Default to buy or not to buy new rotors?

I am placing an order here soon for some SS lines, track pads, and fluid. I was thinking of ordering new rotors while I was at it, but mine aren't cracked, and aren't warped at all. They have built up a little bit of a lip around the edges though. Should I wait till I crack and or warp them to replace them? It would be nice to be able to use the $450 elsewhere like a autopower roll bar or a set of rims. Like I said these will be used on the track, so maybe I should just run them fora few days them replace them after they get worn a bit

let me know what you think
thanks

if i were to do it all over again, i'd buy the cheapest blanks (napa?) available and use the savings towards fluid/lines/pads/tires.

get in touch with ken @ wrxbrakes.

Go to autobone and buy some cheap duralast rotors. You will not be disappointed.

^^^ + 1

I've used a set of the duralast rotors (cost about $135 for all 4 rotors, don't know about the price for an STi) at a trackday using XP10s and they held up fine. Now I'm using them on the street with a set of HPS and still going strong.

Where did you guys find these? I just called my local autozone and the guy said that they aren't listed and I'm not having any luck finding them online...
