This thread just made my day. It's so stupid, even my I-know-nothing-about-cars-and-have-no-drivers-license girlfriend will laugh her *** off.

The Fast and the Furious features a Mitsubishi with a BOV that screams when the guy brakes. It was the first time I heard the GReddy Type-S brakes..
The comments by VD alone is enough to strip the whole movie of any credibility.

Slam clutch, slam gear, slam throttle. That's how you shift.

The only issue the Miata has, is shitty sync around redline. From time to time, I do it the Flora way in 1st and 2nd, only I'm using the clutch too
Although, with the Motorcraft oil, this got slightly better, so thank you

The surprising part is they actually take a LOT of abuse... Only something like 200 powershifts before it let go.
