As the film's original title was "Balls Out!", this phrase was used in the movie when Sgt. Smith talks to Cru before the race. He tells him to "Go balls-out!" See more »
When Cru tries to do a back-flip he is seen landing and his legs end up bent over the end of the second row of mattresses because he knocked the third row away. But on the close-up he is seen with his legs stretched-out over the third row of mattresses as if they never moved. See more »

Like so many other kids my age (being 22 now) I saw this one and I also got my first BMX shortly after that! I have been looking everywhere for this one, but just couldn't find it until recently when I imported it from USA in a DVD-edition - however, it looks like an illegal copy since the cover had been copied (in color, though) and the picture on the disc was a sticker, the sound was really low (maybe it had something to do with the fact that it had been converted directly to DVD from VHS?), it had no extra-material and the menu looked like someone had done it on a PC and then burned it... Anyway, the film was just as Rad as I remembered it from my young days! All the classic scenes like the paper boy, motorcycle cop chase, BMX-dance and the Hell Track race were there and together with the (almost cheesy) 1980's-soundtrack they sent shivers down my spine. So if you haven't seen this one, then see it - if you HAVE seen it, then see it again! Money well spent I can assure you.
