Re: Stock vs Cross Drilled or Slotted Brake Rotors

Racing isn't cheap. Even for what I spend, I'm not even close to the fastest in my class (PCA Group 3), upper/mid-pack and been racing at RA (on-off) for about 15 years.

You can still have a good time, it's really not about what you brought/how fast you went. But did you have fun?

Push yourself/vehicle to the limit, but know that limit and don't exceed it. Or you might end up with "Crash" as your nickname too.

Thanks for the advice. I'll go with slotted rotors and street--track pads.
The car is a good candidate I think because it's light--around 2800 pounds, has a flat torque output and responds easily to engine mods. The suspension comes from the Euro spec Focus----which was around 300HP I think. There's a turbo and intercooler kit out for it as well.
I'll try a few novice events and if I still think it's something I want to do----I'll leave the car here in storage and get another DD back home.
