* Right so one of the major themes of the franchise is that family is everything and as shown the crew is super close being able to tell when something is wrong or off about someone in the crew pretty quickly, why is it in fast 8 nobodys first thought at all about [[spoiler: Dom going rogue]] is that [[spoiler:cipher is holding something over him?]] tbh if my best friend did something like this, it would be instantly my first point of conclusion until proven otherwise. its a total 180 in the case that nobody in the crew expected so that should of been the first port of call in their minds.

* How is Tej able to drive in his later appearances when he's said to have a permanent leg injury preventing him from doing so.

** This is actually really simple. It demonstrates to the enemy that they have a much bigger problem, and poses a huge challenge. A person who wants to steal your money is a rational actor whose motives you understand and whose actions you feel like you can predict. A person who just wants to *burn* your money is *crazy*, and you have little idea what they might be willing to do. If you want to steal my money and escape alive with the money intact, there are a lot of things I can do to stop you. If you want to *destroy* my money, and worse if you donít care if you survive, there may be almost nothing I can do to prevent it. And once Reyes realizes they can so easily destroy his money, it is a short leap to realizing they can probably also destroy *him*. Thatís what Dom was going for.

** Because that way the movie has a cool action sequence.

* In ''Fast Five'', Tej tells Rome how he would like to start a garage with his $11 million share of the take, because he always wanted a place where people could come get their cars fixed up without getting ripped off. However, in ''2 Fast 2 Furious'', Tej already had a garage. It was even called "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Tej's Garage]]." That's how Brian and Rome were able to get their police-issued cars checked out and their trophy Mustangs modified. Why would Tej decide he needed a new garage, even before Mia and Brian announced they had all landed on the Most Wanted list?

** Their ''trophy Mustangs'' were not Mustangs. The only Mustang in the movie was run over by a semi. The cars they won were a Camaro and Challenger respectively. Both were ''pony cars'' however, which was a term coined when the Mustang was created.

** It's pretty obvious that Mr. Nobody took a liking to Torreto and wanted him to succeed. I mean, the guy outright says that Deckard wasn't of interest to him, and yet he goes personally to help Dom get him. Clearly, he was aware that without Ramsay they weren't going to make it.

** They've shown little to no concern for collateral damage in the past. They started out hijacking trucks in the most dangerous way possible and at a minimum could easily have gotten the drivers of those trucks killed. Of course ''FastFive'' brought this to a whole other level.
* What was Dom's problem with Reyes' men at the beginning of ''FastFive''? They were hired to steal a bunch of impounded cars off a train. Reyes was really only interested in one of them, so the rest of the theft was to cover for that. Why would Dom care and subsequently risk angering their employer for something that really had nothing to do with him? Was he just that pissed because he was left out when Brian "made a call".

* In Fast 8, the EMP shuts down the entire base. So whilst you can forgive the minor thing of the barrios somehow magically being lowered (basic mechanics would have them lock in place once raised), how the heck was the submarine hacked? The entire point of the EMP is that it shuts down all electronics completely, hacking in from the outside shouldn't do a damn thing.
** Movies sometimes show EMPs to be temporary, even though that's not how they work IRL. Or maybe the sub was shielded from the EMP or the EMP didn't have the range to disable the sub.

* In Fast 8, how are there so many self driving cars in New York City? Even if you take into account that they aren't all self driving, but those cars that can park themselves (which on a side note, shouldn't be capable of getting over 10 mph), that is still way too many to be in one place. There is a period where about six all fall out of the same parking lot.
