"Nitrous Wizards", "Nitrous Solutions" and "MJS" are a few more.

Although "Nitrous Oxide Systems" is a company, 'nitrous oxide system' is a self-explanitory term. That would mean that it would make sense for someone to say, "I'm getting an NOS installed in my SUV".

Yo, twinkie, if you haven't been taught this at home yet it's time for you to learn. The world is not all about you. I was not saying anything to you about NOS. I was answering someone elses specific question. You were not involved in any way. Now you are.

Please explain why you think N2O is an "actual freezing gas". Nitrous oxide in and of itself is NOT cold, except maybe in North Dakota in the winter time. The floor is yours.

oh and just to add my opinion on the initial question, I believe that some elements of the movies are indeed realistic. the main example is the cars and how they are decked out. however, the majority of the movies, i.e. the plots and stunts, are totally innacurate.

of course, Rob Cohen and the Producers did not set out to make a realistic film about street racing. they set out to make films that entertained the masses and make money, which both TFATF and 2F2F succeeded in doing.

The first didn't entertain me...so I ignored the rest. Rubbish!

granted - but it did entertain quite possibly millions of other people. of course, as with any movie, there will be some (you) who are not entertained

Both, F&F and 2F2F, are too fake.

The main problems are the kids being able to cut off traffic like they do in the movie. They cut off a "1/4 mile" strip and have no problems with cops for about 15 minutes. There were just too many inaccuracies in the movie, the biggest being the Charger. At the end of F&F, please explain how a car can get a wheel and pull a wheelie at the same time? That is a total contradiction of itself. Getting a wheel would mean not getting enough traction, as getting a wheelie would be getting too much traction.

The other problem is the problem with the nitrous. Since when is nitrous oxide flammable? It's not and it damn sure wouldn't make a car blow up like it did for the Mitsu.

Now, on to 2F2F. Problems, problems, problems. You notice they get rid of the best cars in the movie within the first like hour. First off, the "Saleen" wasn't actually a Saleen. It was a Mustang GT with a Saleen body kit. Did you see any "Saleen" production numbers on the front of the car like "Saleen" does with their Mustang line? And then there is the problems with the Evo and the Yenko... We all know how true that is, really.

So is that your way of saying you thought they were really great movies like... Well I don't know who but like somebody?

I dont think the races were realistic whatsoever. A Supra Turbo being line ball with a Dodge Charger with a Supercharged V8 running 9.0. I doubt it!
