  • Loved the show still now like I did as a kid!

    I have loved this show still as I did when

    I was a kid back in Miami and a teen

    Back where I live here in TN. We see how the Mach 5 is made from jumping off clips, lights, going

    Underwater, and sending messages. It is a very special car and that Speed really takes pride in it. But it is in danger of falling into the wrong hands of Ace & his gang. Speed & Trixie are adapt at martial arts as we can see. In order to not let Ace get the designs, Speed breaks the window. That won't make him win but that is the beginning of a legend to come.moreless

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • When Trixie contacts Speed with the helicopter, Speed responds holding a walkie talkie looking up at the helicopter. But then, when Trixie replies, Speed has both hands on the wheel, and then he turns around and talks to her directly without the walkie talkie.

    • The scene where Speed says, "No sign of them. Good. I guess they've given up." is shown twice.

    • The opening part of this episode explains the different functions of the Mach 5:

      A. Release jacks that can boost the car up.
      B. Special Grip Tires for traction plus 5000 hp to each wheel
      C. Rotary Blades in front of car to cut down obstacles
      D. Close the top with special bulletproof, crashproof, waterproof glass
      E. Special Headlights
      F. Enables underwater driving plus periscope
      G. Launch homing robot to send messages

    • This episode marks the first time the cutters are used.
