Took the new Lexus out to Willowbank Raceway to run it over the 1/4 mile. Best of the night was 13.73 @ 100.67 mph. Hot day (28 degrees Celsius) or 82F and humid. Engine bay heat soak was something of an issue, so that is something to control in future runs.

Getting off the line is easy. No burnout, just in sport mode, ABS and VSC disabled, 1,500 on the converter and nail it. A little chirp when I did the 13.7 and best 0-100 km/h time of 5.61. Still learning how best to launch the car. I have done a 5.47 0-100 so I think there is a 13.5 if I get the right conditions.

Love the car and it is a gem. 85,000km and one owner.

Really impressed with the Dragy app. So very close to the track times, a couple were identical in other runs. Next meeting is the 27th.

Uploaded the video. For some reason the sound was not recorded. Car is stock except for a F-Sport intake from the US. Sound is awesome (it's true) 🙂

2012 Lexus IS350 F-Sport * Dragy Test * 1/4 Mile * Willowbank Raceway * 13.7

The runs were;

1: 13.907 @ 101.37 mph
2: 14.113 @ 99.2 mph (Lots of heat soak)
3: 13.730 @ 100.67 mph (After a good 45 minute cool down)
4: 13.965 @ 99.38 mph.

Nice work mate! I took my ISF there a few weeks ago and did 13.3. Was my first time and was a 40c day haha. Was a lot of fun. Looking forward to the next one.

Update on my latest adventure at the drag strip.
 
PB 13.62@101.92.
 
DA was 1849 feet, so not ideal (hot and humid) Brisbane summers suck like a Hoover.
 
Next race will be the end of May and the middle of July (Winter for us) so I may get that sub 13.5 target.
 
Car is stock except for the genuine F-Sport intake, fuel is BP98 Ultimate and using Bitron fuel and oil additives.
Since owning the car, it has improved from an initial 5.71s 0-100 km/h to 5.28s 0-100 km/h, both tested by the same VBOX Sport. In mph, that is a 4.95s 0-60 mph which I am happy with. So the combination of the air cleaner, better fuel and the Bitron additives that really work, seems to have helped.

I am going to pull the pin on a RR Racing tune as PPE headers are stupid $$$ in Australia and not worth the dollars for the improvement.
