Just read the post about engine monitoring.
And reminded me of the first big race scene in TFATF, where the chap was looking at info etc on a laptop.
What exactly was he doing, and what was displayed etc. Told him like when to change gears :confused:

It also told him that his manifold was about to give up.

As far as I remember he was supposed to be setting up a fuel + nitrous map for the strip.

But some parts of the film are just a bit unreal! lol

Yeah, bear in mind the sheer forces involved in driving along the road made all the screws pop out of the floor and the plate to fall off!
Yeah right.
And wasn't that the longest 1/4 mile ever? Complete with about 8 gear changes...

no, he changed the managements settings with his laptop. Just like you'd do with a throttle body kit, and an MBE.

The floor thing was pathetic. Also dom sat in that car later in the passenger seat when chased by the cops, and I didn't notice him running! lol

That looked a bit odd. And 160mph on a 1/4mile??

yeh it was a progressive NOS controller. remember he was lagging behind and then turned it up to "stage 3" at which point a 1x2 foot piece of alloy chequer plate burst off the floor pan (like you do) And then a few inlet manifold bolts pinged off.

Nice and realistic then.

The laptop could have been connected to the diagnostics connector?
