Re: ef XR6 Brakes
Get yourself a set of DBA slotted rotors for the front. Don't bother with crossdrilled as there is no real cost/benefit even up to heavy street use.
Get a set of Bendix Ultimate pads and stick them on the front.
Have done this on an AU1 XR, current ED XR, XEs, XFs, XBs incl GT etc...
(I have been advised that the AU1 XR pads are actually Ultimates - the slotted rotors made a HUGE difference).
It's the only way to go - the brakes become fabulous !.
BTW - you should also have the rear discs machined and stick Ultimates there at least.

Muzza: a XR8 AU seriesIII...bog standard :)
