Corrected entry: In the beginning where the green car spins out, he starts by clutching out and puts the car into first gear. He then completely releases the clutch and accelerates. This would cause any car to stall - you need to clutch in slowly in first gear. (00:03:20)
Corrected entry: Towards the end of the film where Bryan and Dom are chasing the dirtbikes, Dom hits one bike with the back of his car and the bike goes to the left, yet in the next shot, the bike flies off the hill towards the right.
Corrected entry: Dom states in the film that the Charger has a 900 HP hemi. He goes on to tell Paul Walker that the car ran 9 seconds flat in the quarter mile. Walker's supra is said to be a 10 second car. Seeing as the Charger is so much faster, the race between the two cars should not be nearly as close as it was.Glenn Morgan
Corrected entry: In the scene where Dom arrives at the first race, he is greeted by one of the extras as he gets out his car. You can see and hear him say 'Hey Vin'.
Corrected entry: In the Malibu, Dominic and Brian drive the Supra and pull up next to a Ferrari. After Dominic says to Brian, "Smoke him", a shot of both Ferrari and Supra is shown with the Ferrari's headlights in the open position. After the traffic light has changed to green and both cars drive away, the headlights are closed. (01:06:25)
Corrected entry: In the final race scene between Vin and Paul, right after they clear the train tracks, Vin's car hits the green truck. After the obviously horrible accident, the truck is just gone. One would think the driver would come over to check on any injured parties, but you never see it again.
Corrected entry: In the shot when Dom goes to see what Brian has under the hood before the 4 car race, the NOS lines in Brian's car are on the left. When he starts the race, his car torques to the right, meaning that the engine went to the left: toward the NOS lines. There is no way that Brian would have installed the NOS lines on the left side of the engine. If you torque your engine toward the NOS lines you risk cutting them. Any real street racer would have put them on the right so that they wouldn't blow themselves up. (00:14:13)
Corrected entry: It is said that it is a 1969 Dodge Charger R/T, but it has a 1968 front grill. The 69' has a chrome split down the middle, but the 68 has four round taillights (2 on each side) while the 69' has moulded body taillights (1 on each side.)
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: When the four cars are racing down the street, Dom opens up his seat and turns on the nitrous, if you notice the knob he turns is on the far right side, and in the second shot, the knob is on the far left side.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Don and Bryan first meet up with Johnny's motorcycle gang, as the motorcycles approach, there is a blue yamaha just behind the window on Don's side, when they cut to the shot inside the car, the blue yamaha is right next to Don, not only that, but it's a different yamaha. The bike outside the car has 2 circle headlights, and little red stripes down the nose, the one next to Don on the inside car shot has no stripes, and different headlights. (00:26:46)
