    LOL How bad was the 1st Fast & Furious!!!

    Guys im sitting here watching The Fast & Furious and believe i know we all loved it and it ignited an entire generation but boy is this horrible and inaccurate. Like things that make no sense like he hits the nos and the passenger side floor board falls out, or they say he fries the piston rings but yet the car still drives around fine w/ no smoke lol, how about "double clutching"? explain how hitting the clutch twice in a drag race would make you go faster? What i dont get is why not say "power shift" and make it accurate? throw a rod out the block instead of making the floor board fall down.

    Tell me what you guys think or other silly things you saw

    what I remember most about the first F&F film was the girl who played Vin Diesel's sister...
    There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works

    2jz? I don't really remember it. I wish there was a good action movie directed and written by people that were actually car enthusiasts with technical knowledge.

    Yeah I don't understand the F&F movies. Especially the more recent ones have some really sick irl cars, but the movie itself acts like they did their research on fking youtube.
    Drifting through Every corner makes you go faster is one of my favorites.

    The floor board fell out because nitrous is not for amateurs.

    Don't use it, you'll blow yourself to pieces. Plus, Vin Diesel wins anyway.

    if your car is gear limited top speed nitrous will make the exhaust blow out blue flame at a steady rate making it like a jet turbine effect!

    Also the best part is that Jarule gets not ass

    Wtf does JaRule have to do with street racing anyway? Some of that $#@! makes me so angry.

    Why can't anyone make a good, realistic movie of what it is really like?

    I can write a stupid ass script like that too, likely in one evening, while drunk.

    what does who its for have to do with things that are just flat out dumb and inaccurate in the movie?? I got no issue with the concept or the story but was there not one mechanic or professional driver on the set? When the writer said the nos will make the floor board fall down nobody said thats fing dumb or when they said he fried the piston rings that the car couldnt drive around like it was no big deal after that?? If they said the nos melted a piston and showed the motor blowing somehow the execution would be just as good except it would be accurate, if they said power shift instead of double clutch again same execution but the movie would be accurate!!

    Btw we were all children once and these "ricers" are the modern day muscle cars so before some of us had bmws allot of us had hondas,toyota, and mitsu's. i had a v-dub lol
