Are you referring to this pic? I can't really tell which mechanism in the pic is RWS. Would you point it out? Thanks.

Very exciting news indeed!The larger the displacement the harder to rev higher and faster. Hope they can surprise us though.

^Thanks for the very relevant post. Sounds to me that the chief engineer purposely avoided DRS because he wants the car to drift better, instead of gripping better and posting faster lap times. So it...

Don't think TVD works by using brakes. TV"D" works by using a differential.

My question exactly.:D

The pinnacle F car should include every performance trick they have in their arsenal, so the omission is particularly curious and puzzling.

The same can be said about TVD--both DRS and TVD are designed to enhance grip through a corner, so if you're into power sliding then you shouldn't want any of these technologies in the first...

What's preventing Lexus from combining torque vectoring and rear wheel steering?

I was just thinking out loud after watching some recent RC-F videos yesterday--wouldn't it be killer if Lexus could implement both torque vectoring and rear wheel steering in one car? Surely the two...

Right, but Toyota's ACC hadn't been able to slow down to a stop until very recently, so one couldn't really have trusted the system enough to pull off the same stunt.

Then the GS must stretch itself if it wants to stay competitive IMHO. Practicality means a lot to most people shopping for a midsize sedan.
