Torque

Factual error: When Ford is about to start up the Y2K bike, Ice Cube's character is giving some stats on the bike like o to 200 in ten seconds, and carbon fiber chassis, he's got it all wrong. The bike does zero to 204 in 6.1 seconds and is made of aluminum; with only carbon fiber wheels, not the chassis.

Factual error: The scenes where Ford et al escape the truck stop in the racing trailer is one huge mistake. First, there is no way that they can close and latch the door from the inside. The scene shows the truck pulling away, just as they are swinging the door closed. There is no way to latch the door from the inside of the trailer, someone outside would have to latch it as seen at the roadblock.

Factual error: In the movie, both Ford and the two chicks somehow do a burnout, lift the front wheel, and spin 90 degrees, all without moving. This is impossible. A burnout happens when you lose traction, and a wheelie happens when you have too much. And the spinning is just impossible.

Revealing mistake: When the Hummer is flying through the air, you can see that most of the underside of the vehicle is missing, the engine, transmission, driveline, fuel tanks, all gone.

Cary Ford: I just jumed my bike onto the roof of a moving train. It's amazing what you can do when you have no choice.

Trivia: At the start of the film, when Henderson has raced past the 2 cars, he goes so quickly that he forces a sign on the side of the road to spin. Look at it as it is spinning, and you can see it saying "Cars Suck".
