I was considering EBC blanks and hawk pads, but I may opt for a removeable subwoofer and amp setup instead... time will tell...

In the long run, im saving up for the almighty mtx swap with LSD im so tired of doing 1-wheel burnouts out of every corner...

SM aint so bad, i dunno why people talk down to me so much "oh whatd you do to get in SM??" ...its not always about horsepower... and autox'ers should know this more than anyone!!

Full front-end rebuild (Cervini hood, Euro fenders, '02 Facelift/ST170 bumper), rear '02 Facelift/ST170 bumper and reverse lights and a complete respray courtsey of my future father-in-law in John Deere "blitz black" semi-matte black paint. Although that'll be more like March-April...

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.

new tires (bridgestone g009 on stock 16's), energy suspension full black poly kit, svt suspension upgrade, svt brake upgrade, new hawk HPS pads all around.

took me two weeks cause frpp shortchanged me front hubs and rear spindles for a week. oh and that front sway bar is a bitch to mess around with. and always rtfm FIRST!

oh, and no one in my city sells 31 mm sockets. 1 1/4 is pretty close.

klondike, you should get the rota slipstreams in 16" they are a nice lightweight choice!
