I run the Hawk HP+ on the street with DBA 4000 rotors, I do swap out the pads at the track. If you need new rotors put your money into better fronts, and use stocks on the rear. The DBA 4000 will last a long time and most likely never warp on the street. The pads are like tires, you need to find a set that works for you. The Ferodo DS2500 and the Hawk HP+ are two of the best street pads, IMO.

Here you go DBA Brake Packages (Hawks / Ferodo Pads) *** Swift Spring *** BC Coil Over Kit *** - NASIOC
I had a little over $700 with pads, rotors, SS lines and fluid. I did the 4000's on all 4 wheels.

It has worked for me fot the last two years. The is mainly a street car, but will see the track 2-3 times a year and few autoX just for fun. I only swap the pads for track days, I need a pad that will take the heat build up.

No joke i read somewhere on this other website about this kid drilling his own rotors to save money and he really thought that was going to work, he said it went almost a week and two of them cracked in half hahaha
