race, you see him open his door to get out. The volume level of his car stereo increases, and after he closes the door it decreases. In fact, the driver's window is down the whole time as you can see Dom's fingers curl through the window frame to close the door. The volume level should have remained constant.
Corrected entry: Nitrous oxide is not activated like a turbo boost on a video game. You switch it on before the start of a race and it is activated at a specific throttle position. Drag racing isn't a chess game where you have to trick the other driver as the last second to win.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Jesse is looking at Brian Spilner's engine, he says "I see a cool-air intake, it's got a NOS fogger system, the T4 turbo, Dominic. I see a AIC controller, it has direct port nitrous injection..." You would not have this on any NOS or N2o setup. It would be either/or.
Corrected entry: After Brian checks on Tran who dies from falling off the bike, he looks up the hill to see Dom's Charger. Dom drives off and you see that only the passenger side wheel spins, indicating that the car doesn't have a limited-slip-differential. Later when Brian drags Dom on the approach to the trainline, both of the Charger's wheels spin which would need a limited-slip-differential otherwise, only the wheel with the least grip would spin.
