To offset the repetitive nature of the races, the script delves into the more cerebral, theoretical side of racing -- that is, if you were interested in such things. To give him credit, Chou plays the unflappable racer convincingly, and the film's best moments involve Takumi nonchalantly racing downhill, treating the races as another night delivering tofu as fast as he can, or risk another beating from good 'ol dad, who was himself a former racing king. All shot under moonlight, this short sequence captures the sublime and surreal beauty of pure auto power.

Takumi was able to defeat Nakazato again, showing that he is no fluke. Things don't get any simpler for Lizzie when her family gets wind of her newfound fame, and catch the next flight to Italy. In a mountain road encounter, they ran into Team Emperor's Mitsubishi Evo, and normally the old junker don't stand a chance, but when controlled by Takumi they were able to defeat the Evo.
