Audio/visual unsynchronised 

The engine sound of the Duck's truck changes repeatedly - i.e. at one point it's a Detroit Diesel, then Cummins, then Cat, and at one point a Chevy smallblock.

Continuity 

Throughout the film, Rubber Duck's truck has a grill guard. In the scene after his and Pig Pen's trucks have crashed through the jail, the grill guard is missing when the truck pulls out. Yet it's back on there for the rest of the movie.

Crew or equipment visible 

When Sheriff Lyle's squad car gets sandwiched by two trucks, the camera used inside the car is mounted in the rear, but its size was such that it couldn't be positioned out of shot of the second camera mounted on a flatbed trailer in front of the action.

In the start of the movie when the Jaguar passes by The Duck, we can clearly see the reflection of the camera man, on the side of the truck.

Errors in geography 

At 50:22 (as per YouTube) the caption says "New Mexico" and "I-40". However, the shot is from I-25 just west of Isleta Village. That particular profile of Sandia Crest is only visible from this vantage point, and other features in the picture also give it away: the small escarpment to the right of the truck, and the small mountain in the far background on the left (Google maps, street view can be used to verify).
