Last night I decided to go see 2 Fast 2 Furious, after all, I had rented and enjoyed the first movie... Well, this one was nothing like the first one.... This one doesn't have Vin Diesel, who I realize now really carried that movie. Paul Walkers acting was really wooden. He was not at all convincing as a former cop turned street racer. More like former Blockbuster video clerk turned Boi Racer Wannabe.... The race scenes are way to Hollywood, flames shooting out of tail pipes, nitrous boosts that burn way too long, jumping bridges Dukes of Hazard style. The first movie had better (more realistic) cars and race scenes. There are way too many product placement sponsorships plugs in this film. The whole movie is one big Snap-On, Sobe, Mitsubishi, commercial. Yes, the Mistsu Lancer EVO is a fast car, But so is the Subu WRX, but I guess Subu didn't want to pay $$$ to have their car featured in the film. Daimer Chysler donated A LOT of cars and trucks for this film. I don't think there was a single Honda featured prominently in the movie, and Honda pretty much dominates the street racing community. Instead it was all Dodge, all the time, they had at least two Mistsu Eclipses, which is a great (slow) car made for the teenage daughters of rich parents.... The women in the this movie were as ugly as the cars, a flat cheasted Hispanic with a mouth like a carp, and an Asian ghetto mamma with a prune face. The movie takes place in Florida, south beach I think. My apologies to those of you who live in Florida...because if the people there are anywhere near as swarthy looking as depicted in the film, I never want to go there. Way too many silk shirts, gold chains and a definite surplus of chest hair and pony tails. (my wife thought Vin Deisel and Paul Walker were both hot in the first film. The guys in this one would likely make her vomit). The only things I liked about the movie was they had a Nissan Skyline in the opening race and the Animi type computer CGI graphic "race" they played along with the credits. I want my $9.50 and the two wasted hours of my life back. Save your money, don't even rent it. If you want to see a cool car movie rent "Ronin" again or even "The Transporter."

Shoot... Anti-rice.com had some sweet teeshirts... It had the Fast and Furious thing, but with smaller writing in between, so it read "your car is neither FAST nor FURIOUS" He was only selling them for a short run, and they're not there on his site... I wanted one!

You consider their "10 second" cars in the first one to be realistic? The new Ferrari Enzo still takes over 11 seconds to hit the 1/4 mile... some ricer with a few mods isn't going to do unless dropped from a cargo plane. Hey...maybe that's what those gay rear wings are really for! [thinking]

If you don't think that you could get a Supra into the 10s with much more than a bigger turbo, IC, and injectors, you need to re-check your figures. I hate the ricers, but give credit where credit is due. As far as the Enzo, or most other super cars for that matter, they are not geared, nor designed to run the 1/4. Not a fair comparison.

LMAO I thought the first movie sucked. If it were not for the old mopar muscle, and that dyslexic guy, there would have been no content. I see these idiots everywhere. I like to mess with them since 90% of these "sport compacts" with way tacky bolt-ons have worn out stock engines. I toast allot of them with my very slow-ass 4x4 dodge. Krylon+ground effects+fart tip = HP [%|] When I was young I always thought the poor '74-'78 Mustang II had to be the most gayed-up slow car made to look fast by idiots. Luckily for the Mustang II, the jap-car trend took over.

What I don't get is why these riceboys bother trying to trick out a family/economy car? Honda/Acura/etc does make a nice car that is reliable, but they are NOT designed nor geared for racing. Heck, for the amount of money these kids dump into their car that was made for driving economy, they could have bought a sports car! Heck, alhtough I am not a fan, a stock Honda S2000 will tear up most of these cars, and it's not that expensive. Why buy a $30k family car, drop $10-20K in mods when for $50k you can buy a car that is designed to be fast?(not to mention if you mod it..HOLD ON! Can you say..Lightenfelter modded Zo6!)

Your math is way off. More like buy a $5,000 sport compact, spend $3,000 on mods and beat $16,000.00 Mustangs all day. The Dodge SRT-4, which is a riced out Neon, is the fastest car made for under $20,000.00. faster than the "classic" american V8 muscle car Ford Mustang GT. so dont dismiss the entire class, or some kid in a WRX Sti will blow your doors off.

there is no doubt something to be said about ahving the stealth of a family car or a compact sendan with a puny four cylinder with a nasty turbo in the loop. there is nothing like smoking someone in their v8 whatever with a family car, it is good for laughs for sure. the rediculous point is when all the mods are for "appearance" and the appearance is "this car goes fast." then when the pedal hits the floor a fart can hit the pavement along with the tinkertoy rear wing and erector set roll cage and duct tape window netting with an empty aqua-net can painted to look like no2 in the rear and three dinner plate size tach and boost guages running off of the 1.3l I4 that puts out 100hp to the front wheels shod in 145/65 r14 kmart blue special goodness with their krylon sprayed three spoke wheelcover goodness blingin in the sun.

I've seen a Honda Civic run the quarter in less than 10 seconds, but the car spends most of it's time not running between 1320 trips. It's a street car, but it's never been reliable enough to be a daily driver. We've got this really cute girl here in Houston who's got a cobbled together Civic that she put together from spare parts her friends had lying around. It runs 11's and is a complete sleeper. If you didn't pop the hood, you'd never know it was anything more than a stock red civic. And she's did most of the wrench turning herself. I drive a sport compact, and get revved on all the time. Let's just say I've left more than a few rice boys with fart tips way back there, and my car's not even heavily modded. Remember the Alamo, and God Bless Texas...

I didn't see the first movie, and I doubt I'll see the second. The ricers havent gotten to the supras here yet. There are only 4-5 confirmed supra TT sightings in the KC area. I know a guy who owns a 98 supra tt, nice car, unless you have to ride on the shelf. We have many kinds of ricers in KC, rice ricers, race ricers, jbody ricers. They all piss me off. I've though about starting a side biz of making vinyl graphics, just to rip these little halfpint jap wannabe "boi"'s off.

The truth is you can make a turd go fast... I don't believe for a second you can take a couple of grand and throw it at a ricer and go in the 10's. Heck if thats all it takes why doesn't Honda own the whole automobile industry?? I mean if they can make a 10 second car for $16,000 I'd buy one. After all they already have the market,they already have the R&D....Simple answer it takes more than a few grand matter of fact it would take alot of $$$ to make a 10 second ricer. Heck check out the rice mags they do those project cars and they are in the tens of thousand range and thats with free labor thrown in. Another point is that a 10-12 second car is gonna REALLLY wear all kinda of stuff on FWD cars that they really weren't designed for. Simple fact is that 90% of rice out there don't go fast. stickers, exhaust, rims and wings. These things don't make ya go fast. Plain and simple. Yes there are exceptions to any rule...See my first sentence.
