- One featured car is the Toyota Chaser, a Camry-sized sedan powered by a 2.5 liter in-line six twin turbo. The same engine powers the Toyota Soarer (the Japanese version of the Lexus SC300/400), the Toyota Aristo (the Japanese version of the Lexus GS300/400), and the 1987-92 Toyota Supra.
- Various boosted cars (such as the RX-7) do not make the signature sounds of upgraded turbocharged cars throughout the film, such as the turbo spooling and the blow-off valve, until they "hit the nitrous." Nitrous does not change the car's sound.

It's not much of a movie, but a hell of a ride. So what if the movie dumbs down Japanese culture to a bad yakuza movie and features Japanese characters who can barely speak Japanese? The cars are the stars here. Everything else is lost in translation.
Lin takes an established franchise and makes it surprisingly fresh and intriguing. The movie is not exactly Shogun when it comes to the subject of an American in Japan (nor, on the other hand, is it Lost in Translation). But it's more observant than we expect, and uses its Japanese locations to make the story about something more than fast cars.
For all its crashes and flash, this is a movie that drifts away as we watch it. Muscle cars and all, it's often a waste of gas.
