Hartley radios in that they're following a light Chevy, with the number plate LYD 951 - but it does only at end, for most of the chase, and in subsequent scenes, its plates read MBE 151! There's similar Continuity errors with Rogers' car, the plates of which oscillate between LBH 217 and LZO 053.
Furthermore, when Gambit's speeding into town in pursuit of Sminsky's Chevy (38:18), he forces one of the blue Chevys - LBH 217 - to swerve because he's absent-mindedly driving on the English side of the road - we'd just seen the other, LZO 053, dumped next to the river.
It's ironic that George Chuvalo should be knocked off his feet by Nada when he survived 93 heavyweight bouts without ever being knocked off his feet - possibly the only heavyweight boxer to never be knocked off his feet.
The sound effect used for all "Gladiators'" bare-handed assaults is that used in the various 'Cybernauts' stories.
