This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Raoul suggests they get some Priest's robes for the trip. Dr. Gonzo doesn't think it's a good idea. It isn't mentioned.
   After the scene where Duke gets twisted on the adrenochrome they go to the opening of the drug conference. The opening of the drug conference occurs right after they drop off Lucy, and before they return to the suite and get the message from her and Duke takes the drug.
   When Raoul tells Dr. Gonzo they are going to the Mint 400 and it is a motorcycle race they discuss getting a motorcycle for the job. Raoul suggests a Vincent Black Shadow. They talk about getting a motorcycle, but fail to mention the Vincent Black Shadow.
   After Duke leaves Dr. Gonzo in the room he passes the man from Life Magazine dictating his story over a pay phone. Then he goes and finds the red shark where he parked it. He takes it to the garage and checks it in and tells them to give it a wax, and bill the room. He just returns to the room.
   Raoul describes a time when he lived next to a Dr. who experimented with LSD. He went to visit him and tried to get him to help him get high. This is left out completely.
