Hello, I'm looking into weight reduction and I'm trying to figure out the weight of the trunk and hood. I plan on replacing both however I've heard from one source that their 2000 IS has a 40 pound hood, another said mine is 80lb. Its a full steel hood so I'm hoping it's heavier than 40 pounds. Thanks.
I’m debating adding a carbon fiber hood and trunk to my gs300. Possibly more if it really works. However after a bit of digging I’ve seen a mixed basket of opinions. Some saying their carbon fiber was heavier, not lighter and others saying it’s great. I’m not planning on everything becoming carbon fiber but like as I said above hood and trunk just to start. Do any of you have trusted brands you know work? Or sellers on eBay? Thanks!

Started with Transmission Codes after a dealer CSP of carbon cleaning. These two incidents could be completely unrelated. But then again there is evidence of other users with similar instances.
Initial problems was Torque Converter Problem / VSC which transformed into my car getting stuck in 3rd gear and not going to the higher gears. RPM will be very high. This might be called a limp or safe mode to allow the car to drive. Codes P2757 and P0761
After much reading . I changed TCC and SLU solenoids along with a ATF filter and fluid change. Enough to get the color to change from black to something more red. Parts 35210-50010 (SL1/TCC) and 3528030050 (SLU)
After the replacement car shifted smoother and the Torque converter code went away. But still not going out of 3rd sometimes. Code changed to
P2714 and P0761 Solenoid C stuck off
Iv checked the resistance of each solenoid and it was within the literature value of a certain Manuel or about 0.2 Ohms higher than high operating value. I thought this was ok? As the new part I got for the TCC was also 0.2 higher. I also used techstream to command each solenoid to perform. In most cases I can hear a faint sound when each is activated. Wish it has the pressure value of each solenoid ( I couldn’t find it on my version of TS)
The only other steps outside of a new transmission would be ( none of which were said to be a definitive solution)
Change transmission wire? ( how would one check this to know if its ok?)
Replace Solenoid C 3524050030
Replace SLT 3529034010
Update Calibrations for transmission ( My dealer will not offer this said it won’t do anything)
Does anyone have experience with these issues or have a solution?
So im just wondering if im seeing this right .....i have been bitten by the apparent lexus goblin ....no response from gas pedal until the very bottom and search google found this cool site and posts from as far back as 2011 i believe and although i may have missed it NO SOLUTION....plenty of remedys and band aids but no real fix and lexus has been having these same problems with their cars from 98 to i think i saw someone post about a 2011 with the problem ...and still no solutions ...really? Or did i just miss them lol
