Default Lexus IS F on track

Hi guys

On 12/12/09, I took my F to the legendary Sepang F1 circuit in Malaysia.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wi1EPUYZ5cA

This is it it was my first lap, so i pitted early to get a diagnostics of my suspension setup etc

I posted a times of 2:30, 2:22, 2:15 and finally a flying 1:59 in the end.

needless to say, my PS2s were dead by the end of it.

Malaysia's first ISF.

Around 3:13 it looks like you guys split off .. where'd you go?

OutCaster, that was just my second lap on track and at that point of time, the Car was good but i needed to set up my suspension,
I have Tein SCs with EDFC (i can set 16 levels of firmness, 0 being the hardest 16 being the softest) and i needed better feedback on the firmness. I went out with 0/0 front and rear settings and on sports mode i found that it was far from ideal.

I changed the setting after to 2f, 4 rear setup and it was much better. Also had to warm brakes by then
