Are you planning full fluid change also?

Oh dude, you have no idea... Just wait till Pete gives you the "brakes pads that out last your rotors" lecture...

Carbotech™ 913 Kelated Metallic™

A D.O.T.-approved high-performance compound for brake shoes on high performance street vehicles and race cars. Carbotech Kelated Metallic (CKM) achieves a very high coefficient of friction (approx. 0.48 to 0.50) by taking advantage of a chemical reaction within the friction mass, which creates a tri-alloy metallic film at the liner/drum interface when subjected to heat and pressure. Designed to overcome the shortcomings of other liner materials, CKM is a very versatile and provides excellent braking performance in a wide variety of applications. Excellent wear characteristics and a very high resistance to lock-up under hard braking. Optimal recommended operating temperature range is from ambient to 750°F.
Here's the fluid he wants me to use. Seems pretty bad ass.

You may not understand how "passionate" Pete is about his brakes... He's even got Speedster thinking about a set.

If and when I decide to do the West Texas Open Road Race, I'll most assuredly be looking for upgraded brakes...

Until then, I'll have braided hoses coutesy of Pete, and I may put some better pads on...

But I'm not road racing the car so the brakes have lots of time to cool off after every use...
