    Thumbs up Lexus IS300 and my RS : )

    Short and simple, i see blue headlights with yellow fogs coming up behind me and the light in front turns red. I rev a little to see if he will look over but he doesn’t, i know he herd me and i rev a couple more times but still nothing. Light turns green i roll out normally leaving it in first. At about 10mph he hits it and his front bumper is about a foot ahead of mine. I get on it and start making up some ground, end of first almost even and then i grab second and pull about a half a car on him, end of second his bumper was at me rear. Then he dived into the turn lane to never be seen again. Little did he know if he would have stayed on it he probably would have caught up and passed me with ease.

    Was a good fun race that i wasn’t expecting to win.

    Really think that you would have lost to a 215hp Lexus? I kind of doubt it, especially w/ your mods.

    wait till the IS430 comes out next year or the year after....

    I wouldn't even LOOK at anyone driving that car if I was at a light with them.

    IS430 is not going to be THAT scary... 305hp with a 0-60 in 5.9 seconds just is not that impressive for that kind of money.

    Oh well, we'll just wait till it comes out to see its actual specs.
