I have to agree with agracer. Buy top quality brake rotors and pads.
As you speed increases with skill this will become more important.
The good ones cost less than $100 each and will last a long time.
I prefer Hawk Blue front and rear. I have tried all of the Hawk pads and I keep going back to Blues.
That is just my personal preference.
I do run brake coolers but for many years I just had a hose tie wrapped to strut pointed at rotor.
I ran without coolers for a couple of years until I finally had brake fade.
My 944 is now 6-8 seconds faster than a Spec car with engine and wheel upgrades and I am still using stock brakes and Hawk blues with no issues.
