Default What to buy next?

I've got some money and I feel the urge to spend it. Each choice is good, but I must choose one.

1.) G-Tech Pro Competition -- get a decent idea of what I'm pushing for hp and just a bunch of other cool information
2.) Slotted and drilled rotors -- reduce fade and decrease stopping distance of course
3.) Nitto tires -- grip the road like a mother and actually be able to take turns at a decent speed

Tires are always going to be the biggest single improvement you can do for a car so I would go with those.

You can always go to the drag strip to get an idea of what kind of numbers you are running.

Big brakes are nice but its the tires that stop your car in the end not the brakes. The brakes just stop the wheel.

Personally, I'd get some black or gold SS stripes BTW, they look SO GOOD!!

Anyway, back to the subject, I'd get the brakes since I have new tires and I just painted my calipers red. The rotors would compliment them well But that'* just me.

I would say G-Tech Pro. Would be the most valuable tool and gives you all the data you need to make your car faster without actually having to bolt on more parts.

I gotta go with the Nitto'*, but then again, I do have kind of a tire fetish. :P
