If you plan on driving very hard on the brakes you should have the brake and clutch fluid flushed so you know you have fresh stuff in there unless you KNOW it has been done in the past 12 months. Take a look at the reservoir. If the fluid looks dark and thick it's probably way past due. Be careful trying "exotic" racing type stuff for the street. Some of the pads have nasty wet weather habits, some won't work well till they get heated up. Others will chew up the rotors. Unless you are tracking the car it probably isn't worth it. On the track you can use up a set of pads in one hard day. Tires too.
