Brakes unable to stop runaway Lexus in California?
So slamming on the brakes enough to cause tires to catch fire still can't stop the car? That's scary! "In a 911 call, one of the passengers said the Lexus was speeding at 120 m.p.h., and witnesses said the cars tires were on fire when it crashed possibly from the driver slamming on the brakes." http://www.f... 4 Oct 2009 17:47
Only US Toyota/Lexus have runaway problems? Design problem?
"The problem does not affect any UK Toyota models." Why are only US market Toyota/Lexus vehicles being recalled? What design is unique to the US market that's not there in, say, in UK or Japanese domestic production? http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/top-stories/2009/09/30/toyota-in-massive-recall-of-runaway-cars-11... 3 Oct 2009 03:30

Iridium spark plugs are no better than OEM
About a week before installing them I was watching some hot rod tv show where they were testing OEM vs, Iridium spark plugs in a performance engine with various lab test equipment. The results showed not only a 4 horsepower gain (in a 350hp engine though), but also a very slight (.07%) in... 27 Sep 2009 21:16
Performance Brake Pads and Rotors for 2001 4Runner
The rotors on my 4Runner need to be replaced because when they heat up they warp and the brakes chatter. This occurs only when driving in the mountains where there's more harder braking than in city driving. The original rotors have been resurfaced once. and that's about it for them. Are there any higher perfo... 24 Sep 2009 12:47
