Big time over kill on a VTR/VTS!

I would just get proper uprated pads like Mintex 1144's or Ferrodo Ds2500, braided caliper lines and new fluid.

The huge extra weight from the discs and calipers makes the car under steer more in the corners, slower due to extra rotational mass and you feel every bump in the road ever more sooo
