I hope you spoke to Ian Godney as he does a complete kit of all the above stuff you list for just £700. The CL pads will suit your track work see the photo:

Only thing is I don't need braided hoses as already got a set of tarox braided hoses!

Would those pads be okay for the ring though ?
Has he got a post on here that I could comment on or contact him directly ?

If you were a full member you would be able to PM him

Also not being funny for that package price you could afford to sell on a set of brake lines

The CL pads are more suited to track/competition than road, you may need ceratec paste to stop the squealing if you dont hammer them to be honest. As been said before you cannot get brakes that do it ALL! Or Suspension, or tyres, etc. Everything is compromise.

I have the PF pads - excellent for road and a few short track sessions.

Just phone Ian Godney otherwise - contact on his website. He does actually compete using his stuff so you know he is genuine.
