Slotted rotors, with some greenstuff pads.

If you wanna go really hardcore though, then an AP Racing upgrade kit. Think they have 4 pot calipers with 335mm rotors?

DBA are the ones most people use, EBC Green Stuff pads are supposed to be good.

You can get this stuff from most auto shops, Repco, s**t ect.
