This was actually my plan. Brake fluid, pads, and take-off rotors are relatively inexpensive. Four track events should cost me 2 sets of front pads, 2 sets of front rotors, 1 set of rear pads, 1 set of rear rotors, and if I change my fluid each time, 4 quarts of fluid. My cost for brake consumables here is around $600, and some of my time to do the work.

On the other hand, a big brake kit front and back is $5000. A set of front Racing Brake 2 piece rotors is $1000. And I'm assuming I'll still be going through pads/fluid like before. Maybe the rotors will last longer, but warping a $500 rotor is the same as if I warped TEN $50 rotors.
