Royal Flush: 2008 Lexus IS 350

Usaha rolls with the itsjdmyo! Crew and has attended many sport compact events. He’s walked away with top hardware including Best VIP at Spocom 2011, the Nisei Showoff 2011 and Motion Autoshow, just to name a few. Usaha told us that this isn’t his first IS 350. The original met its demise after rolling three times in an accident. After walking away from the crash, Usaha chose to focus his efforts into style rather than performance. Given the clean and classy looks of his IS 350, we think he succeeded. And we know that looking good is safer than going fast.
