My first lap around the road course at LV Speedway in IS F. Neutral handling, incredible power and Brembo brakes. 8-speed direct shift auto transmission changes gears in .1sec. Even though I love manual gearbox there is no argument that for shaving the last fraction of a second from your lap time this is the way to go. Shifts are direct, immediate and smooth, no waiting. Downshifts are just as quick with the "blip" perfectly mimmicking well executed heel-and-toe. SMG and dual-clutch trans don't compare. Plus, this is a Lexus, street ride is smooth and quiet.
1950 Skoda 1102 also known as Tudor or 1101
A Czechoslovakian survivor from Canada, now in the US. Difficult to find even in its native land. After some tweaking of the carb and brakes little Skoda is moving under its own power. Good basis for restoration.
Lexus ISF Crash
Two of my friends were stopped at an intersection waiting to turn left when my other friend rams the ISF which hits the GT and pushes them about 60 feet forward at 50 miles an hour. I got out and took the video. The Audi in the first blurry clip is where the ISF and GT should've been. Sorry for the quality and length of the first clip, was in a bit of shock.

11-8-11 2013 Lexus GS F SPORT Acceleration
This is vide of the all-new 2013 Lexus GS 350 F SPORT being driven southbound on PCH in Dana Point, CA. Listen to the roar of the 2GR-FSE D4-S 3.5L V6. This GS F Sport was switched into Sport+ mode. Listen to the more pronounced intake sounds (just like IS F) and watch the throttle blips upon downshifts. Don't forget to check out the heads up display which now shows more than just your speed and radio channels. It finally shows a tach.
Finally a real engaging Lexus GS!
