Well the first Drag in the movie FnF was a 1 mile drag. All four laner (illegal) drags are generally 1 Mile Drag Races, thats the only way u get the thrills of Drafting and stuff (much more skills required in 1 mile drag than in the ¼ Mile one.. though two mins was a bit too long i suppose, even if we give them the benefit of slow mo and all.. )

Yeah, great all round entertainment.. but again I fancied the 2F2F's last chase (against cop cars and choppers in the Lancer and the Eclipse / then in the Camaro and Challenger *was it?* than the FnF drags)

Ronin for me.. definately! amazing car chases best are the first with Audis and Citroen XMs and that amazin mid 80s merc! and then that last chase opposite to the direction of the traffic!!

Ya then that Shelby GT500 Eleanor chase..where my also favorite (Ford Crown Victoria`s) get screwed up!

And not a chase, but that GMC Bus jump in Speed!

Bullitt was good, the Transporter, cop chase in 007's Diamonds are Forever, I also liked the scene in 2F2F when Paul Walker does a 180 degree on the expressway and shows the middle finger to Tyrese in the 1st half of the movie.

Has anyone seen Initial - D a Jap movie ? supposedly the best drifting movie.
loved the Toyota AE-86 Corolla, r32 skyline , Nissan Sylvia & EVO VI's.

it was originally a TV animation series which was later made into a Flick.

managed to get hold of the Spanish version cant find any English versions on the net.

Cool

yes, italian job both new and old, gone in 60 seconds(for the exotic elaenor)
and bond movies.

BUT, the mother of all chases is from the film " THE FRENCH CONNECTION "
The film is often cited as containing one of the greatest car-chase sequences in movie history.

one can read about the car chase in that movie from this link:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Fre...nnection_(film)

and from this link

http://ask.yahoo.com/20050316.html

also the Bullit, (mustang here again) infact ford came out with a mustang with a tag bullit.... impact of the movie on cars production !!!

Watched Billa 07. Nice car chase done using drift car Nissan 240 set in Malaysia. (done by Malaysian stunt crew apparently). The sequence is pretty short though.
