Woah there Danny

You are one crazy Lexus owner.........you're more of a small private Lexus dealership than an owner.

I'm sure you've bought more IS-Fs than some country dealers have sold.

What happened to the IS250 you bought to build the race car from???? That's what you were doing before wasn't it?

Keep up the good work Dan.

Very impressive. I can't wait to see it all come together. So great to see someone doing this privately with an IS F.

more update

So!! another shipment from my good friend Mike @ Figs
2piece rotors! (F+R)
Kevlar bonnet mould ready (lining it up to see the best place to put bonnet vents)
bonnet weights 3kg
and front diffuser basic set up
lining it up to measure to side and wheel difference
all parts are made in Kevlar
Test fitting another set of wheels to see wheel and guard clearance
end product wont come as far as pictured as the diffuser will be cut where the wheels will be seated
Basic idea is to have a flat under tray in the engine bay
seats and interior all cleared cleaned up
my fav shot for now
Road F and Track F

Epic Danny mate, pure car porn right there!

Is there a reason you went with the Racing Brake rotors and not the Novel ones?

Very interested to see how this beast goes on the track mate! Interested in the ECU tune as well!
