Default Time for some new brakes all the way around. Looking for suggestions

The brakes on my car (98 T/A) are pretty terrible. Pretty sure the front rotors are warped too. I'd like to upgrade the front and rear without breaking the bank. The car isn't driven very often. Also, I'll be drag racing it quite often. I've searched a lot but most posts I come across are 5-10 years old. I'd like to buy some that are lighter too considering I'm about to put the car on a diet but I don't think a lightweight kit would be in my $250-$350 budget. Any suggestions? Thanks

Autozone Duralast Gold Rotors and Gold pads work great on all of my vehicles. Cant beat the price either!

Hawk HPS pads with Centric Cryo-Treated rotors (from Tirerack). I used to have issues with warped rotors all the time. Never again after that combo. The rotors have enamel on the non-swept areas, so they won't rust, and they are hard enough to hold up to the pads. You won't shed any weight though.
