Ok, I just got this Lexus SC300 6 days ago. It never started or turned over. I replaced the battery with a Lexus approved one.I replaced the starter after getting a brand new one tested and it passed. Replaced and checked all fuses and relays that are associated to starting. checked and confirmed the neutral safety switch is working. I started the engine from the starter, just real fast only. Help me identify the issue please.

Car accelerates as if the Brakes is not coming together like their rubbing, smoke coming from New brake Pads,old brake pads scratch up rotors,everytime car drive for twenty mins car gives a hard time while driving

battery good starter good, ignition come on and works,
