    interested in hearing anybody who has gone to more aggressive compounds. after 6months of x ownership i'm getting more comfortable with the pedal on the right and wish a little more initial bite and higher friction coef from the pedal on the left.

    The calipers are off the shelf Brembos that are used on a multitude of performance cars. There is a vast selection of brake pads that will fit.
