I don't know if it is someone from here, or just a stranger who read it in this topic. But the Buzzard to TCTAP reference and the aviator skull to MM2 and 3 are just up on IMDb. Except it says that the Gyro captain was in MM2 and 3. As if it is the same character.
"UNDERSTEER" is when you hit the fence with the front of the car.
"OVERSTEER" is when you hit the fence with the rear of the car.
"HORSEPOWER" is how fast you hit the fence.
"TORQUE" is how far you take the fence with you.

I can't remember it being mentioned already, but the Doof Warrior is suspended by bungee ropes. Just like in BT.

Max awakening in a sudden way. Nod to Thunderdome.

Furiosa driving the War Rig from left to right to left to hit the vehicles. Nod to MM2.

The women all seemed similar to past MM heroines and characters. people have said it has a feminist agenda or whatever but I dont think it is actually any different than all the other 3- Combine all aspects of May Swassee (MM1), Warrior Woman (MM2), Savvanah Nix and Auntie Entity (MM3) and you would get something similar to the old women at the end of fury road. while the wife in FR who died under the tires is like Jesse and the one who wanted to go back and try to get forgiveness reminded me of the old lady in Road Warrior who wanted to believe Humungus would let them live.l

Dunno if it was mentioned before....

Furiosa said the truck was 1000?(?) HP of nitro boosted war machine

Nitromethane was what the original interceptor was supposed to run on (mentioned in the garage scene).
Also in MM1 if you pause the scene at Fat Nancy when they pan past the XP? Falcon Wagon you see a sign in the window of the car advertising it for sale.

I just remembered this; there is a scene in the film (I cant remember who did it to who) where a character headbutts someone and there is definitely a very fast flash of light just like when Wez headbutted the guy (is he called the quiet man?) in the compound in Mad Max 2. I'm sure its yet another Millerism.

I thought it was 2000 hp.

In Mad Max 2 the Gyro Captain actually ended up a hero, saving Max TWICE and getting the girl!
In Mad Max 4 Nux actually ended up a hero, saving Max TWICE and getting the girl!
