Do it, especially if you track the car. I have HP Plus pads on my ST and that thing stops on a dime. The only downside is when they aren't hot they are LOUD as hell. Sounds like you are driving around and stopping on the metal backing plates.

Ask a few people that have been on the track with me. I've actually made people light headed from stopping so fast with these pads.

As for upgrades to the car though, I have to yank the transmission out of the ST and get the 3rd gear synchro replaced. I sorta kinda fried it the last track day of the year, high rpm shifts are now grindy. heheh So more then likely it's going to Terry Haines and getting fully rebuilt for the abuse I put it through on road courses.
