    sway bars

    LS400 Front Sway Bar As far as I know, nobody makes a "competition" front bar for the early LS400. The ADDCO rear bar does make a big improvement, but to take advantage of the ADDCO rear bar, the front bar rate still needs to be stiffer. If you don't mind a bit of common-sense grunt work, you...

    Why do old farts buy fancy sportcars?

    To Cribbj: Amen, brother cribbj. Rememember though, the original "episode" took place in Elay (LA), a place suspended from the rules of reality, so my earlier description of doinks/twits driving exoti-cars still has validity in that arena. yeah, i've driven sh*tters for too long, and finally...

    What brakes?

    Rod Millen Motorsports has a fairly reasonably priced upgrade kit based on the TT calipers and rotors. You need to understand that regardless of what upgrade kit you go with, you will need to switch to 18" wheels to clear the calipers, AND also fit the car without jacking it up. 245-45/40 ZR 18s...

    Performance Division

    This is going to make everybody feel bad, but Toyota is just too timid to have a real Lexus performance division. Their target market for the LS is dead people, and any car company that is too lame to offer a stick shift in their aledged performace cars (GS series) isn't really interested in...
