Your setup will rock the track. I only had RS brakes, ss lines, 50$ lordco pads and FORD Dot4 in my rally car and I could ride those brakes all day long down the sides of mountains - for 1000s of KM.

Anyway, make them fade. Boil the fluid. Left foot brake the crap out of them. Then you don't have to speculate about what happens when. You'll know.
andys, I have worn my rotors to the point of needing replacement after 18,000km of daily driving, spirited driving, and auto-x events. Nowhere did I say that I "toasted" them. I said "I might need to change these soon", from all the heat abuse they have taken from my driving style
