I didn't say never, and I rebuilt my V-160 myself after I broke it, so fixing a gearbox isn't a big deal to me. Blowing one up to the point of uneconomical repair is a big deal. So far, we've only...

This does not speak to track prep at all. Sac Raceway isn't always on top of this. I've been there a time or two.

I don't expect Lexus to support my HPDE habit, so I don't mince words about using the car at the track. But, just like Biggu, I do everything myself (except body work because I just don't have the...

I doubt the car will do 45 minute sessions well. Oil temps will be pretty high if OAT is anything like summer. I'd be very concerned if OAT is 25C or higher. The rest of the car will be fine. If...

I am running the same size PSS's with '14 wheels. Works great. I wouldn't do the spacers but that's a long discussion about suspension geometry. The only downside is they like to push in the front...
