When Thorny is getting ready to shoot Mac to test the bulletproof cup, he draws his gun and touches the top of it. The gun makes a noise as if he was pulling the slide back and a round was being chambered, but he never pulls the slide.

When Thorny is about to fire at the bulletproof cup, you can hear the "click" of a safety being disarmed. He is carrying a Glock, which has no manual safety, and would not make that "click."

When Farva tells Rabbit about the 1975 Country Music Awards, he says that Charlie Rich set the award on fire when John Denver was announced as the winner. Charlie Rich set fire to the winner's certificate, the form inside the envelope with the winner's name, not the actual award.

The movie is set in Vermont, but many items are specific to New York state, where it was filmed, like the lottery ticket machines in the bar after the Miata chase. The Seal in the middle of the troopers' badges are the State Seal of New York, not Vermont.

Factual errors 

When Rabbit takes the stolen Porsche for a joyride, Farva is filling up his car at a gas station. He sees that he'd get a free hot dog with a 10-gallon fill-up, but the pump cuts off at a little over 9. He then pumps some gas into the trash can. Those types of pumps don't allow gas to be pumped out if the black safety cover isn't pushed back. It would be impossible to pump gas into the trash can.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When the stoners are telling the guys where to put the keg of St. Anky beer, you can see "Anheuser-Busch" on the rim of the keg. Beer kegs are re-used time and again and not always by the same company. Thus the name on the rim needn't match up to the contents. Smaller breweries are especially likely to use old kegs from another, larger brewery as it's a lot more cost-effective.

Spoilers

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Factual errors 

When the local police meet with the drug smugglers, two officers exit the back seat of the police car without assistance, which would be impossible as squad cars have the interior rear door handles removed. Ursula refers to this fact earlier in the film when she and Foster are in the back seat of his car.
