Yeah, that one was bad. I remember that one. It was funny how the guy watching was like, "I knew it."

Not that I'd say no if one was givin to me.. Luckly it was only a kit and glass not a real deal cobra.. I've been in a kit cobra and it had a supercharged big engine I don't remember.. But even in third it would spin the tires.. And he just about spun the tires every single time he kept off the clutch it was a 4 puck and like a on off switch..

But that's expected with light cars with larger displacement motors with gobs of torque down low and older tires that don't quite have 2013 levels of grip.

Where did the F&F quotes go?

Re-watch that scene and witness the Nissan go back-and-forth between race seats and standard POS cloth seats.

haha It is a Dirty Dancing quote! I just thought I'd mix it up. That quote would fit, though, wouldn't it? Somewhere. hahaha

I always wondered about the credentials of the tuners that were consulted for modifying these cars. I remember watching a behind-the-scenes for Tokyo Drift where they tried to make the mods actual, working mods. Whereas the first two F&F they didn't seem to care at all, as long as the cars ran for a few seconds of camera time and looked good.

Justin Lin seems to appreciate SOME level of quality in his work.

I think Justin Lin has used the same car guys for all of his movies, as I recognize the same guy in all of the behind-the-scenes DVD specials.

In Tokyo Drift, you pretty much had to go with high-powered cars to drift. It's not like straightline movie action, which doesn't always rely on the cars having tons of power to look good on film. But with the fourth and fifth movies not having that same element, they may or may not have still used modded cars.

The first two movies, on the other hand, had a lot of weaksauce cars (compared to what was being portrayed), often times not even the "good" versions of the factory car (i.e. non-turbo models when a turbo variant was available). But just be glad that Universal was persuaded by the technical consultants to not accept Dodge's sponsorship of the second movie, which would have resulted in the hero cars being Dodge SRT-4s (and not the Evo VII) -- I heard this straight from Craig Lieberman when I met him in 2008 at a GT-R meet.

I don't think that was necessarily his doing. Remember that he owned the original Blackbird R34 GT-R (which was featured in Sport Compact Car -- I distinctly remember it having a mini-turbo as the oil cap), though he later painted it blue with some orange accents on it, if I remember correctly. Then they based the GT-R in the second movie off of his, with the same body kit and stuff, but they went with a different painjob, likely to coincide with the colored exhaust flames that were different from the other cars. (I believe he also owned the orange Supra that was copied.)

He told me a lot of other stuff (some of which was later confirmed on some online videos of people going over the original script for the first movie), and it seems like there were some people in the visual effects department who seemed to insist on going with certain visuals. For example, he told me about how the original script's race scene had the NOS tubes popping off of the bottle and spraying nitrous on the windshield and hampering outward vision, but the visual effects person said that they wanted to see "sparks" somehow, and the idea got canned for the weird instance of the floor panel somehow coming loose because of NOS.

That's not to say that Craig had zero involvement in things that ended up being kind of cheesy though.

Don't be silly. They'll get the FR-S and re-badge it to be a BRZ.
