I dont know what pads are included with them, but upgrade the pads to a track use pad, have not researched that yet. I have looked at the Vorshlag rear GT500 upgrade and am considering that. Same with ducting, Vorshalg has the backing plates. I have a ton of used 3" ducting hose from my past race cars.
I am not familiar with the Baer GT brakes you mention. I assume they will fit your car without serious modification.

Not sure you would need to upgrade back brakes to begin with. Most of the braking is done by the front in my opinion.

I just installed my Vorshlag backing plates and removed the Carbotech XP-12 compound track pads and installed Carbotech 1521 street compound on centric rotors. The track pads don't have much left. Maybe 2 to 3 mm before the wear groove disappears. I probably wore them out on the street since I only did 2 or 3 track days on them and still learning. New pads had 9 mm thick pads and no wear grooves. I plan to install the front inlet plates and ducting this weekend.

I am sticking to Carbotech compounds. You can use the same rotors with different carbotech compounds. Carbotech Performance Brakes

I have a friend that is going to experiment with the Raybestos compounds. ST45 or ST47 compounds. Apparently Nascar uses ST47. Raybestos Racing Pads - Raybestos Brakes
