Well coming home from a club, this lexus was following me and we were on a street with no one else on that street then he plus alongside of me and guns it so I reacted really quick downshifted to 2nd and brought it to the rev limiter then shifted to 3rd. Raced up to 90 miles a hour and i had abt 2 car leads. he gave up.

Are gs300 fast or no?

What year, they are not quick, much faster at speed (80mph+) but will get raped by any Type-S TL or CL, good kill!

I read somewhere that the GS4 does 1-130 in about 24~25 seconds while the TLS does it in like mid-30s!:eek: :eek: :eek:

To give perspective I think 0-100 is about 15 seconds for the GS4 and 16 for the TLS! Somewhat close in the beginning but the GS4 is gone after 100!

of course, there is a reason for the extra two cylinder. the 0-60 for the gs4 is around high 5, which is very fast already. but at high end (80+) it's a beast. it just pulls

if you are sure the driver was really trying to race you, then good kill, otherwise i am sure he was just playing with ya, coz' there is no way gs400 or gs430 can loose to tls in any circumstances.

i own both the tls and the gs400, and i know it very well. i have intake on my tls and it's no match with the gs400. i am a pretty ok driver and my gf doesn't really know how to race, but i just asked her to floor the gs4, and no surprise she took my tls

and i even believe that a tls with header / intake / exhuast (if you just compare the car) is no match with a gs4. you do catch up with the hp, but the gs4 has just way too much torque for you to catch up with. when i really floor the gs4 i am pushed into the seat starting from the very beginning

even a TL-P can handle the GS without problem...

it's heavier, power loss from RWD, and half a sec slower...

me too!!!

I’ll add my kill story here, cause it’s the same type of car…

There is this guy w/ a gs300 that tools around my hood. I assume that he lives or works nearby because I see him a lot. I’m sure that I see a lot of other people repeatedly also; but this guy sticks out like a sore thumb (at least to me). He’s got the gs400 badges (I hope he bought them—rather than the ole-“five-finger” style) the wing, and, recently, his car has gotten lower (I think he either got some crappy springs or he cut them, cause it is kinda bouncy on the highway; btw, do not cut your springs—people will make fun of you). He also chromed his gs300 wheels. Overall, not a bad looking car…

Only one problem, he has a nasty habit of gunning it at every stoplight from the right side of the street to get around the other cars waiting at the light (even the “right turn only” lane). Mind you, he don’t got the speed to be doing this all the time. I have a souped up AccordEX (okay, you can stop laughing now). It is stock looking except for being lowered and having a different (not giant/coffee can style) exhaust tip. Besides the various suspension and brake mods, I’ve done a substantial amount of work on the engine. I would say it was the proverbial “sleeper”.

Here is my kill story… I can easily take him at a light but I’m not always at the line. When I am at the front, I would spank him till about 40mph and then I would drop off cause there are a lot of cops around here. In that short distance I could usually get about a half car length to a car length ahead but I usually back off (tickets scare me), meanwhile he usually continues down the right side of the street and after I’ve backed off a bit, he gets in front and speeds away (if this karma thing works, he must have a lot of tickets, cause he used to do this every time I see him). The right side thing is not that hard to do around here cause the streets are wide and people rarely park on the bigger streets.

One fortuitous day, I caught him in West Hollywood on Beverly Blvd with a car load of girlies (life is so unfair sometimes)! Beverly has a lot of parked cars and you’ve got to have a damn fast car to drive the way he does. Well, when I saw him I purposely got in the slow lane, knowing that he would do the right side thing… not only could I beat him normally, his car had a bunch of people in it and maybe luggage! I pretty much toyed with him at every stop light we hit (there are a lot on this street)… he couldn’t get past me and he found himself braking hard to avoid hitting parked cars and then he had to drop behind me! He must have been pretty frustrated cause he gave me the “special” finger a few times. hehe… He even managed to get himself at the line with me, in a real lane, at a couple lights, but the spanking continued for a while. I eventually got caught behind people at a light and he ended the fun temporarily by doing that right side thing again! I was going to visit a friend but I was on a mission… by the time he lost me, we were in the Westwood/UCLA area on Wilshire Ave. I had a feeling he was headed for the 405frwy and home (and I knew where that was! My area!). I jumped on the 405 and headed home. The traffic was heavy (normal for this frwy) and I didn’t have to do much to catch up! The girlies in the car didn’t look too happy to see me again… and I think that the guy eventually thought I was gonna follow him home or something cause when the car pool (HOV) lane opened up (just past the 101) he punched it way over 100mph and I was right behind him he actually started to pull away a little (2.2 liter 4banger no match for V6) but traffic was not kind to him. Actually, I’m not sure what I was planning to do or why I was following him (maybe I went temporarily insane). I guess he assumed that he wouldn’t be able to loose me cause he actually started driving semi-normally! When he got off in Northridge (that’s my hood, in Earthquake country) he tried the right side thing once but dropped behind, when I didn’t slow down this time… turns out his threshold for speeding was not much greater than mine. He dropped off before 70mph… At the next light he didn’t do the right side thing! He got in the left lane and looked straight ahead as where the girlies. When he glanced over, I gave him the thumbs up (mainly cause I didn’t know what else to do). I was actually tired I was playing this really stupid game with a stranger for half an hour! I guess I was being stupid... he could have had a gun… or, he could have been much bigger than me and got out and kicked my ass… he could have had his girlies mud wrestle me (okay, that would have been a good thing :) )… I guess there is no climax to this story… It ended as uneventfully as it started…

Now when I see him… He still does the same thing! (I guess it is kinda foolish and big-headed of me to think that our encounter could have any effect on his driving) Oh well…

I hope you enjoyed.

Moral: If you wanna race in a GS, get the 400… and, don’t be a dick (like him, or me… it is a waste of time… and its dangerous)

Damn, that was a long post… I have to go rest now…

What the hell is power loss from RWD. A tl-P and GS 300 are almost even. Depends on the jump. Low speed I give the TL a slight advantage, higher speeds, the GS 3.

Watch out for unbadged GSs;)

i wouldn't mess with a gs400. Cuz onetime we raced in our m3 and went up to 140mph and that thing was still going and our speed limiter held us actually at 138mph but speedometer showed 140mph. I guess he won.
