Here she is! Couldn't be more happy with the way these wheels pulled it all together.
The new Vossen forged line looks amazing, and fitment is on point.

After some frustration of trying to get an alignment locally and no none having specs for our car yet I finally went to the dealership. Here's RSR springs drop before / after specs for this interested.




And a few random pictures that you may have seen if you follow me on IG: Zydan000

Not sure if anyone else here has ran across the fuel pump issue, unfortunately I did, car would start while I was waiting for wheels to be made. Lexus picked up car and dropped me off a 350F sport loaner, and sure enough fuel pump was out. They had to order part from Japan, so didn't have my car for 3 weeks, I called Lexus Customer Care and they provided excellent customer service and was able to take care of one of my car payments as a courtesy.
Hopefully no one else has to experience this issue, but I know of quite a few RC-F's that have had this problem. Hoping it's a one time issue now that it's all back and working, I got the car back the same day wheels and tires were delivered.

Just placed my order through Speed Freaks group buy for the Carbotech brake pads. Expect reviews once received and installed, I prob could have dealt with the OEM brake pad dusting (although excessive), but squeezing while braking at low speeds constantly is just embarrassing.

Awesome pics, looking sharp!

Could you elaborate a bit on what exactly the fuel pump issue is? I haven't heard much about it.

Thanks!

As far as the fuel pump it's basically just going out within the first 5k miles, my car had a delayed start like it was trying to turn over before it did, then finally it just wouldn't. Other people say they hear a whistling noise first, I didn't experience that myself.

You're welcome :).

Wow, thanks, that's a surprising issue to hear about. Hopefully Lexus is on top of it and it is remedied for all future RC Fs.

So it's about that time!

What do you guys think, classic Oval, or the round? I'm preferring the round, looks more agressive.




And lets not forget the very first sound clip, those pops at the end, sounds like a beast!
I got the clip from GTHAUS instagram, and uploaded it to youtube so I can share it, so not my car or my video, but hopefully I'll have videos of my own to share soon.

The ovals look classy, but the circle design is more aggressive. A tough choice indeed.

I haven't updated thread in a while, not much going on, just waiting for parts. Hoping GTHAUS should be ready anytime now, and a few other things in the works.

For now thought I'd just update with some recent pictures I took.

I'm so glad I came upon this thread! Your RC-F looks great Zydan.

And for what it's worth I'd go with the oval type, it just fits better than the round ones.
