Default Yet another reason not to go see 2F2F

As I was browsing through my local paper today, I happened to stumble upon an article written about the Eclispe used in 2F2F. As it turns out, they were manufactured in my home town of Normal, IL. The interesting part is that all 4 of the stunt cars that were used in the movie were BONE STOCK performance wise. The only mods done to them was the paint job and the interior redesign. They used computer effects instead of real hp to make the scenes in the movie. I think its rather funny. Apparently the cars that you hear about are only used for show, and are not in the actual movie. It makes sense when you think about it. Instead of having the "modded" cars go really fast in the movie, they just probably had all of the other cars on the streets go really slow, so the "modded" ones would look fast.

Here is the link to the actual article:

I drive by that plant whenever I drive between home and college. The thought had crossed my mind that the mitsu'* in the movie were likely made there.

I was watching some import show, I think it was SPR TNR (super turner) and they actually put some of the 2F2F cars thru some performance tests. I think the best 1/4 they got was a 13.9 from the pink car. Also Vin diesel and Paul Walker signed contracts that they would be in the second movie if they made it. Guess Vin isn't concearned with keeping his word

pay close attention to the stare and drive scene. paul walker shift'* then it shows the tachometer spiking at 7000 and you hear the car shift but when it goes back to his fast he shifts 3 seconds after that but you hear the sound affect of shifting. just something to look for

I think some have forgotten that IT IS JUST A MOVIE! This is like comparing Superman movies to real life! Remember people, that if it wasn't for movies like this & Ricers & their Mods, there wouldn't be stores like mine out there all! Where do you think all those Performance Mods ideas come from anyways????
