    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Unlike other episodes, this does not have the episode title card immediately after the intro. The episode title is displayed only after the Mammoth Car enters the racetrack.

      • It is clear that when the driver claims the Mammoth Car can go over 500 mph (800 km/h) on any type of road he is exaggerating because Speed catches up to the car twice and if Speed cannot match the speed of the GRX at 400 km/h (250 mph) then there is no way he could hope to catch up to something that really could go at twice that speed.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Cruncher Block: Hahaha! I always get hungry when I'm up to skullduggery. Give me a sandwich!

      • Sparky: Did you find out how many cylinders the engine has, and if it's equipped with a supercharger?
        Inspector Detector: The car's equipped with everything anybody can imagine!

      • Mammoth Car driver: The main engine has 7500 horsepower. Each mammoth wheel also contains an engine of 1500 horsepower. Altogether, the Mammoth Car is driven by 30,000 horsepower.
