In May, we continued to push our Lexus IS-F to the limit testing new products and designs. Our new oil cooler reduced oil temperatures and allowed us to stay on the track longer, but also resulted in us reaching too high a transmission temperature. This is a minor issue we plan to address for our next track session. Our new suspension, lower control arm bushings, air/oil separator performed flawlessly, and we will continue to push the limits developing new products and proving the design at the track.
RR Racing sponsored a meeting of Club Lexus members in Baltimore. There were about 30 IS-Fs and two RC-F. We showed our latest products, and our chief engineer, Rafi Raban, explained the technical features of each product. Club members expressed excitement and enthusiasm for so many new products for the IS-F, IS 250/350, and GS models. We also had a drawing of an Air/Oil Separator. It was great meeting members face-to-face and hear directly their product preferences and needs. We are hopping to be able to sponsor an even larger club meeting later this year that will be great fun for members and their families. Stay tuned to our Facebook and Google+ pages as well our announcements on the Lexus Forum!
RR Racing designed braking system for Element Tuning Time Attack FR-S race car. The system was designed to resolve braking problems Phil had with the OEM system. We initially tested the system during our VIR session earlier this year. After additional testing and several races this season, Phil was very happy with system’s performance.
