I am posting to ask for some advice.

I have about $750 to upgrade the brakes on my EF Futura.

What do you thing is my best option for the best braking performance?

Any suggestions will be appreciated.
Chris.

Location: Hobart
TAS, Australia

Braided brake lines - 280
Slotted rotors for the front - $260 for both, probably not as necessary on the rear
And those Green Stuff brake pads (I run Bendix Ultimate or something like that which are $180 retail, but that couse there cheap through work, people here seem to rate the Green ones though) - think there about $120 a pair, need front and back.
That should get you pulling up a bit better.

For $800 I got new DBA slotted all round with Bendix ultimates and new wheel bearings all round. That price included fitting.

The difference between that and standard is outstanding.

The choices as the guys said.

You can get everything you need or even fitted @ Crescent Motorsports in Liverpool from Joe.

Alternatively you can wait 2 weeks and spend $1500 and get braided lines, and twinpot calipers up front which would make a big diff.

Otherwise RDA Slotteds with EBC Green stuff will get you stopping as well.
