Fluid, pads, lines, ducting...in that order,IMHO. Yes, there are plenty of people who will come forth with the above realization in time...that's why you don't see any real race teams with the stock calipers.
For the street, the stock brakes are fine...and they are under maintenance/warrantee...which is cool, but for the track we will require some changes.

I plan on doing the lines/fluid/pads ASAP and then trying to fabricate someproper spindle ducts. If all that fails, then I'll need to go to better calipers.

Be good,
