Ultimate In-stock Street+ Brake Pads for Lexus RC F / GS F
If you don’t want to read, check out the video here:
Making a decision on which brake pads to go with is like looking for your future wife or husband, you need to be real honest about what you actually need and not what you maybe… might want… later… in the future… kind of sort of. Trust me be honest at the beginning and you wont needlessly suffer. From the factory the Lexus RC F and GS F have fairly strong brakes but they tend to be on the dustier end of things. of course that's the natural characteristic of a pad that has a strong grip you will naturally have more dust and potentially more noise especially during colder environments. Which brings us to the choices that are listed below is there such a way that you can get an improvement in their braking performance as

Everyday at Mod in Japan we get asked what are some good brake pad replacements for my Lexus RC F, GS F, IS F, LC500 and as well as many other various models. For over the last 10 years we have been making recommendations to Lexus owners on the types of brake pads that we believe to be great replacements.
After all the years and conversations we have arrived at these 3 brake pads that we believe we should review and inform the community on. Those are the Project Mu Type NS-C, Project Mu Type PS and the TOMS Racing Performer 600C. In this video we are going to go over the characteristics that make these pads the best street pads on the market for 95% of the Lexus community.
If you are someone that is going to actively track your car this video is not for you this is specifically for people that are daily drivers

The REVEL Motorsports / Ring Racing Toyota Supra GT4 we at Mod in Japan proudly support, was shipped from its home of at the Nürburgring Nordschleife in Germany and is currently in Japan for some critical off season testing in preparation for a full season of endurance races at the Nürburgring in the VLN Series as well as the 24-hour race that should hopefully happen this year.
What is incredible is that this team is a private team that is operated by real enthusiast I want to promote Toyota and Lexus the arena that is global motorsports. It is not uncommon for GT level cars to be shipped all over the world for development but it's during these times that make the biggest difference in the season for these teams. Every driver that runs at the Nürburgring has so much experience that they could run the course with their eyes closed with the only real variable of weather conditions messing them up. They have such high degrees of experience that you could save that they run the

BBS LM Forged Wheels for Lexus RC F and GS F the Legendary Japanese Made Forged 2 Piece German WheelPosted: May 09, 2020
There are few wheel designs in the world that have the legendary history and pedigree as the BBS LM that also crosses respectfully across all the different vehicle cultures (JDM, Euro, Domestic, Exotic). Although BBS as a brand is German and origin, the BBS LM is manufactured in Japan so there is actually a very strong case for BBS being a great fit for the JDM market. In fact of Lexus community most of the wheels for the F models are OEM and manufactured by BBS for Lexus.
So that’s what we wanted to talk about today is the BBS LM and providing more information about this wheel. The BBS LM wheel is made of aluminum and is die forged for considerable weight savings and strength. It comes as a two piece wheel with every face and barrel designed to work with each other as well as the engineering of those combinations checked against their stringent OEM standards. Every LM is tested for the integrity of its design due to the strict requirements that they have to follow for their

The Mod in Japan titanium intake is intricately pie cut so that the diameter of the piping is never compromised. To get the proper angle for the intake piping there are 3 choices, pinch bending, mandrel bending and pie cutting. Utilizing pinch Bending or Mandrel Bending there will always be a compromise in the diameter of the piping whether that is 1% or 15% that is a compromise. Pie cutting and welding is extremely labor intensive as each individual angled piece must be cut and hand welded. But in the pursuit of performance we decided this was the best method. We combine the best material, titanium, and the most extreme method to create what we believed to be the finest intake on the market. The OEM Air box is already efficient and prevents heat soak when the car is not in motion so utilizing it is ideal for daily driving situations which means the only other compromise is the bends. So utilizing the Mod in Japan titanium intake will increase the airflow which yields better throttle

New to the WedsSport wheels line up, the RN Series or Racing Navigate Series in the latest entry in their lineup in their relentlessly pursuit of weight reduction. The philosophy behind WedsSport Japan is removing unnecessary materials without affecting the core strength of the wheel thus increasing air volume for better tire stability as well as load weight. When considering an appropriate wheel for the Lexus RC F and GS F it’s important to remember that you already begin with a very solid wheel made by BBS Japan.
