The Fast and The Furious

In the first movie, how do they get the flames out of the tailpipes? I have heard some generalized things, but I want a more in-depth look at how it is done.

I believe it was a fuel injector and a triggerable spark plug...

Re: The Fast and The Furious

I'm guessing they put flamethrower kits on the cars, a mod that was pretty popular at the time of the movie. I'm not 100% sure how they work as I think they're kind of lame but I think hooks into your muffler and is activated by a switch in the interior.
