I surprise people all the time by flipping my car around and slamming in reverse in +100mph. With enough JDM and NOS, the drive train and engine will be fine.

Got to go: I am placing a Toyota engine in a 60s Mustang on my lunch break. Should not be a big deal, I have a buddy that looks really asian to help me out.

wow, i cant believe im the only one who liked the F&F when it first came out
i think it was 2001, i was a sophmore in HS, i loved the movie...i saw it three times in the movies (for free, hs buddies worked there, lol)
i thought it was great, but then i got my license, lol
i cant believe everyone is hating on it so much now, i cant believe im hating on it...
but it has gotten progressively worse over time, i admit
hopefully the 4th one will be the last one

Don't get me wrong.. the F&F movie (ONLY THE FIRST ONE) was actually kind of fun to watch, but holy **** did it go downhill fast as a series. Whoever they hired as their "technical advisor" should be shot.

the best part of the first movie is when they are standing next to some hondas w/ an empty engine bay and he says "i bet you a couple of sr20's would pull a prime the week before race wars"

Yes because all honda owners want a nissan sr20det in their car........

I enjoy watching the movies, even though they are really really gay. I dislike the second one the most. It's really really gay, and just too dumb to enjoy.

I liked some aspects of the third one, you have to take it all with a grain of salt. because obviously things are just gonna be out of whack. The first is still the most quotable.
