Shoes and pads (Porterfield makes them)

Hey I know that somebody else has most likely asked but I myself like multiple threads to look at. New stuff comes up.
Any way I looked and looked for some performance shoes and pads for my focus. I found them at www.livermoreperformance.com , Porterfield makes them So if you you want racing or sport pads and shoes for your drum you can get them there.
I contacted livermore performance and POrterfield to verify and they both said they make shoes. CHeck it out.
I was looking for some shoes because I don't want a disk brake kit that I have to pay out the but for and need special pads for. Besides I'm moving to Idaho and I want to kepp my 15" rims for winter tires.

I looked at carbotecheng and I did not see anything for the focus. They may have new applications that I did not see. It is very easy to find performance pads, I was telling everyone mostly about performance shoes for the drums in the rear, they are hard to find.
Thanks for the input though.

ZTSBlack, Nice find! Porterfield has a good reputation. These are used a lot in rallying especially by lighter weight cars. The R4S is a true street performance pad and as such needs a little heat in them for optimal performance as well. Your first initial stop on a cold day could be a little thrilling, but thats true with most performance street pads. Once some heat is in them they work great.
