I've got the steel brake lines and PFC-01 pads already.

I'm looking for a solution that doesn't eat brake pads at the rate I'm using them. I'm getting 10 to 12 30 minute sessions at Road America on a set of front pads. I'm getting to 150 3 places on the track.

Maybe some brake cooling would help with the pad wear.

It would also be very nice to be able to change the pads without taking the caliper off. When I had Brembo brakes on my E46 M3 I could change the pads in about 5 minutes per wheel even when they were hot.
