...Typical Fast and Furious movie, illegal street racing, the racer falls in love with the girl, and rice lol...What confuses me is how they said "On the other side of the world, a new style of racing rules the Tokyo underground"...Drifting's been around for 20-30 years, and is pretty big here too

It would be a bit more enjoyable if you knew that there wouldn't be all these people making their cars in "drifters" lol...

Drifting is not as big as you think. It's actually quite small. This dumb movie is going to make drifting mainstream and cause prices (of 240SX, RX7, and anything else widely used in Japan for drifting )to skyrocket. Thus making it for someone like me, who's been into drifting since High School, harder to afford such vehicles. Look what happened to the prices of Supra's, 3rd Gen RX7's, and Eclipses, after F&F.

And as far as "new style of racing", they ,mean for us across the pond. It's new to us.

Oh BTW, I found this link much better Trailer

I love it.

Course, all the technical details will be blown to hell (A mustang drifting? Possible, but not practical).

A visual feat worth paying for. I'm going in the opening week. Anybody else?

If you're part of the 8% that rock out everyday, put this in your signature

Owning a DSM is like having retarded kids. You get angered and frustrated by them yet you love them to death.

"Crappy rapper" is a redundant term.

I know it may be a little disappointing but, who won the 2005 D1 Grand Prix best of the best this year? Oh yeah, it was the Vaughn Gittin Jr. in the Falken Mustang.
Link if anyone's interested

I was gonna do a family guy take but A.) I couldn't find a "who touched the thermostat" pic, and B.) More people would have understood the Seinfeld joke.

Anyone know how to take frames from a movie and save them as jpegs???
