  • Fast and the Furious (Arby please read)

    Arby, if your eclipse is a manual, how many gears is it?

    I just watched the Fast and the Furious again (for the 6th time) and in one of the starting sceens where Bryan is testing out his car (and he maxes out at 140mp/h) the car has 7 gears.

    Check out this for more Fast and the Furious stuffups. more...

      i think it shows him shifting into 2nd twice. (could be 3rd, trying to remember off the top of my head) anyway, you can see his hand do the same shift movement twice.

      it ****ed me off too, when i saw it the first time. i actually screamed.... "hey thats 7 gears!!!"

        My eclipse is a five speed.

        Maybe he shifted into second twice, and the 7th one was reverse?

          In a Popular Mechanics about a year ago, there was a question from a guy who's wife shifted their BMW into 1nd out of 5th (which as I understand is rather easy to do in BMW's due to their good trannys), anyways she blew the transmission up on the highway. Could you imagine being near her when that happened?

            Now 5th to 1st that would make it go the engine go boom quickly. Must of been and older BMW cause mine won't let me shift into 1st unless I'm stopped or going around 1mph. (ie really really slow)

              The "Semi-Quick and Mildly Enraged" is so full of mistakes it isn't even worth talking about. That movie just sucks. Slightly entertaining, but very annoying and totally inaccurate....

                      more crap
                      double clutching is from the days before syncromesh and you had to force gear changes.
                      If you come out talking sh1t don't try to turn around and wipe you azz.

                        Yeah double clutching is for big rigs... only place it fits into the movie is when they are trying to "jack the truck."

                            hahaha... you should hear all the jack-asses that wanted to know how to double clutch on the cavalier webboard that i visit every now and then. right after the movie came out, that was posted about 5 times a day. i wish i could reach out and slap some people through my computer. sigh, maybe some day.

                              FWIW, I double clutch when downshifting all the time. Saves wear on the syncros...Of course, you don't need to do it on any modern consumer transmission.
