The Fast and Furious franchise has given us car nerds a lot of enjoyment. These movies help shape the culture of the automotive world we live in, one quarter mile at a time. But on another hand, they also led us astray when it comes to the actual physics in some of their more famous scenes. “Busters” turbo hack, 100mph in reverse, doing a wheel stand WHILE doing a burnout? Today on Bumper2Bumper, we are gonna take a look at some of these feats of impossible physics and break out some engineering truth on some of our favorite Fast and Furious myths. Let go!

The cellular network hack also wouldn't work based on the sheer size. Many cellular networks cannot handle all the incoming calls of natural disasters, so with the normal use of day to day people and the additional thousands to tens of thousands (no clue how many cars just assuming alot looked like a busy city) of additional lines opened all at the same time to do the hack would just crash the whole network.

Not only is Dom doing a wheelie AND a burnout at the same time (props to you guys as I've never noticed that before), but he's also expertly controlling all of this without hitting his car on the ground or flipping over despite the absence of wheelie bars.

Your wrong about the NOS scene. Although NOS is non flammable, it will accelerate the burning of combustible on fire. Which is what happens on the scene. First the car is shot at gas tank, car is on fire, then fire is accelerated by NOS. You should get your facts right.

You guys are fantastic. I watched all the movies for kicks, but can you imagine all the young guys that watched these shows thinking that all the stuff that they saw on the screen was actually Possible??? I EVEN KNEW a few from the very first show where Dom could do a wheelie and get traction at the same time. Mostly all of of the guys I knew were quite nieve & just liked the action( & still are dummies about anything to do with Cars). Its a wonder that they can put gas in their cars. But all these are fantasies for people just like them, so I'm not gonna ruin their fun. It's too bad that a lot of them ended up dying, thinking that they could drive just like all the BS they saw on the screen. Oh, I also watch all of your guys videos, so keep up the good work.

For the NOS exploding thing, while your are correct the NOS itself wouldn’t explode like that but the cylinder itself would bleve when it’s heated up since it is pressurized.

To everyone, the secret to watching these movies is try to enjoy how ridiculous they are. They know they are bullshiting you. This how I started watching horror movies. I back the villian. He is in the room on your left. She is under the stairs. Try to turn the sbsurdity of it into entertainment. If you don't believe it , your right. Try to laugh at it. The Fiero with the rocket? Don't take it seriously. It is there for you to go What the F---? They want you to be able to watch a movie that you have to leave your I.Q. at the door and try to not believe what you see. Like in the 20s and thirties with the cliffhanger shows. One of the biggest things was that everyone wearing hats that would never fall off including during a Tornado. I even joke about it when I watch one with my dad. I bet you can't knock a hat off of someones head. Driving into outer space? Tell me what I did wrong so I can make a bigger mess of it next time. Next time we are going to use time travel to win a race, and no we you won't believe that either. Dom is going to die at the end of the movie but we are going to go back in time to stop the race which will happen anyway. But Dom will live this time. We will clog the other guys injectors, he will lose by four seconds.

German engineer (who was teaching physics at a university) here: The wheelie calculation is totally incomplete. You calculate the necessary acceleration to put a car on the rear achsle, the formula for this doesn't look too bad. But jumping from "we neeg 2.6g" to "with a bit more math and some more equations resulting xy lb-ft of torque" is weak. You are not even saing which measures you use in your equations. What is the transmission like, what is the wheel diameter like in you assumptions? Also friction during a burnout is way lower but not zero.

You're aware F&F was scripted for 13 year olds, right? The only one I watched was FF8 and only the first 20 minutes or so, because it was just ridiculous and a stupid pissing contest between Rock and Diesel. There was no point watching the rest including the first 7 films.

Most carbs like that holly regulate fuel pressure off of boost pressure from a line off of the hat on top of the carb. So It increases the fuel pressure in the carb proptional to boost so the trick should work.

The point on the turbo Charger and Cars is Maybe right, But there is a way where you put the Boost on the fuel pressure, then you Need a Valve which hold the fuel pressure 0.3bar over the Boost pressure. Then you have a safer way to have enough fuel for things like that. Just saying

you see, the fast and furious saga is a superhero movie series with a 4-5 movie build up to the actual super hero shenanigans. so physics and science do not apply :P . on a serious note, there are cars with 2 reverse gears on the road today, and there exist engine/transmission combos with 3+ reverse gears, so maybe buster could actually go fast in reverse. MAAYBE brian being former FBI with access to a kick ass garage, souped up the car with a kick ass 3 speed reverse mode transmission.

I have question. Is colored continues fire from the exhaust possible? Like spraying unburned fuel and adding fresh oxidiser (maybe even NOS) and lighting it up may give a continuous fire. And adding some chemical in that mix like boric acid (for green) color the fire?

Finn Swann Pred 28 dnevi
The part where the wastegate is clamped/vacuum is removed would actually work as just because there is a higher air to fuel ratio the extra air would still create a power boost but will be running less lean and now canisters can definitely explode u say they can’t because they are not flammable yet u then go on to say how there is an open flame to ignite it

Everybody loves to misinterpret the exploding nos scene without thinking logically about HOW it could cause a fiery explosion. The nos tank is sitting generally overtop the gas tank. When it explodes, the gas tank gets ruptured. This rupturing will cause sparks, not to mention the car is already on fire. The resulting explosion of the gasoline filled fuel tank is where the actual fiery explosion comes from. That's what we see happening in the movie. Myth is 100% plausible.

Wind of change Pred mesecem
Without watching the video itself I can tell you the depiction of NO2 in FF is completely false lol. Nitrogen can blow your engine yes, but for different reasons and when it does blow its just a piston or rod through a block at worst, not a huge fiery ball lol. Its not explosive and the complete opposite of flamable, its literally a liquid that freezes once it reacts with open air, you could light a tank on fire or shoot it and all it would do is release the pressurised gas, no fiery explosion.

SupraMarc Pred mesecem
Technically, at least 2 points are wrong. Firstly, with enough lb/ft of torque, a car could smoke its tires whilst performing a ‘wheelie’, for a very layman example; a car produces 2000 lb/ft torque and its drag radial tires puts up to 1000 lb/ft of torque to the ground which in turn causes the car to exceed its mass/power ratio and lift the front end, yet the additional 1000 lb/ft torque spins above the rating and produces the aforementioned tire smoke. Secondly, although NO2 is not a flammable gas, it is a compressed gas when bottled and utilised for use in cars, so although the gas itself will not add to the flames, once the container is ruptured, it would explode and send debris flying.

Your wrong about blow through carbs jetting. The fuel is increased by a boost referenced regulator.....although pulling the wastegate line would produce more boost than the fuel pump could handle.
Kishislife Pred mesecem
Jk for the first one couldn't it happen with slight lag. As in after it starts up wait transfer plus power lag would push it up then give it the boost to burnout for atleast a split second (sorry if that makes no sense)

Jason Lacy
Jason Lacy Pred mesecem
missed two things on turbo wastegate lies. Other reason to regulate boost so you don't throw too much pressure and blow the head gasket. Second reason, fuel supply pressure must exceed turbo pressure, excess turbo would not only need more fuel but without increased fuel pressure will resist fuel entering and cause less flow.

wyrazowfkp Pred mesecem
In theory you can do a light burnout -- and then do a whellie --- especially on the normal asphalt ..... It would require almost perfect conditions --- as the tires are cold they have limited traction, and while hot they have significantly more traction.... Since the tire getting hot gains traction -- it is somewhat possible to do that not starting with high rpms (at first light burnout while next going for a wheelie) but the smoke will end quickly as the car would go --- exactly like in the movie. In the movie it was fake probably as they take a lot of shots of the same scene -- still it is possible :)

Question about the NOS part. If the car is already on fire like shown in the clip couldn’t it heat up the bottle of nos causing it to become more pressurized due to the temperature change? And once the Nos bottle exploded wouldn’t it feed the flames with more oxygen? It may not cause green flames but I thought that’s why nos was illegal on the street? Because it could cause injury to first responders and firefighters in the case of an accident

Donut Media, if that wastegate trick isnt possible then could you explain how Nissan R90ck driven by Blundell was able to reach completely new top speeds on the mulsanne straight back in the day despite having broken turbo? they say its wastegate was stuck closed. The engine probably broke afterwards but regardless it was given a big boost to power. Its obviously a racecar but would be cool to hear how did that work and why did that work and not this one? Worth a video? :D
