Fun stuff error
25 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

In the "Fun Stuff" section writes:

"Factual errors: When Berti drives a race against a VW Golf, both drivers pull the handbrake and press the pedal to burn some rubber. This is not possible, because the Opel Manta is a rear wheel driven model, and the handbrake also brakes the rear wheels."

This "so called" error is not an error actually. I own one of these cars and i modified the handbrake system so that it controls the front brakes. Works perfect for burnout. And I did the modification BEFORE I saw the film. So the German might have done the same thing in 1991.

And if anyone knows where i can find a genuine DVD with English subtitles please let me know.
