BBK's are useless unless you're doing primarily track racing. A lot of your braking is in the tires.
if i do order a stage 2 kit,
is it hard to a DYI?
and what's the difference between slotted and drilled?
I'm with Nick on the BBK. If you can lock up the wheels and have anti-lock kick in, BBK won't make more braking force, just less pedal travel. Better grip in the tires is key. When you have enough grip, you might not be able to lock up the wheels ..... this is where the BBK works.
Drilled rotors have holes in them. The holes were originally to relieve gases released by the brake pads a while ago. New pads don't make that gas cushion. Brembo blanks are also less prone to warpage due to the holes being cast into the metal prior to finish machining. The holes allow the rotors to cool faster because inertia forces the air out of the vents in the edge of the rotor causing fresh air to be sucked into the holes.
Slotted rotors have slots machined into the braking surface. The slots scrape the surface of the pads to reduce glazing and get a better bite when braking. Slots will show better performance than drilled at the cost of some noise.
