Upgraded suspension, brakes and superchargers do not make your Lexus a better or faster race car. Remember your stock parts were significantly inferior(performance wise) to stock M5 parts. The German press was absolutely in awe over the performance of a stock M5 around the Nurburgring circuit. In fact it's lap times were consistent with the Ferrari 355 and very close to the 911 twin turbo. I would lay my next years salary that your modified SC400 would'nt stand a chance against the M5 on the Nurburgring.
