I've had my IS for about a month now...previosly drove a manual Miata.

My question is this: After being beat by a hideously ugly IROC last night, how do you drive your IS to get the most performance from it? Do you use auto or manual mode? Powerbrake on the launch? It was pretty sad to stomp on the gas and watch that car just pull on me like that. Thanks guys (and girls).

Ciao!

well, from a performance standpoint.

there's no way in hell you'll beat a large bore motor like that w/o any engine mods, pure and simple.

now the question is, what do you want to do about it?

What do I want to do about it? Well, I'd like to CHANGE that =)

The guy wasn't a very good driver...wheel spin all over the place and a really laggy launch. Despite the fact, I had the pedal to the carpet and was going nowhere really fast.

I would LIKE to get the SRT intake and GReddy exhaust, to begin with, however, I wanted to hear a few more testimonials first (how much HP that combination may yeild). I like the classy look of the IS300 and don't want to make it sound like "Powered by Maxwell House Exhaust" if you know what I mean =)
