poop[edit]

I just watched this again. Gimme a ricer ride. I want the speed lines and all that junk. HAhahaha. What utter nonsense. 01:40, 30 May 2006 (UTC)

agree. is it just me or is the featured cars section in this article completely unfuckingnecessary? i mean, i could make an article on my garage, and include my red piece of shit, but would it mean anything? 35.11.242.130 07:22, 26 August 2007 (UTC)


the harpoon thing is called an ESD, but is an Electronic Disruption Device. Shouldn't that be EDD then? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.11.252.253 (talk) 01:14, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

Maybe Electronic Signal Disruption? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.121.45.103 (talk) 02:05, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

NO, it's called an ESD in the movie so don't fucking change it to EDD. I fucking changed it back because I'm trying to provide accurate info but some fucking assholes keep inputting inaccurate shit. Wiki already has a bad reputation, I can see why. It's loaded with bad and suspect information and when someone tries to fix that some other dickhead changes it back to the bad info.

Prelude[edit]

This is a snip of the "Prelude" section:

Shortly after letting Toretto escape at the end of the first film, Brian is now wanted by the FBI. He promptly leaves Los Angeles, CA, in a red Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4, heading eastbound. He travels to Phoenix, AZ, and Santa Fe, NM, winning money from other street racers on the way.

It's always been mentioned in other sources that this is NOT a VR4 he is driving, but most likely an SL. One easy way to tell this is not a VR4 is that during one of the races shown in the prelude, the front tires of the car spin, but the back tires don't. The VR4 has AWD transmission, so it is impossible to have just the front tires spin. Can we just take out the VR4 part? Sumnjim 14:19, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

I took out the "VR-4" reference, because it's obviously not a VR-4, however I'm not 100% sure if it is the bae model or the SL, so I didn't make any distiction between the models Sumnjim 14:19, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

Cleanup[edit]

I cleaned up the plot a little with better sentence structure and spelling/grammar. I did not extend the plot further than it was, however. I also updated the references in the article to the Evo that Brian drove. It has been confirmed in the 2 Fast DVD release that it was in fact an Evo VIII and not an Evo VII he was driving. --sumnjim talk with me·changes 16:48, 25 April 2007 (UTC)


Somebody didn't clean up worth a shit because it was still loaded with spelling errors and such. Vague information as well. The Evo in part 2 is a VII model. The Skyline is not a V-spec II either, it's either a standard R34 or a V-spec. V-spec II's have an air intake scoop on the hood this car doesn't have that therefore it's not a V-spec II.

Fair use rationale for Image:2fast2furious.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:2fast2furious.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.Betacommand (talkcontribsBot) 04:38, 27 May 2007 (UTC)

I don't believe that ANY film poster (and for that matter most of the non-free images held here) qualify as fair use. Fair use is for critique (typically academic) and this is purely for illustration of a film title. The same I think probably applies across the whole of the site and is another example of the blatant misuse and abuse of Fair Use (and yes, I am aware that rhymes) . 17:16, 17 September 2013 (UTC) Smidoid — Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.29.204.131 (talk)

Skyline Colour Change[edit]

I'd like to clear up the fact that it was myself who put the Aqua Metallic color in for the car before anyone looked at the book for the movie. Under an old name I put this in there last year or the year before. (SnakeEyesNinja 02:41, 6 July 2007 (UTC))

Lots more cars in the movie[edit]

Close to the end of the movie a whole heap of cars come out of a warehouse. If someone could add that into the article it would be great. Thanks. andrewrox424 Bleep 03:08, 12 August 2007 (UTC)

NCIS[edit]

I'm watching the NCIS Season 2 episode "Bikini Wax" and I was surprised when I saw two of the 2 Fast 2 Furious cars, or at least replicas of them, among a collection of street racers, those being Suki's S2000 (shown on the page and a paint job I'd recognize from a mile away) and the gold Supra Turbo ([1]) driven in the opening race of the film by the African American racer with the afro (sorry, I forget the character's name, but he's the guy that had the blowout and crashed into a billboard). Just curious if this something worthy of a mention somewhere on the page? Spartan198 01:02, 11 December 2009 (UTC)

Canon or Non-canon?[edit]

Story-wise, what is the official status of this film? I ask this because Brian's character here (as he is a fugitive on the run) conflicts with the one in Fast & Furious (wherein he becomes an FBI agent after the first film). - Areaseven (talk) 04:20, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
