Nice. Was looking at the goodridge lines myself and slotted rotors are a must for track work I reckon.

Fellow Rotor fans gather now for our daily prayer.....

As I lay rubber down the street,
I pray for traction I can keep,
But if I spin and start to slide,
Please dear god protect my sweet ride.

Amen

Those discs are just the fronts. The rears are in transit & due this week.
Also in transit are new BHR engine mounts as I have a cracked OEM mount

All in & performing well.
The Goodridge braided lines all fitted without any problems, the DBA rotors look good & the pads feel to have a bit extra over my old OEM's. Having said that I was down to 1mm of pad on worn discs.
Now all I need is a good drive to test them out, but it's raining :(

Pads make much noise Paul?

No noise at all so far, but I've only really been to work & back, although that does entail some freeway driving.
The pads seem well suited to the discs.
