- 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.

Subaru Impreza S206 24H Nur Winner
Two years in a row, Subaru Impreza wins the 24H Nurburgring race!
On the day this video was shot, unfortunately all the official drivers of
this car were busy at other race events. So what they did was take out the
team director and have him drive.
A small bumpy parking lot in Daiba, Tokyo was the course. The amazing
thing was that, this car was quite sticky to the ground all the time, and
even performed to drift a little. Perhaps this is what the Nur race track
is like. Although it requires an expert to drive like this, the WRX has a
really good handling - especially this S206.

Roadfly.com - 2011 Lexus IS-F Road Test & Review
The 2011 Lexus IS-F may not look so different than IS-Fs of the past four
years, but thorough re-tuning of its suspension has finally transformed it
into a complete sports sedan.
This isn't your mother's Lexus! The IS-F scorches the tarmac with 416 hp
from its 5.0L Yamaha-tuned V8. The redline is 6800rpm, but you can tell
the motor wants to pull to 8k and beyond.
It produces 371 lb.-ft. of torque at 5200 rpm, and at around 4000 rpm you
can hear a noticeable cam phase, like that of a Honda VTEC motor or any of
Yamaha's other high-performance street-car motors found in Ford and Toyota
products over the years.
That somewhat peaky powerband gives the car a very racy feeling, and the
8-speed automatic does a commendable job of getting the power down. The
IS-F rockets to 60mph in 4.2 seconds, yet the 8 speeds allow it to achieve
decent fuel economy (16/23) and dodge the gas guzzler tax.
The addition of a Torsen limited-slip differential, as well as the
suspension upgrades, combined to knock off around 8 seconds from the car's
lap time at VIR, putting it nearly equal with the vaunted BMW M3. It also
equals or bests our tester M3's equipment levels while costing nearly $7000
Well done, Lexus.

2011 Lexus ISF 6 Piston Brakes Painted F Blue, Custom Logo - Plus bonus Smoke!
in anticipation of my new wheels that are being custom made for this car, i
wanted to change the color of the brake calipers. I love the color and I
figured since they didnt have a blue ISF on the lot when i got this one,
that this would fill the "void" just fine for me :D The new wheels, as
stated in the video will be 20" Black on black 3 piece wheels with an
offset. They should be ready next week.
In the meantime, while i wait for my wheels to be finished, i called up Roy
Devore, the man responsible for painting my Tahoe and Chickens Hoopty Caddy
(search candy blue Escalade in my vids). He didnt even hesitate and came
right over. After looking at them closely, it was determined that we could
paint them completely without taking them off. I honestly didnt want to
mess with pulling them off the car anyway since it would be a pain in the
ass. As you can see, it turned out great! Having my own lift really
helped and Roy was able to hit the brakes inside and out with no problem.
We had some custom logo's made for them and they turned out perfect.
Special thanks to Roy for doing a spectacular job, as usual!
