Took the lexus for a 20 mile drive on the back roads on thursday

the factory suspension settings need to be adjusted... best for tire wear my ace... make the car handle like a 3500# car...

massive body roll
fix = thicker swaybar, and or replace sway bushings

understeer when braking and oversteer when accelerating
slight adjustment to camber, toe, and bump steer (i want less toe when breaking or hitting a bump)


the pads and tires amazingly (toyo eclipse) got much grippier and more aggressive when hot... kind of impressed there pretty decent for all seasons

the more i used them the more i could feel the road through the wheel... 9pm at night road temp 85*f where i stopped at the end of road

tire temp 104*f front 110*f rear tires

the motor needs some attention i/e/h (if i can find a header for the 400)
