The Fast & The Furious

The Fast and The Furious is officially released on DVD tomorrow. I got my copy today because I pre-ordered it, and the chick from JB called me this morning to let me know they got it in.

When I saw it the day it came out at the movies I declared that it was the best movie I have ever seen. I watched it this afternoon before work and it is even better than I remember it to be. Oh yes, the cars, the girls, the stunts... Even the lines. "Nice car, what's the retail on one of those?" "More than you can afford pal, Ferrari" "smoke him"

I'm gonna get flamed for this but, oh what the hell... I want rice!!! I want a S15 200SX, with bodykit, a huge-ass rear wing, 18 racing wheels and the engine modified to produce around 500HP. Of course, I will also have 2 NOS tanks in the boot :) Gotta find a full time job to support this addiction to rice Or better yet, has anyone got a cure?

I'm going to the Motor Show on Friday, I will concentrate on looking at XR8s and TS50s rather than 200SXs and S2000s. That might help.

LOL, Don't get me wrong Kenaz, I loooove rice, but the Fast and the furious?! I got that on DVD a while ago... I enjoy watching it, but it's also great for a laugh! I was actually talking to a mate at work about it tonight, apparently, to get all the extra cars for at Desert Wars, and the street drags, they simply put an add in some papers 'Have a nice car? be here....'... oh, and also, saw this very recently, the Supra with the JZ20 engine... Is for sale :) FOR ALOT!!

Haha... I was forgetting about that part of the rice scene. Thanks ILS, you've scared me straight I promise never to build a ricer like that KB, I will wait until I have plenty of dosh before attempting a rice-mobile.

And Acid, if I had alot of money I would buy the Supra in a second. Damn, that car is worth spanking over.

One thing that I found hard to believe about the fast and the furious. How the hell did that supra keep up with the charger in the last scene, that supra was a 10 second car, while the charger ran a flat 9 second pass. 1 second is ALOT when your going at those speeds, by all logic the charger should have demolished the supra by a few car lengths. Damn movies!!!

a 10 second car does the quarter mile in 10 seconds or less... For example where Dom is explaining how he beat the dude up in the garage with the Charger.. he says 'For that 10 seconds or less, Im Free'...

I still think the charger should have killed it! C,mon the entire front end lifts up like that while the Supra putts along the ground beside it, front spoilers are not that effective.

Doesn't the charger start to pull away when Brian activates the NOS on the Supra?

Another thing I can't understand is how it takes so long for the first race scene. How far are they running because it goes on forever.
