I'm guess F&F Tokyo Drift? If people keep going to see them they will continue to make them. Rumor has it the next one will be about Muscle Cars (maybe even a guest appearnce by a GN).

What ever is profitable, I s'pose. I just saw the commercial yesterday and almost threw up a little. Deep down, the people responsible for these movies have got to be aware of their responsibilty for the recent abundance in crashes caused by stupid kids in Civics convinced that they are race car drivers.

I thought this F&F was the one with the '67 Mustang/Skyline turbo inline six combo that caused all the uproar a while back(or was it a Supra six???). I didn't see anything in the trailer, but who knows??

Yeah, according to the story it's a mustang fastback with a skyline turbo 6.


The actaul car that does the drifting has a V8 and a cosmetic fartcan to look like the "real" one.

You know I was watching the trailers and commercials and I was thinking that even the rice boys were saying "oh,God not another one" . I mean "drifting" has been around for what, a couple of years now? I think one comment I heard from the peanut gallery was"welcome to last week".

And for those of you from the clueless camp who still insist that this is a legitimate form of racing get a clue,or better yet get a life. Drifting was created by liberals to make you guys feel special. I have yet to find a rulebook on "drifting" so if one exists feel free to post a link. Drifting is part of the "dumbing down" of America and this movie supports my statement.

I was drifting before there was drifting.... called power sliding the corners. Gotta do something with all the logging roads up here. :D

it's not racing. even in japan, it's not considered racing...more like an outlaw form of showmanship with cars; considering that most drifting occurs in illegal areas.

in japan, if you want to race, there is illegal drag racing for that. :wink:

It's only one of many ways of the dumbing down of America... Between NECKCAR and "pro" wrasslin' that's enough to make you want to puke.

The article I read basically made it sound like a money thing. The first slow and delirious made $207 million and the second farce brought in $236M. They didn't have to hire any hi-dollar actors or do any magic. All they had to do was smash up some cars. For a money maker, that's a great way to do it.


Murphy once said, "Make a system even an idiot can use and only an idiot will use it."

I guess the new updated version should read "Market something an idiot will enjoy and only an idiot will give you all thier damn money for "collectables.""
