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)
Corrected entry: When Bryan and Dom pull up next to the black Ferrari F355 Cabriolet in their newly restored, orange Toyota Supra, and begin to race, it is obvious that Bryan had to pull into oncoming traffic so he would not crash into the slow moving car in front of him. What you don't see is that the Ferrari has to pull onto the shoulder, which is a few inches below the road, which would make it very hard for him to get back on the road...
Corrected entry: When the gang is putting together the orange car there is a shot of someone putting on the decal that looks like an arm pointing down the side of the car, except the car has not been painted yet. The car is still silver metal and after this shot is another when the car is actually shown to be bright orange.
Corrected entry: The black civics used to rob the trucks were made from 1992-1995. The parts that Hector orders are for his three civics from the 96-2000 generation of civics (as seen when Brian sneaks into Hector's garage later on). The parts he ordered could not be used on the Black Civics, and anyone who works in an import store would know this. Brian had no reason to suspect Hector based on the parts he ordered.
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: 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 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: When Tran is talking to the guy in his shop about the empty engine bays, the empty engine bays belong to a Civic and an Integra, yet Tran makes a comment about some Nissan SR20 motors for the engine bays. Interesting motor swap.
