I noticed the IS-F leave the line with a ton of wheel spin so I find it incredibly hard to believe it was set in some mode that handicapped it powerwise. If you're trying to tell me that a professional race car driver couldn't maximize acceleration (in an automatic equipped car) in a half mile race, you're making some pretty desperate sounding excuses to defend the Lexus. Even with a 3 car head start, the IS-F got owned. Deal with it. Plenty of other videos on youtube show the M3 slightly ahead or the two cars dead even so it's not just this single case.
