    According to DVDfile, the specs mentioned for 2 Fast 2 Furious did not include a DTS track, only a DD 5.1 track.

    Unless it's still early and they just didn't mention it, I would have thought for sure we would be getting a DTS track since the first one got it. And this is Universal too. So I'm scratching my head.[​IMG]

    When DVD File reported the specs for the Fast and Furious: Tricked Out Edition, they only mentioned DD 5.1, no DTS.

    I'm sure 2 Fast 2 Furious will have DTS.

    These specs really piss me off. Not only did I mess up by buying the "trick you over" edition instead of the collectors ( with expired movie tickets to sweeten the deal). Now I find out that the only two extras worth watching on the disk are going to be included on the 2f2f disk. The prelude to 2f2f and the how to trick out an import.[​IMG]

    At least give the people who buy the 2 pack DTS since they are getting the same extras on both discs. What a deal.[​IMG]

    Maybe they'll save the DTS track for the "2Fast 2Furious: Off Da Hizzy Fo Shizzy" version.

    Gregory that was really funny!! [​IMG]

    Thanks for making me laugh!!

    More than likely they will have dts. But if they don't, I don't think that would make sense. This would be in the same league if Fox doesn't release "X-Men 2" with dts. Why have it on one and not the other?

    Here's hoping all our thoughts are right on.

    Surely with all the releases a movie gets now days on DVD,
    that we'll see a DTS track on one of them. [​IMG]

    Just turn the volume up a little [​IMG] It's not the end of the world... it could have been worse...

    What if they only released it in Dolby Digital 2.0 [​IMG]

    The final specs:

    - 2.35:1 Anamorphic Widescreen
    - English, French, and Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound
    - Feature Commentary with Director John Singleton
    - Deleted Scenes
    - Outtakes
    - Animated Anecdotes
    - Inside 2 Fast 2 Furious featurette
    - Tricking Out a Hot Import Car featurette
    - Supercharged Stunts featurette
    - Making Music with Ludacris featurette
    - Brian's Car Exclusives: Spotlight on Paul Walker featurette
    - Brian's Car Exclusives: The Ride featurette
    - Brian's Car Exclusives: Driving School featurette
    - Roman's Car Exclusives: Spotlight on Tyrese featurette

    - Turbo-Charged Prelude For 2 Fast 2 Furious
    - The Fast and the Furious Video Game Trailer

    - DVD-ROM Features

    IMO, I'd take away the French and Spanish 5.1 tracks and put in a DTS 5.1 track.

    I wonder if the quality of the video will be compromised due to having 3 DD 5.1 tracks, and all of those special features?

    Of course, this release isn't going to be something catered to video and audiophiles, it's going to be catered to Joe-Six-Pack.
