The Fast and the Furious

Question: Jessie is using a car design program from the Supra. Does anyone know either what the program is or where to get it?

Neon_Turbo

Chosen answer: It's not a real program, just some CGI. As well as when the pictures of "what it could look like" show up. Those are existing pictures of the car.

Question: After the race at the beginning, Dom leaves his car at a car park and heads home. The police stop him and he runs, only to be picked up by Brian. Surely the police would know where he lives and call round later to question him about the evening's events?

Answer: There are two ideas of why the police did not come around. Firstly they might have found out after the car chase that Brian was an undercover cop so it would be more effective to allow him to try and discover information instead of going around and arresting Dom. The other idea is that the police might not have enough to arrest him. Dom was not the one driving when they found him and other than racing, it might be tough to arrest him.

Question: It is repeated that Bryan owes Dom a 10 second car. To me, a car has 4 wheels and an engine. What is a "10 second car"?

SAZOO1975

Chosen answer: It's a car with the power to do a quarter-mile drag race of the type depicted in the film in ten seconds.

Question: When the police break into Tran's parents house-he mouths something to them, anyone read lips?

Answer: To me, it looked like either "What are you doing in my house?" or "Get out of my house!"

Ryan Andersen

Question: I hear after the credits, there is an extra scene where you find out what happened to Dom. Can anybody describe this scene for me?

SAZOO1975

Chosen answer: The scene starts in Mexico where you see a Chevelle driving through the desert. It is driven by Dom who says that he lives his life a quarter of a mile at a time.

Question: When Dom and Bryan return to Dom's house after the police chase, Vince sees Bryan and asks Dom why he brought the "buster" there. What did Vince mean by calling Bryan a "buster?"

SAZOO1975

Answer: "Buster" is a slang term for someone who thinks they are cool but are not. It's kind of like saying "wannabe." It can also be generally used to simply describe someone uncool, without the pretense. In this context it is most similar to "dork." Either applies in Bryan's case, at least in Vince's eyes.

Answer: Because Brian busted his car in the race.

Chosen answer: Calling him "buster" implies that he was the one that got them all busted. Like being a "narc" or an informant.

Question: What car does Brian drive in the beginning before it is blown up?

Answer: 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX.

Answer: It was a Mitsubishi Exclipse RS.

Question: Why doesn't Dom's Rx7 sound like a rotary engine car?

Answer: Movie makers often use the wrong engine sounds for cars, for example, the purple Eclipse in 2F2F sounded like a boxer engine.

Question: Does anyone know if that was really Liz Taylor's old house as they mentioned in the movie?

EMTurbo

Chosen answer: Sadly no, it was was designed by architect David Fowler for his mother in 1963, not for Liz Taylor in the '50s as stated. It has since been torn down.

Question: In the first street race everyone scattered when they were informed of the police coming. Why? Surely they could say they were out for a walk, and for those with cars, a night drive?

Answer: It's pretty obvious they were gathered together for an illegal street race. And most of those cars had illegal upgrades that would have been discovered. Not only that but most of them probably had some hard drugs and weapons on them. They were all gathered in a huge group late at night with loud cars which probably breaks many regulations and codes, including noise levels. The police had everything they needed for "Probable Cause" to stop and search everybody there and find all these things.

Question: When Vince turns up at the BBQ Leon says to him "Look who it is! Coyotes R Us! I thought you weren't hungry, pumpkin?" What in the world does Coyotes R Us mean? I have been wondering this since this movie was released.

BaconIsMyBFF

Answer: I feel as though the saying is exactly what it means in the simplest terms. Since a Coyote is an animal and hunts for its meals, Leon could be referring to Vince being like a Coyote and having those traits. Vince has been aggressive and very territorial to Brian, especially at his advances towards Dom's sister. Vince is pretty much acting like an aggressive animal rather than a civilized human being.
