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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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)

    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.

    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

    on the point of the first one, idk about you but when I've done burnouts in my car still gets pushed forward and if I let off the brakes entirely I will usually start moving forward 20 feet then the wheels firmly grip the ground and the burnout ends. Suffice it to say, my car doesn't have half the amount of torque it would need to pop a wheelie but if he needs 700 torque and his car has a thousand or more I think the wheelie burnout mix could be possible
