Thanks, Ian, thats what I was afraid of.  Any particular pads that are
recommended?  Also, what options do I have with the rotors?  I notice that
Stratmosphere has a Stoptech kit for the fronts which include rotors and
calipers, but I'm not too keen on spending $2,000 just for a few track

Thanks again,
