GReddy IS-F Exhaust Preview #1

      GReddy RACING TITANIUM (coming soon...)
UPDATE: Preview #2

There has been a lot anticipation over the new GReddy IS-F exhaust since our 1st prototype for the 0-60 Lexus IS-F project.  But over that time, we have been working on improving the design and making it the ultimate IS-F performance exhaust system...

  • The final production GReddy IS-F exhaust keeps it's unique V8 Dual to Quad design, with dual 60-70mm piping expanding to quad 60mm piping for great performance.
  • Another premium benefit is use of full light-weight Titanium.  Reducing the weight by 50% over the factory systems (from the OEM 71lbs to the GReddy Ti 35lbs)
  • The aggressive V8 grow is present, but tuned for the street with two inline resonators on the H-pipe and two large volume dual straight-through Titanium oval mufflers.
  • Requested by many IS-F owners is the option to run the included four bolt-on 90mm Titanium GReddy Tips or the factory OEM bumper mounted Tips.


More details on pricing, release date and sound clips coming soon...

Second 2nd Place in Round Two

Adding to our original Redline Time Attack schedule, the team decided to take a last-minute trip to Arizona for Round 2 at Firebird International Raceway.  The trip paid off with a 2nd Place in the FWD- Street Tire Class.  The car had greatly improved pace from round 1.

With rain storms Saturday, practice number one was canceled.  So we had little practice for the main event.  But the improvements made after our debut race, really showed some progress in the development of our #11 GReddy tC on the Sunday.  Still utilizing our Tuner Turbo Kit on the stock Scion 2AR engine, the upgraded OS Giken clutch and flywheel gave more reliability for the 300whp worth of boost.  While the lightened carbon hood and hatch, along with the APR front splitter and GT wing gave more stability for driver Takeshi Aizawa.  Allowing Takeshi to run a respectable 1:10.873 best lap, only 1.374 sec behind 1st.   The team is really looking forward to Rd.3 in Fontana on May 28-29th.

#11 GReddy tC at Redline Time Attack Rd.2, Sunday

Redline Time Attack Rd.2 - Firebird International Raceway -this Sat. & Sun.  (4/9-4/11)

Originally we were not planning on making the 6hr. trek out to Arizona, but after getting some new upgrades for the #11 GReddy tC, we are anxious to have some more fun on the track.

Since Round 1, we have lightened up the car a little with a carbon hood & hatch, added an APR aero splitter and wing, and got in our prototype OS Giken clutch, from Japan.

The upgrade clutch will allow us to "boost-up" on the stock (GReddy Turbocharged) 2AR engine.   Driver Takeshi Aizawa can't wait to get the car on the track!   Wish us luck for this week's race.

for more from the track don't forget to follow us on Twitter for updates
