Brembo makes Lexus, Raybestos and AIMCO rotors for the IS-F. Brembo lists them on their engineering drawing. They might have different finishes on them, but the rotors are manufactured by Brembo.

Keep believing that. It's a lie.

ST is constantly learning. As soon as you hit closed loop, it is active. ST impacts LT, and when you got WOT, LT is used to correct the factory maps because ST isn't active at any throttle position...
