    Looks to be about 130ish? Not bad. I've only hit 135 myself, but our roads look like this:



    No highway runs yet.

    You drive very fast. I just got a ticket for 85 in a 60, but they'd take your car if they caught you going that fast.

    OK,

    Here's the deal. The road goes to limited access in front of me, I'm just leaving town in the pic. As you can see there are NO CARS in front of me in sight.

    I easily cruise at 120 here every week. You can barely make out the concrete barrier on the left.

    I cracked a GPS verified 145mph on my way through South Dakota 2 weeks ago. (need better brakes to feel good about it though). The car was solid on the road and still accelerating (although slowly) but there was a rough looking bridge coming up.

    EXCELLENT POINT.

    I am upgrading to Endless NA-S pads and slotted rotors THIS w/e.

    I am scoping the perrin/wilwood 4 pot kit with slotted rotors.
    I cooked a set of brakes on my old WRX back home - not a fun experience ( a cracked rotor after it cooled ).

    DBA (Disc Brakes Australia is my #1 choice)

    Just remember, slotted only NOT CROSS DRILLED.

    I want to keep my stock wheels - limits my choices. But Steve from DBA is a good bloke.
    Yeah - you are right on the slotted front - cross-drilled crack very quickly (been there too!!)

    Well, I just installed the cross-drilled SPOs, so we'll see. They appear to be cast that way to begin with. In the interests of science, I'll keep you posted how well they hold up.
    Old, but not slow.
