A thing to think about is the Hubs, for street, auto-x, and drag racing its not an issue but if doing track days you will want to look at better machined hubs. I have had two of the cast hubs fail on me. I bought Super Hubs through a group buy and had no issue what so ever at my last event.

Only upgrade beyond SVT would be to the TCE or Wiliwood two piece rotor and your doing that not so much for the power to stop but to avoid putting heat into the bearing.

I think if you get HPS pads, SVT rotors, with SS lines you will be happy with the bite it provides. Only thing I am thinking of doing on my set up is to get come ducting routed. I have a fancy front bumper that I can make some custom scoops for.

Control arms are great. Easy to work on, lots of adjustment since I also have camber plates up top.
For install check out my Tick build thread in the bottom. Have to copy the link and paste it in to the browser. For some reason FF does not let you have hyperlinks in your signature. (i didi it for you http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...ferrerid=62897 )
Thanks for all the info man. SS lines im wondering, do you just run the SVT ones or the zx3 stock ones? heat wont be an issue for the most part track days are far ahead of me.

I have a lot more to go through before its even considered, that being said I would enjoy better braking with spirited driving. So I will just run the SVT setup until heat becomes the issue. Saved me over a grand here thank you haha.

Definitely going to look into the tubular control arms as well.
