Death Proof

Question: In the car racing scene between Stuntman Mike, Kim, Zoe, and Abby, I am confused as to why the car chase lasted so long. Couldn't Kim have simply slowed down gradually and shot Stuntman Mike? I mean, we hear her in an earlier scene talking about her gun and we see her shoot him after stopping. Why keep driving fast with your friend in danger and mess up the car that isn't yours?

Chosen answer: Because there wouldn't be a car chase if she stopped. It's all part of the fun.

Question: When Abby is in the store, Lee calls her. What is Abby's ringtone? It sounds familiar, but I can't place it.

Chosen answer: The tune is called "Twisted Nerve" by Bernard Herrmann. It sounds familiar because in one of Quentin Tarantino's earlier films "Kill Bill", Daryl Hannah's character was whistling it before attempting to murder Uma Thurman's character in her sleep.

Question: What happened to Lee? It never says what she was doing while the others were "out for a test drive" or if they went back for her. I heard somewhere that the guy raped her. Is this true?

Chosen answer: Since the actor is the same actor who played the raping guy in Kill Bill, it's seen as a hint that she is, in fact, raped.
