Which kit are you going to get? I'm guessing it's a tce kit, right? Oh please say it's the one with those huge cross drilled, zinc platted rotors!

Yeah I've heard nothing but good things about the tce kits. And damn, those rotors look so good. If I ever had and extra $1,300 I get that kit in a second.

Ohhhhhhhhh ok. What kind of rotors are you going to get? Can't you choose between slotted or drilled or both?

Im pretty sure that it is both. But the more i look at it, the more I am leaning towards the 13" X .81" Street Sport Kit, for $1195. That seems to be better and more of what im looking for.

Yeah I looked at the site and the rotors on the 13 x .81 street sport kit are freaking huge!!!!!! I don't think you could go wrong either way. It's just comes down to if you have the extra $200.

Whoa whoa whoa, back on up!

Okay, for starters, no cross drills, unless you're just interested in bling. Cross-drilled rotors are great for racing, when they just replace the rotors after each race anyway, but if you plan on using your rotors for more than one track day or canyon day, stay away from cross-drilled rotors. They WILL develop cracks radiating from the holes, and are not safe to drive at that point.

With that said, if I were to get a big brake kit, it would be TCE's Wilwood Plus 4 package, but with Ferodo DS2500 pads instead of the Wilwood/Hawk combo.

Yes, That is a good point. I knew not to get cross drilled rotors. Im going with just slotted. I always tell my friends never to get cross drilled for that same reason. Anyway, so the Hawks arent the way to go huh? I know your a big fan of the Ferodo's. Cool I will keep that in mind when i go to order. Thanx Ivan

I've heard mixed reactions to Hawks, haven't heard much about Wilwood pads, but damn, I love me some Ferodo DS2500.
