Bill I'm going to assume your looking to prep your car for tracktime.....If this is the case the Euro rotors with fresh brake fluid(ATE is fine) will be a good start. You might also want to consider a brake cooling kit for added insurance. With this kit you can run all day on your choice of pads with no fade.....Check out beat the crap out of my brakes with this kit on at NHIS and never had a problem. I was running Porterfield R4S pads also.

Forget about the slotted, or cross drilled rotors they take surface area away from the rotor and decrease the swept area ala.....less stopping power.
If you properly seat your pads and rotors you should not have a problem with 'Green fade" which the slotted rotors protect against.
My concern with the front brakes is heat and there are only two ways to dissipate heat....larger rotors(expensive!) or brake cooling....
Good luck,

: Do you recommend the Euro rotors or the cross drilled/slotteds?
: can you tell the diff with SS lines? Best place to get them?
: How much total brake fluid do we need? ATE super blue?
: Thanks!
