just wondering if its worth getting the DBA 4000 slotted rotors instead of the Street series slotted rotors as far as performance. im pretty sure its not but thought id check

plus anybody have any idea how much extra the 4000s cost ?

They're a higher quality rotor, able to take some more punishment over the street series.

On a BA with their somewhat undersized brakes I'd recommend you go for them. Just get the slotted, don't get cross drilled.

FWIW I run the DBA5000's on the front of my GT-P, and DBA4000's on the back*.

Recommend them. They outlast and work better than even the factory Brembo gear. And at Ford Spares prices are half the price too.

*there's no 5000 option for the rear

Ultimates are pretty harsh on rotors. I wouldn't use them.

I'm out of date on pads for street use, I use Ferrodo DS2500 they're a street/track pad. squeal a bit when cold, but won't give up on track.
