      • (Iketani manages to recover from a spin out.)
        Iketani: That punk bumped me on purpose! (Speeds off) You're gonna pay!

      • Iketani: (Racing the EG-6) That EG-6 may be faster than Takumi's 86... Who's driving it?

      • (Waiting for their dates)
        Itsuki: (Choking him) I'm so luck to have a good friend like you.
        Takumi: It's nothing, really...
        Itsuki: I'll be the best racer at Mt. Akina with a pretty girl in my arms! (A pigeon poos on his car) Not on my Levin, you darn pigeons!

    • NOTES (2)

      • The story involving the double date with Itsuki and Saori was not in the manga.

      • The Duct Tape Death Match is Shingo's specialty. Each driver has to have their hand taped to the steering wheel. Does it sound bad? Not really for an FF (Front Engine, Front Wheel Drive). But if the car's drivetrain is FR (Front engine, Rear Wheel Drive), say goodbye to the car. Takumi's drivetrain is FR so it means bad news. Shingo has no problem with this because his drivetrain in his EG-6 is FF.
