Corrected entry: In the scene toward the end of the movie when Brian is chasing the bikes the pushes the left NOS button toward the top of the steering wheel. Then when Dom and Brain are racing to the train tracks at the end he pushes the right NOS button towards the top of the steering wheel, but then to beat the train he pushes the left top NOS button again.
Corrected entry: In The First race with the 4 cars you see all 4 guys shift into first gear. If you look each hand is a white person's hand that shifts the gear. Out of all the 4 guys there are 2 white guys, a Chinese guy, and a black guy.
Corrected entry: Just before the 4 car race, when all the cars are driving from the warehouses to the start there is a shot from above and far away of the stream of cars, you can see the helicopter providing the lighting on the right of the screen, and if it was meant to be a police helicopter the race never would have gone ahead.
Corrected entry: In the final chase with the two bikes and the supra. Just before the 1st guy on the bike crashes going down hill, he is holding a firearm. A second later the firearm is gone and both hands have a firm grip on the handle bars as he crashes down the hill.
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: 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 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: 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: 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: 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)
