  1. Sieht gut aus! Von Elvin? 👍
  2. Hallo F-reunde! Wir sind im Endstadium der Entwicklung weiterer Aerodynamik Teile für den IS F, wir legen hierbei den Fokus auf 100%ige Funktionalität. Anbei der Englische Text und alle Fotos/Diagramme, denke die sind fast selbsterklärend 🙂 “One good test is worth a thousand expert opinions.” — Wernher von Braun We finished last modifications and tests on the ISF front canards! As you can see in the graphic the smaller „street“ version (racinfg version will follow) already generates between 2,8kg of downforce at 100km/h and 19,4kg of downforce at 250km/h Typical corner speed around the racetracks of this world is around 100 and 200km/h. Data was from a stock IS F was compared with the modified one with splitters, no other parts like splitters were used. So we can calculate further improvement you could get with additional parts like frontsplitters. For the sake of clarity, we reduced the graphics to a few aero lines. Please note that we recommend a chassis mount oft he front bumper in case you want to use further aero parts! The canards can be glued on the front bumper for best results, installation can be done without taking the front bumper off. The additional hollow space will keep the advesive in spot, without pressing it on the outside under pressure. We are looking forward to start the production very soon, the plastic version will be a 100% in-house production by our German plant, a carbon/dry carbon version will follow. Our goal is to make some really functional aero parts for the F performance models, there are many different products on the market, but basically not one of them is really tested, parts like the CCSR parts are very hard to get, since we are happy enough to have access to basically all Lexus/Toyota performance models with feedback from the engineers and drivers we decided that its's time to pull the trigger and improve the parts further more and make them available for the publicity 🙂 Let me know what you think!
  3. Ich hab’s aufgegeben zu versuchen den Kühlmittelstand beim F über Minimum zu bekommen, mittlerweile nicht mehr mein erster F und bei beiden selbes Phänomen wie bei dir. Wie hier schon richtig geschrieben solltest du dir langsam Gedanken zwecks Austauschkühler machen, deine wird verstopft sein und vermutlich auch bald fällig werden. Anbei auch Fotos vom Wärmetauscher.
  4. Willkommen und viel Spaß mit dem F! Lexus F owners Europe ist die größte Gruppe für F Fahrer bei Facebook und wir haben noch eine Whatsappgruppe für F Besitzer, sind bald 70 Leute drin, da bekommst du immer recht schnell Hilfe bei Fragen etc. Wir organisieren mehrfach im Jahr recht große Treffen, wobei dieses Jahr wohl eher flachfällt, wir hoffen noch auf das 24h Rennen 😊👍 Die V-Max lässt sich öffnen für 850€ inkl. neuer Software damit der Wagen untenrum etwas besser geht. Hatte hier mal einen ausführlichen Thread zu dem Thema eröffnet mit Diagrammen etc. Gruß Roman
  5. Hallo Mitleser, weiter unten unsere Zusammenfassung zum Thema LC und unsere Vorrausssgungen 😊 wie so oft auf Englisch, hoffe alle interessierten verstehen es 👍 🚀 LC F News 🚀 Things we know so far: -New developed 4.0 V8 Twin-Turbo engine with 600-650hp -Engine will be tested during the 24h endurance race at the Nürburgring in September 2020 -Price Tag around 180.000-200.000$ -Complete new development of all performance parts Speculations/News: - 80% that the car will be a two seater, even with a higher stiffness than the LFA the LC F will definitely need the extra stiffness to compete against the M8 and other rivals. - It probably won't be an "F" model any longer... Former F chief engineer Yukihiko Yaguchi officially retired this month, it seems that Akio Toyoda prefers the Gazoo Racing department over other ones in the Toyota motor corp. All testing of the LC prototype at the ring have been done by Gazoo Racing, former tests of the CCS-R, RC F GT, RC F GT3 and even the new Supra GT4 have been done by our favorite racing team Ring Racing, currently both teams work together very well and even share the same box at the pitlane, but as far we know RingRacing has no information about the development of the LC F or even the LFA mule that was spotted around the ring. - The LFA mule that was spotted at the ring with some minor changes is possibly a testmule for the new LC F, as you can see in the pictures they changed the front and rear fenders + the rear bumper, that means that they are probably testing a whole new suspension which is completely different compared to the current LC ones. Of course it makes sense to test a new suspension on a much stronger performance car like the LFA which will be technically much closer to the LC F than a stock LC500 with around 100hp less. As you can also see on the test mule photos of the LC they changed the brake system against a racing system and the front has more exposed coolers than a stock LC, it's quite sure that they will have massive thermical problems with the new engine, just as any other manufacturer had in the past. Probably they are testing the cooling system and the new suspension first to redesign the whole new model around it instead of beginning with the design of the body first. - Around september the LFA test mule was stopped by the police around the Nürburgring, a Japanese driver forgot his driving license at the hotel, using Japanese drivers who work close with Gazoo racing indicates again that it will be a Gazoo Racing LC and not a LC F. - Former race car aerodynamics for the RC F GT and the CCSR were developed by TRAS carbon who always worked close with Yaguchi-San, the former F engineer, since a few years there were no new developments by TMG or TRAS, that means hat the whole development will be probably done completely by Gazoo racing, an other indicator for a Gazoo Racing LC. - Our former guess on the release date was 2021/2022, since they officially announced to test the new Twin-Turbo engine during the racing season 2020. One year later they could have easily tested the whole pre production LC F during the racing season 2021 to make last corrections. Today Germany confirmed the cancellation of all big events until end of August, that basically means that there won't be a racing season 2020, the 24h race was already postponed from May to September, with the new regulations in Germany and the state of emergency in Japan we don't expect any or much testing of the LC F in 2020. So the new release date would be probably more around 2022 unfortunately. What are your thoughts on the upcoming LC F?
  6. Hallo Freunde des F-ahrvernügens, anbei die Story und Fotos zum letzten je gebauten LFA, ich hoffe ihr könnt etwas Englisch da ich der Einfachheit halber die Texte immer auf Englisch vorbereite. Falls nicht einfach fragen 🙂 The last LFA - 500/500 A question I often hear is: What's the most unique Lexus you have seen? For sure it's this LFA with Nürburgring package, as many of you know the "standard" LFA was limited to 500 cars worlwide, some lucky people could buy the even more limited LFA with Nürburgring package which was limited to just 50 cars. The car you see above is the last car that left the Motomachi plant in Japan on the 14th december 2012, the car was signed by the Toyota Motor Corporation president Akio Toyoda himself. Specifications: The Nürburgring package featured an extra 7.4 kW(10 PS, 10 hp) from its V10 engine, bringing the total to 420 kW (571 PS, 563 hp). It also featured a re-calibrated transmission with gear shifts made faster by 0.05 seconds, a front splitter, stiffer and more adjustable suspension, lightweight alloy wheels wrapped in track tyres( Bridgestone Potenza RE70), aerodynamic canards at the sides of the front bumper, and a large fixed rear wing. The LFA with the Nürburgring Package is a competition-focused variant, and was available in four exterior colours, namely glossy black, matte black, race yellow, and whitest white. Buyers received training sessions at the Nürburgring Nordschleife, accompanied by Nürburgring chief instructors, a one-night stay at the Lindner Congress and Motorsport Hotel Nürburgring, admission to the ring°werk leisure park, a Nürburgring branded jacket, and a one-year pass to the circuit. The warmup round: The Nürburgring Package LFA was tested at the Nürburgring in June 2011. Driven by Akira Iida, the LFA set a confirmed time of 7:22.85, the 10th-fastest time ever for a production vehicle. Lexus confirmed that this lap video was recorded as a "warm up" video for the "ADAC 24-hours" for exhibition purposes. The LFA hit 292 km/h (181 mph) on the last straight uphill climb, which is one of the highest speeds achieved by factory standard sports car on that segment of the track. Standard OEM Bridgestone Potenza RE70 performance street tyres were used. The final round: On 2 September 2011 reports came from Lexus via Twitter as well as Chris Harris of Evo Magazine that the Lexus LFA Nürburgring Package completed a lap of the Nurburgring in 7:14.64 with a top speed of 298 km/h (185 mph) on the "Dottinger" uphill climb, the fifth fastest time for a production car at the time, and almost ten seconds quicker than the Porsche 911 GT2 RS at 7:24 taken by us during the TOYOTA GAZOO Racing festival with our friends from F performance Poland I hope you like it!

  7. Beides 🙂 Generell erfolgen 90% der Bremswirkung aber über die Front, die hinteren Bremsen spielen kaum eine Rolle beim F.
  8. Hallo F-reunde, anbei alle Spezifikationen des CCS-R, hoffe Englisch ist okay, wenn nicht fragt ruhig 🙂 Ring Racing CCS-R "widebody" specifications Full carbon widebodykit: (Front and rear bumper, hood, trunk, trunk spoiler, center console, front fenders, rear fender flares) produced by TRAS Japan, only 3-5 widebody CCS-R worldwide All used in the Nüburgring VLN endurance races, SP8 class Engine: complete stock, about 424hp or 430Ps due to modified exhaust. Transmission: Stock, slightly improved hydraulic pressure, therefore improved shifting times Only 7 gears in the VLN races due to the regulations( 1st gear is deprogrammed) Transmission cooler, Diff. cooler 120L FT3 fuel cell Reinforced monocoque with roll cage Air jack system Fire extinguishing system Kill switch communication system Total weight: 1440Kg without fuel and driver Brakes: Front: 6 piston Brembo system Rear: Stock Racing brake pads from project Mu Wheels: TWS forged wheels 18" x 10.5 from Tan-ei-sya Tires: Front and Rear 280mm (nominal width) Yokohama slicks Or Front and rear 305mm Pirellis (sizes are nearly identical) Exhaust: Fujitsubo Japan Gruß Roman
  9. Bin nicht sicher ob es nicht auch 8Zylinder Versionen gibt, Reglement gibt bis zu 650Ps her und Max. 10 Zylinder so viel ich weiß, einen passenden 5.4 V8 Motor aus dem LC GT/ RCF GT3 hat man auch 👍 irgendwo fahren mit Sicherheit 8Zylinder Versionen rum, es ist sehr schwer an Infos zu Motoren zu kommen bei solchen Wagen, das meiste ist auf Japanisch.
  10. Geposteten Artikel oder auch nur den extra rauskopierten Text überhaupt gelesen?? Der Wagen hat 0,0 BMW Teile verbaut, weder der Motor noch das Getriebe sind vom BMW und auch der gesamte Rest des Wagens hat nichts mit einem Serien Supra gemeinsam, genauso wie nahezu jeder Super GT, GT3 Rennwagen etc. Immer Wahnsinn wenn man sich Mühe gibt mit Fotos, Infos Posts etc. und die Leute nichtmal 2 Sätze lesen können oder wollen, Hauptsache die üblichen Parolen rufen 😉
  11. Vier Zylinder mit jenseits der 600Ps 🙂 Quelle mit Soundprobe: “What? They make Supras with four cylinders now?” The RI4AG is not your average BMW plant. Manufactured by Toyota Technocraft in accordance with Class 1 regulations, this bad boy pushes more than 600 horsepower from 2.0 liters of displacement. By comparison, the B48 in the road-going model specific to the Japanese market is rated at 194 or 255 brake horsepower. The 4AG moniker harks back to the 4A-GE engine in the AE86 Corolla Levin and AE86 Sprinter Trueno. A later version of this blunderbuss leveled up to five valves per cylinder, and even a Corolla could be specified with it. Turning our attention back to the GR Supra GT500, the track-only monster will replace the Lexus LC 500 in the Super GT series. Its main rivals are the NSX and GT-R, and in the case of the Honda, the engineers had to relocate the engine over the front axle to comply with the 2020 season’s regulations. Based on the aerodynamic setup, the maximum velocity of a Class 1 racecar is estimated at 186 miles per hour (300 km/h) based on the latest round of testing. The transmission of the GT500 is also different from the ZF 8HP in the GR Supra, a sequential transmission with a motorsport-style clutch paddle. Class 1 regulations also apply to the DTM, which adopted them at the beginning of the 2019 season. The biggest change to the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters in recent history includes a 9,500-rpm limit for the engine, Garrett turbocharging, and push-to-pass overtake assist. Because the 4.0-liter V8 is gone, the minimum weight of DTM racers has also dropped to 1,070 kilograms including the driver and a full tank of gasoline. Two more changes are worthy of note, namely the ban of launch control and the switch to a rearview camera instead of a traditional mirror.
  12. Hallo Freunde 🙂 Anbei Fotos des Gazoo Racing Supra Super GT`s aus Japan, der ein oder andere wird sich sicher über Fotos freuen 🙂 Gruß Roman
  13. Hallo F-reunde, passend zum Wochenende einige schöne Fotos des RC-F Track Editions den wir in Japan ablichten durften. Was wirklich auffällt ist das auch alle Lexus Modelle in Japn deutlich harmonischer in die Umgebung einfügen, ob es nun an der Architektur liegt oder anderer Formaprache oder der komplett anderen Ausleuchtung in Tokyo ist schwer zu sagen, auf jeden Fall wirken die Modell vor Ort nochmal ganz anders 🇯🇵😊
  14. Da wir sowieso nie mehr als 4 Stunden Schlaf bekommen haben aufgrund des straffen Zeitplans haben wir auf ein Zimmer zurückgegriffen das den Namen garnicht verdient 🙈 Die 4 versprochenen Person dort unterzubringen hat sich als Tetris Übung herausgestellt... Warmes Wasser und Heizung/Klima/Strom war vorhanden, das hat uns gereicht und wir konnten alleine hier ein Vermögen sparen, 200€ für 3 Übernachtungen in absoluter Toplage für 4 Personem vs. 750€ die wir sonst in der Lage gezahlt hätten für 3 Tage/4 Personen. 60432F0B-1DF8-43CD-B240-7216412AF3D4.MP4
  15. So teuer ist es nicht, Hin und Rückflug haben wir für 500€ pro Kopf bekommen, Unterkunft direkt in Shinjuku, dem Vergnügungsviertel umgerechnet 17€ pro Kopf/Tag. Essen ist günstiger als hier, man kann für unter 10€ echt gut zum Mittag/Abend essen. Metro fahren ist sehr günstig und schnell, jederzeit WLAN gibt es über kleine Router in der Größe eines Handys die man via Hotspot nutzt, teils für bis zu 10 Geräte für 2-5€ am Tag, je nach Anbieter, reserviert man online und holt diese direkt am Flughafen ab. Alles in allem kann man sehr sehr günstig nach Japan wenn man auf einen gewissen Standard verzichten kann. So war es uns möglich auch mal spontan für 3 Tage nach Japan zu fliegen um alles abzudrehen 👍🇯🇵
