or stoptech street performance

etc

cant get any of these on the SVT brakes. You are stuck with stock, HPS, HP+, or $$$$ Ferodo DS2500/DS3000, none of these come close to any of the above in feel and operating temperature range (I have driven them all in street and performance setting)

Pete has me willing to trade down to "rally kit" front brakes. So if someone wants to go from rally kit to SVT front brakes, I would trade them.

I would only want to trade if your car has fresh bearings though, since mine are only a few months old
