In all seriousness, just get good disk pads (Hawk Carbon/Kevlar
Street compound as an example, or EBC Green stuff for the street),
replace your rear drums 'cause they are probably undersized, get good
brake shoes, adjust the rear brakes, and you will not need any of this

I run a standard, well adjusted setup with good materials and on the
track I can outbrake other spridgets with similar sorts of exotic mods.
I'm  talking of some of the meanest tracks on brakes too (1 mile straight,
40mph hairpin, some little esses followed by 3/4 mile straight and 40mph
esses then 50mph corner onto main straight again -- yes it is a dinky
track I know, but is the hardest on brakes)

By choosing the right compound, I don't ever have fade problems.

I used to run a cortina disk brake conversion, but I have removed it
and gone back to std brakes for both racetrack and special stage rallies.
