- The Art of Engine Warm Up -
Warming up the engine is not something any team crew could do. Because it's
not only about warming up, but it's also a procedure to check the condition
of the engine before the car goes on to the race track.
Usually, the warm up process is performed by a specific mechanic through
out the season. This mechanic is likely to be an engine mechanic who knows
everything about the engine, and he has his own way of testing it using his
own eyes, ears, and even nose.
Open the throttle in various speed (quick/slow), try that at different rev
levels, maintain that rev point, and listen what each of them sound like.
He will also check around the engine room to observe any leak of oil, and
sometimes even check the smell to see if the gas is burned properly.
Through out this process, the mechanic will compare the data and his
"sense" with his experience from the past to diagnose the condition. That
is why, not any team crew could perform this task.
This video is only a minute long, but the actual warm up takes 5 to 10
minutes depending on the climate (in cold weather they need more time).
They would usually do this half an hour before the car gets on the track,
because if it's earlier than this the engine will become cold, and if it's
later, they won't have time to deal with any problems found.

Honda NSX Concept-GT
What if you are the only one who has the wrong tool to fight with, while
everyone else has something right? This is exactly the situation Honda is
about to face in the 2014 Super GT series.
Chassis of DTM is purely designed for FR racing cars - a chassis destined
to work when an engine is mounted on the front. But Honda will put engine
on the rear to make it MR, and even add a racing hybrid system to it. Why
do this? Most people think that Honda just wants to race with a vehicle of
features that their new NSX will have. Well, that's not everything.
The extreme kind of race cars, like the ones in Super GT or DTM, are almost
never built over their production model cars. An engineer of Nissan in
Super GT series says that the only real common part between GT500 GT-R and
the production R35 is the "door knob". All other parts of the vehicle are
mere imitation of the production model just to keep the resemblance. Race
cars in these categories are created with completely different materials,
developed by a different team, and built in a different factory. There
almost nothing in common between the two cars.
With that in mind, we are close to understanding what is Honda trying to do
with this NSX Concept-GT. Mount an engine on the rear of FR chassis, add a
hybrid racing system of their own, and still race trying to compete with
others with better condition. The race is not actually about the car
itself, but it is the place where manufactures and teams show their spirit
of challenge, test their own ideas and skills, to prove who is the best in
creating new things. If you are complaining about NSX Concept-GT having a
2.0L engine, or becoming smaller in size compared to HSV, you are only
seeing the surface of this race. I recommend that you go see a production
It's true that currently Honda is lacking lineup of sports cars. But it's
only about the production cars, and they have never abandoned their spirit
in racing. After 2009 when they stopped producing S2000, they came up with
HSV that does not exist anywhere in the world except on race track. They
fought equally to Toyota and Nissan and won series championship. Now with
the new NSX-GT in 2014, they will start a new story of challenge. Let's
not just see "what they make", but also see "how they think" to improve
their unique race car and fight against other manufactures. Hopefully in
the near future, they'll produce a new sports car filled with that spirit.
The Honda show is about to start!

PETRONAS TOM'S SC430
There are 6 Lexus SC430 in 2011 series of Super GT. Each of them has
technical support from Lexus (=Toyota), but this Petronas Tom's SC430 is
the only car that has full support, both technically and financially.
It is the flagship car among all 6 race car SC430, positioned to develop
and test new parts for them. If the newly developed parts show good effect,
other SC430 will have them on their car soon as well, or at least by the
next race. The role and responsibility lies heavily on the team and drivers
of this car, but this is the best team Lexus has got. On 2009 series, this
car won the championship.
To write about other car manufacturers, #23 Motul Autech GT-R is the
flagship car of Nissan, and #18 Weider HSV-010 for Honda. The best
drivers/teams are assigned for these cars.

New Lexus IS 2013 - Which? Car first drive
The new 2013 Lexus IS looks like a leftfield choice in a large car class
dominated by the German brands: Audi, BMW and Mercedes.
Unusually, the IS has no diesel engines -- only the 205bhp 2.5-litre petrol
IS 250 and 220bhp petrol/electric IS 300h hybrid.
Fuel economy for the IS 250 is just 32.8mpg, but the hybrid doubles that,
with a claimed 65.7mpg for the IS 300h SE. This entry-level model (which
has smaller wheels and thus lower emissions) also grabs the headlines with
a CO2 output of 99g/km -- low enough for free car tax.
Above SE, the trim levels rise through Luxury, F-Sport and Premier.
Standard equipment is generous, with few extra-cost options. All cars come
with eight airbags, including knee airbags for the driver and front
Prices start at £26,495 for the IS 250 or £29,495 for the IS 300h.
Can the new, third-generation IS propel Lexus into the premier league?

LOUD Straight Pipe Lexus IS-F Setting Off Car Alarms!!!
Become a fan on Facebook for the latest updates:
My friends and I just picked up another friend's car, a blue Lexus IS-F,
from San Diego. It had some major work done to it at HG Motorsports,
including an ECU tune and a full straight pipe Exhaust system. When we got it, we couldn't
believe how loud it was...so we decided to have some fun with it. As we
were heading into a mall later that evening, we wanted to see how the car
sounded like in a parking garage. The answer to that question is that it
sounded very LOUD. As you can see, many car alarms were set off in the
process, and a few people were quite annoyed by how loud the car is!
Hahaha, enjoy the video! :D

2014 BMW M235i vs Lexus IS F Drag Race: Mighty V8 vs Inline-6 Turbo
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2014 BMW M235i and the 2014 Lexus IS F don't
really compete...or do they. Perhaps only on a drag strip at one mile
above sea level in a proper drag race. In another fun and informative
TFLcar video review Nathan and Roman decide to find out which is faster in a straight up drag race. The
mighty V8 of the new fire breathing Lexus IS F or the small but fast turbo-charged 3.0L in the new BMW M235i.
