[V8] UFO brakes

I need to perform the Italian brake tune-up on mine.  In
general, what do any of you do when you perform this

Also, I have the cheapo pads from Advance Auto.  I have a
very slight problem with warpage, but I don't recall that
from before with the stock pads that were installed by the
dealer back before I bought the car.  Would pad choice
affect the likelihood of warpage in any way?

Lastly, I am considering signing up for the Audi Club event
at 2nd Creek in Denver next month.  I feel that I should do
something about my brakes first though.  They'll be fine
or many more street miles, but they may not be quite
confidence inspriing for a track event.

I was thinking I would get some better pads, like Mintex
Red Box (I believe the rears are due for at least pads as
well) and I thought it might be a good time to replace the
brake lines all around.  I thought I would just go with
stock rubber lines and save the stainless steel braided
ones for a later performance upgrade, if I choose to do

What do y'all think?
