the pig from toyoyoyo just doesn't want to quit and continues to post more embarrassing lap times lol and merely 2s faster than the std car, because of a better rubber ? then why call it a track ed and slap a wing ? lololololol

this car is considered a broad daylight theft with shit performance, just like the lfailed :)

 

lexsux, the name says it all :))))

What's more the RC F track edition had Pilot Sport 4S tyres which in tyres tests were proven to have superior grip to the Pilot SuperSport which the non track version had in its lap so if one subtracts say 0.75 sec from the 1.6 sec difference that's less than a second gain with the track edition on the same tyres. Enough said lol

2020 Lexus RC F Track Edition Review: Bark Over Bite

The Lexus RC F isn't perfect. A laggy transmission, tons of understeer, and a curb weight that rivals some full-size sedans make it not as alluring in a class that includes very good alternatives like the BMW M4, Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe, and Audi RS5.

While the Track Edition certainly looks faster, it’s not. - lol

It’s not blistering fast for the segment. - but the pro drivers on fl this car better than anyone else lol

The eight-speed automatic is faster to upshift – though, still a bit sluggish on the downshift

the ridiculous roar from the 5.0-liter V8 sounds even better routed through a titanium exhaust. Much of that noise is still artificial, though, funneled through the in-car speakers. - hahahahahaha

This car is still really comfortable, extremely quiet, and in Eco and Normal driving roads, no more aggressive than a normal RC F. - just like a corolla lol

But, swallowing a $96,650 asking price for a vehicle that's no more powerful, only slightly lighter, and still as dated as the $65,000 coupe on which it's based is a challenge.

Lexus touts exclusivity; only about 50 Track Editions will come to the U.S. Still, the Audi RS5 Coupe costs $74,200, the Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupe costs $78,495, and BMW M4 CS costs $103,100. So the RC F Track Edition is near the top of the spectrum within the class, and it’s far from the most capable.

an ass-clowns dream machine lol

Michael  9m ago @dr. cosimo

Dude you are an absolute hater! The RCF and RCF track edition in Europe are de-tuned to 464 PS down from 480 PS from the North American version. They have 15 less horsepower and also the RCF in the video has heavy oversteer. Drives like a Corolla? When does a Corolla pull 0.98G on the skidpad? You are absolutely the worst trolling this RCF board with your hate. The video shows the RCF oversteering a lot out of corners means the tires are not up to the task. Whether the tires were worn out or there were issues, no one knows. The fact that the RCF track edition is still within 1 seconds of the M4 Competition and nearly as quick as the C63S AMG that has more power. It is a track edition in the sense, it is supposed to balance both street driving and track capabilities. It still has all of the luxuries of what RCF typically has, but is 170 lbs lighter with carbon ceramic brakes. If anyone wants all-out performance, that person would go with a Corvette. It is not an all-out track car, but a track edition of a high performance street sports car.

i think the doc brings up some good points and this lexsux model should be discontinued, enough with all this bs track elephant edition.

Speedklz  9m ago @dante

No, the RCF TE is contrinuing in 2021. He has brought nothing up that is of any value other than proving he is a troll and a hater. PERIOD! He is a troll and a hater and a lot of the things he mentions he is clueless. Ridiculous how this page is swarmed by trolls and haters. RS5 and C63 AMG both are heavier than the RCF especially the track edition by about 300 lbs. The TE weighs 3800 lbs while the RS5 and C63 AMG both weigh 4100+ lbs. The transmission received universal praises for being exceptionally fast by almost all of the reviewers. He is simply a troll. The RCF in the video clearly is heavily oversteering yet, he cannot even tell the difference that the driver is actually oversteering. Not understeering. It is an issue with the tires. Not the car. The driver is counter-steering a lot. As someone mentioned above, the RCF in Europe had to be de-tuned to meet the new emissions standards for large displacement V8 and it makes only 464 PS as opposed to 480 PS for the North American version. The 15 HP power difference makes a difference on the track.


User avatar

Speedklz  9m ago @dante

Only a troll and a hater would draw any kind of parallels whatsoever between RCF and a Corolla. That is so ridiculous, it is not even funny.


User avatar

dante  9m ago @Speedklz

here's what the doc had to say.........

lexsux didn't bring anything new, what they have done is transferred the carryover engine and transmission from the isf on to a renamed model called rcf and gsf which failed permanently.

even the overhyped north murican version ain't worth it, just because they did few cf parts upfront and in the back doesn't mean it should cost you a six figure, people would go for something lighter and faster such as the vw-carrera base and believe me everyone would choose an audi / merc / bmw over the lexsux in the eu :)

 

only scott pruett would tell you it's the best car ever made with a bottle of wine to sell you along with the car.

they should have called it the ricer edition with couple of f&f stickers and priced it below 50k.

the world has moved on and got bored of dct, hybrids, ev, journey to different planets and lexsux is still stuck with a torque converter transmission out of a 1990 ls400.

according to our strong intel, its failure successor is called the lc500.

don't shoot the messenger :)


User avatar

Speedklz  9m ago @dante

Oh so Matt Farrah owns everyone and has the word of authority. His opinions are subjective. We just see the RCF Track edition ran almost the same lap time as the C63S AMG and I already stated the issue is with the tires where it is oversteering heavily in the video. This has nothing to do with Matt Farraj's subjective opinions. It works well with your hatred and trolling. His subjective opinions mean nothing. RCF NOTHING! TE put down a very impressive lap time on THAT EXACT race track faster than the M2 competiton and the Supra. You are also clueless about DCT since brands are DITCHING DCT! Alfa Romeo has auto transmission, M5 has auto, C63 has auto and RS5 has auto. All of these ditched DCT. Also, the new generation M3/M4 are going to have auto and they are ditching DCT. I could go on with a long list of cars that ditched DCT for Again, when you are so obsessed with hating and trolling, you tend to forget to the most recent updates to check your facts.


User avatar

Speedklz  9m ago @dante

Hater and troll, the new M3/M4 will have "Steptronic automatic". It has been announced already by BMW. Maybe, if you could open your eyes a bit more and realize how the market is shifting rather than looking for your confirmatio bias.


User avatar

Speedklz  9m ago @Speedklz

When Matt Farrah did his 2015 review of the RCF, he lavished praises on the RCF calling it superior to the C63 AMG and the RS5 (previous generation ones) and almost as good as the M4. Fast forward 5 years, Lexus brings out a lighter, more focused track edition and he calls it absolute cr*p! OK that makes sense.

"no more aggressive than a normal RC F. - just like a corolla lol"

It is the type of BS that gets written. You should use your common sense. Someone who draws parallels between RCF and a Corolla is a troll and a hater. The person criticizes the RCF in the same exactly like where a 3800 lbs RCF is hundreds of pounds lighter than the 4100+ lbs C63S AMG and RS5. The troll reserverd all of the criticism for the RCF and nothing for anything else. That is the definition of being a troll. This place is swarmed with trolls. PERIOD!

LaFournier  9m ago @Cammisa

Dude, that is the real sound of the RCF V8 engine in that video by SportAuto lap. It is piped in, but it is not fake or synthesized. Rolling down the window, that is how the stock motor/exhaust sounds in the cabin even with windows open sound coming from outside.


User avatar

LaFournier  9m ago @LaFournier

Is the RCF TE overpriced? Yes. Can one find better performing cars for the price? Of course. However, the RCF in Europe has less horsepower. It is 464 PS or 448 HP due to CAFE. The North America RCF/TE jhas 480 PS or 473 HP. Big difference there if it had full power. The RCF with :39 had 477 PS or 471 HP. Read the press release. Look at the long drift he pulls at 0:32. That was a few tenths right there trying the rear to get traction. Not the driver's fault, but it was struggling for traction on that track. Still it did a respectable 1:37 despite being neutered to meet the emissions requirements from large displacement mass produced engines in Europe and traction limitations. Also, automatics are the way of the future. DCTs will no longer be in mass produced cars. BMW itself said they are going to be phasing out DCTs in favor of the automatics. New M3/M4 is said to have torque converter automatic like the Supra/Z4. In RCF, the torque converter is locked so it gives a mechanical engagement. It does not feel slushbox at all. Autos have gotten very good now.

dante  9m ago @Speedklz

imho, they should've called it the elephant edition.

why else would they choose a matte grey to debut this riced up rc ? because it represents the weight of an elephant with funky cosmetic foil that looks like carbon fiber.

i'd even pick an audi rs6 with a manual transmission, roof rack, 2 dogs and a nagging wife over this jap crap calf that is suffering from an identity crisis lol

'Is the RCF TE overpriced? Yes.'

that's one of 10 reasons it's a total flop and nobody would go near one.

many people have no idea it even exists outside murica, all the hype is coming from the fanboys and the media :)

automatics in european cars are far more better than the one in lexsux cars, swtich to manual shifting and you'll notice how laggy and retarded it gets with lexsux cars :)

they should go back to what they used to do best, boring with fake luxury interior.

You are absolutely clueless! RCF TE most of them have been sold because they were very limited production run. Also, you are clueless as the transmission in the RCF is absolutely brilliant. It shifts extremely fast and in manual mode, it has an extremely mechanical feel. It has always received universal praise. I own one and take it to the track myself so I know about it A LOT MORE than you do. So stop spamming and trolling this RCF page, hater.

LaFournier  9m ago @dante

"why else would they choose a matte grey to debut this riced up rc ? because it represents the weight of an elephant with funky cosmetic foil that looks like carbon fiber."

I tried to be nice and objective, but boy the hatred and despise from the European trolls and spammers runs deep here on the RCF page. Again, you are a European/German snob and hater and a troll spamming the RCF page. Wish there were moderators on this page that won't allow haters and trolls like you roaming free here because it is real carbon fiber and real carbon ceramic brakes on the RCF TE. Also, it weighs several hundred pounds less than the most of the competitors at 3800 lbs. You have nothing to say about the heavier cars like the C63S AMG, RS5 etc. and reserve all of the weight criticism for the RCF.


User avatar

dante  9m ago @LaFournier

dude stop lying, the transmission is shit and all the testers have already confirmed it.

the engine is weak compared to the c63 and rs5 and it always finishes in last place.

the germans lead, while lexsux tries to follow and copy, but so far has failed. hence the lfailed trying to be a mix ferrari enzo and carrera gt.

like the gsf, this one will die too as soon as they realize it's not selling like a camry or rav4. it's only a matter of time before the fart-performance from lexsux is buried too.

the mods here all hold german citizenship and do not give a shit about japanese cars, they all own at least an 4 german cars that will whiplash the rcf and leave it in dust and smoke.

stop crying and crawl back to lexsux enthusiast where they can pat you on the back and cheer you up with more bs, the f&f car thing only works on murican soil all thanks to hollywood and bin diesel.

german engineering > overhyped boring lexsux wannabe mustang gt

Cocobe  9m ago @dante

its weak because it's natural aspirated. I'd really take the Lexus 5.0 v8 over both turbo charged C63 and RS5. 400+hp is plenty. It'll be many times more reliable too. Shame that the chassis is so weak and the infotainment so behind. In comparison, have a look at the nightmares the previous C63 had with its engines. The current crop of German overpowered turbo engines, that is what boring is. And the excitement is the constant finger crossing about whether you'll get a $4000+ repair bill when you come up to your 3 year old car.

LaFournier  9m ago @dante

You are a blind fanboi, hater and troll while I own an RCF and I know a lot more than a hater troll who is driven by emotions. You have fabricated pretty much everything even calling real carbon fiber fake. I actually take it to the track and the transmission is lightning fast and anyone objective and rational can see that in the videos where everything is instantaneous in high rpms, manual and sport+. If you notice, I did not say anything bad about any German cars. You are a blind fanboi who is here driven by emotions and hatred. Keep your fanboism up! You are absolutely disgusting that you are spamming an RCF page with your hatred. Absolutely dispicable. Sad part is, this is an RCF page and it is supposed to be objective metrics of the RCF. Not spammers, blind fanbois and troll haters littering all over the page.

Your fanboism and hatred aside, even a monkey who has more intelligence than you can see the transmission shifts lightening fast. I take mine to the track and I respect all of the German cars unlike you hater and spammer

RCF engine is an absolute gem. The blind fanhoi and hater troll has no credibility. He is here to simply destroy this page by not letting people who like this car talk. I own an RCF and raced against stock M4s on the track. It feels like a proper 500 HP car. Most of the people love naturally aspriated high-revving V8s. I own one and it is the main reason why I bought the RCF over an M4. I spent $80+ K for my RCF carbon/TVD because the engine is a masterpiece. The sound and response is incredible.

 


User avatar

FastestLaps  9m ago @Cocobe

Yeah its naturally aspirated so it lacks the "wall of torque" that you get with turbos, but it has plenty of displacement to still give nice kick in the butt acceleration. And the sound must be delightful.

LaFouriner  9m ago @LaFournier

AutoBilld RCF TE in the same 1:37 as C63S AMG. So if I take the BS that RCF has a weak engine, it means it has a far more brilliant chassis to make up for the weakness. AutoBild did a standard M4 in 1:38. the This data here speaks for itself. Both of these cars are being driven by champion racing car driver on the same day and on the same track. Even a regular RCF (non-TE) is pulling 1.41G in the turns. With the same pro driver, the difference between a standard M4

Also, speedo to speedo comparsion, RCF is doing 2 mph within the M4 at all times. Absolute fabois and spammers will call RCF engine weak

I said I own an RCF carbon/TVD in Molten Pearl and can post pictures. I wrote the cheque for my RCF and can prove it. You run your mouth so passionately about hating on Lexus/Toyota. What do you drive? If I ask you for a picture with your name on a paper, would you do that? I would like to see what you drive because you come across as a cocky fanboi who drives something so special that it is so beyond and above of what an RCF is that you feel the need to completely destroy the page.

those old videos won't help, the lexsux is old, rubbish and outdated. get over it lexsux boy scout.

what pobst had to say about the calf

  • inconsistent handling
  • shitty transmission
  • it understeers like an elephant should and if you turn hard it could randomly oversteer without notice lol

 

competition is out with newer models and lexsux is still stuck with this old xc10 chassis, what are they expecting ? an update via usb or a free wifi connection availability near you ? lol

they're better off switching to cvt and 2.0 petrol/hybrid engines, competing with germans takes a lot more than just a stroked engine out of the ls460.

He was using automatic mode. It is unpredictable and I agree with what he said. He left at least a 2/10ths out because of using auto mode. He said it himself that not using manual mode cost the lap time. I NEVER use automatic mode around the track. The fastest shifts and torque converter lockup happens in manual mode. Lexus made automatic mode for daily driving. He said it himself he should have used manual mode. I only use manual mode around the race track. He said it himself he should have used manual mode.

Like I posted above, here Randy Pobst ran both RCF and M4 on the track on the same day and same track and in the video, he clearly uses manual mode. RCF was even with the M4.

Understeer is easily fixed stickier tires. The front end camber is only slightly negative, which is why going to hard in the turns can cause tires to lose grip. Even the C8 Corvette has understeer and many M cars have understeer for the same reason. I can post videos up on that as proof. I got stickier Cup 2 tires on my RCF and the front end sticks like glue under heavy corner loads around the race track. Since I have two other daily drivers, I can get away with semi-slick tires on the road. I can carry at least another 10 - 12 mph speed into the turn with stickier Cup 2 tires.

Also, if a car (like the RCF telemetry data above) is pulling 1.41G in hands of Randy Pobst in the turns at high speeds, it speaks to the brilliance of the chassis/suspension and that it has very high mechanical grip. Numbers don't lie.


User avatar

LaFournier  9m ago @dante

Why Lexus did not do it in the first place? You might be surprised, but I agree with you. Lexus (even the track edition) tried to make it too many things in one. Because RCF is a combination of performance/track capabilities and street drivability, You could blame Lexus for trying to make RCF too many things in one, but I love the versatility even though, I only drive it occasionally. However, I can put two baby seats in the back and stroller in the trunk. It works well for me. However, I agree with you that Lexus confuses its product. They made a track edition, but did not focus it enough on the track since it still has all of the luxury and also does not have aggressive enough tires to stick on the race track as a track car should.

If you have been to the track, 3/1t0hs is almost fender to bumper at 118 mph that they had. It is a vefy close finish.

That AutoExpress review was absolutely horrible. Having taken my RCF (even though, mine is the carbon fiber/TVD package), I can totally see how he is doing it completely incorrectly. AutoBild had RCF and M4 only 1.5 seconds apart (1:39.5 for RCF and 1:38 for M4).

Randy Pobst is a professional race car driver. He is far more capable than that hack. I can post a few lap comparisons where RCF was quicker than the M4 (EVO magazine). Not a hack journalist and he was able to get both of the cars with 3/10ths around Streets of Willow.

'Lastly, the biggest reason why this supercar failed is because of its price tag. in 2011 the LFA hit the market with a $400,000 sticker on its windscreen. it was almost double the price of a Ferrari 599, again a Ferrari 599. Also, this price tag was almost six times more than the GTR, it's closest competitor as mentioned previously. It just didn't make sense! All these reasons destined this samurai to fail and fall. '

if anyone wants a real v10 supercar, it's either this

Here's the Lexus RC F Track Edition being tested and for 477PS it's bloody slow. BTW the gap of 0.7 sec between the 0-60 mph and 0-100 km/h is wrong. Oh and it changes from 2nd to third gear just above 100 km/h so 0-60 mph should be 4.6 s :)

They absolutely s*ck at getting performance numbers. RCF is a 12.2 - 12.3 seconds car in the 1/4 mile. Even the stock RCF does 12.5 seconds on the dragstrip (videos of it) and motortrend tested it in 12.5 seconds in 2017. The track edition should be at least 2/10th quicker.

The lexus track edition is bad at the track lololol


User avatar

SpeedKing  9m ago @dante

Yeah exactly coz PDrive tested both the RCF and RCF Track version. Same stretch of road and same air temp and the RCF did 13.44 @177 km/h vs 13.48 @177 km/h for the Track. Yes that's slower than Euro tests but given PDrive is Aussie there were no bribes nor tunes lol


User avatar

LaFournier  9m ago @SpeedKing

Common sense > hatred and trolling. 13.4 seconds is close to 1 second slower than what RCF always tests at. 13.4 is a 335 300 HP car time. A much faster RCF should be putting down MUCH quicker time. Let alone TE. RCF track edition makes the same power and is 170 lbs lighter. Why would it not be a 2/10 or 3/10 quicker than a standard RCF? Standard RCF has already run 12.5 on the drag strips and there are video on it.

2021 supra ran 12.1 :)


User avatar

LaFournier  9m ago @dante

There are plenty of RCF vs Supra rolling start races from 40 mph and RCF beats the Supra every time. The press ringer 12.1 second does not count as C&D is the biggest BMW supporter. If you want to talk about tunes and payment of money, you should be talking about BMWs as their C&D magazine numbers are far more impressive than their real life stock performance.


User avatar

LaFouriner  9m ago @dante

I am taking about the 2020 Supra and not the 2021. I know 2021 is supposed to be quicker, but the 2020 early magazine numbers were highly inflated by C&D probably because of a press ringer. In the GT350 vs Supra vs M2 comparo, C&D got 12.5 seconds from the 2020 Supra thus contradicting their own 12.1 seconds early test.

Here is a video of headerx/exhaust/intake and heavy aftermarket wheels. RCF with only bolt ons running a 12.0 seconds @ 119 mph. It has no other mods as this guy is a known owner in the community. These Australian testers absolute blow considering a 300 HP 335i runs a 13.4 seconds all day long or a 370Z. I hope I don't have to post videos of RCF putting bus lengths on a 370Z.

 


User avatar

LaFournier  9m ago @LaFouriner

This gives better context. The 335i has headers/exhaust/intake and Juice box 4 tune with Ethanol mix while the RCF is running only headers/exhaust and everything else stock. I am sure everyone knows how quick bolt on and tune 335i are and the RCF with only two bolt ons still beats it

SpeedKing  9m ago @LaFournier

I provided a comparison between the RCF and RCF Track version by the same tester and you call that trolling? Don't shoot the messenger. You, like most peeps, have not considered that the far greater downforce that the Track version has reduces the acceleration so any advantage the lighter weight would have is negated :)


User avatar

LaFournier  9m ago @SpeedKing

Sorry, you took it the wrong way. It is not directed towards you. I am only question the Australian guys. Their testing is dreadful even for the standard RCF with a time of 13.4 seconds. For the TE, it could be the downforce, but there is no other US magazine to compare against. Australia possibly might be getting the neutered, detuned European/Chinese version of the RCF/TE with the CAFE/particulate filter bringing the power down to 464 PS (448 HP) while the US gets RCF/TE with 477 PS or 473 HP. Nothing to do with you. I am only posting how something is seriously off. Might not be their fault. Could be the altitude or the gas they get in Australia or something else we don't know. 13.4 seconds is 335 performance figures that they get all the time. That is all I am saying.

Look at these tests of the older RCF with carbon/TVD (477 PS or 471 HP). No launch/one-foot rollout. Just full throttle from idle and VBOX data

0-100 km/h: 4.7 seconds
0-200 km/h: 14.5 seconds

 

0-100 km/h: 4.6 seconds
0 - 200 km/h: 13.0 seconds

 


User avatar

SpeedKing  9m ago @LaFournier

The Aussie testers have no reason to falsify the acceleration data. The only logical explanation is that the Euro versions have more power. The air temp was 8 deg cooler in the Euro test which will make a small difference but not to the magnitude that could explain the differences.


User avatar

LaFournier  9m ago @SpeedKing

Yes. true. Here is a Polish test of a 2020 RCF with the de-tuned 464 PS (448 HP) version of the RCF (non-TE) and they got 4.3 seconds 0-100 km/h on the VBOX

The RCF wasn't bad TBH, but the track edition which costed SO MUCH more, was no faster at all... which is so damn stupid.

hostboy  4m ago @LaFouriner

Why did you censor the word "suck?" That's not even a cuss word any more than "dang" is. Also the RC F Track Edition is not built for the straight line. It's like the Camaro SS 1LE. Btw, new Euro-spec RC F's are less powerful than older ones due to emissions.


User avatar

Jerome Fernandez  4d ago

Honestly Pdrive is not consistent sometimes a RCF can to 4.5 seconds and sometimes it does 5.01 seconds other channels like autotopnl could do it in 4.7 seconds
