So have you decided which kit? Oh yeah and in the plus 4 kit you don't have an option of cross drilled. Oh well I guess your stuck with those massive, zinc platted, gas slotted beauties. Oh well. :p

Werd. Plus, with the Ferodos, you could always make things interesting at the track by slapping in some DS3000 (track-only) for one or both axles.

Dang those are some pricey pads. But if you say they are worth it.

What kind of driving do you do? Unless it involves the track and repeated 90-x stops, you'll prolly notice no improvement. Now, invest in some stainless lines and new fluid, and you'll probably be mint. Ask Ivan.

I'm personally sticking with non-BBK upgrades (not just because i run 15s). I do some track days, and lots of hardcore driving....but still think a BBK will offer little improvement over simple line/fluid/rotor/pad/bushing upgrades.

If you get the right set up with the right parts, you can save a lot of money while still getting a lot of improvement. Not to mention, the weight distribution will be better for acceleration with the stock sized brakes.

From what I've read, slotted rotors perform better by "scraping" the glazing off the pads and as a result will wear your pads out much quicker.

no they let the gasses vent under hard driving, making it cooler and less prone to fade

They do both, actually. I don't know how much more pad wear you'll get, as I've never used slotted rotors. No fade yet with my Ferodo DS2500+ATE Super Blue+Ireland Stainless Steel Lines combo, so I don't see what all the fuss is about.
