Default LFA ride-along: Acceleration runs, revs, fly-bys and photos

You can hear the owner complaining about the tires and that they don't handle very well just like many other people before him.

Too bad Lexus did not give the car proper sticky tires.

everytime i see this car perform i become glued to my Macbook screen. nice vid,,, but they should have used a mounted cam. i was getting sea sick b/c the guy with the cam was very unsteady,,, i forgive him b/c he was after all in a screaming LFA. keep them coming XRS. my fave hands down was the Luna,,, - the speeding ticket.

Exactly, the tires are fine, unless you're racing.

The LFA handles like a true sports car. If you want something that practically drives itself buy an AWD lamborghini and miss out on the fun of truely driving the vehicle. Personally, I enjoy the aggressive rear wheel drive, the LFA is hands down the most exhilerating vehicle I have driven; over the SLR McLaren/458 Italia/Gallardo/Murcialago/GTR/etc.
