Glen the problem here is that I can do 0 to 80 to 0 all day long and have 
NO fade, Can't do that with the MM on a 5KQ.  I also have never had a 
problem with the dust attacking my wheels, and for me and pretty much 
anyone that has driven a car with CC's the dust and squealing are a small 
price to pay for the incredible increase in braking performance.... Which 
also to me equate's into a saftey factor.  One other thing that your not 
taking into account is that I can stop in less distance with CC's than 
with the MM's, Seems to me that should be the deciding factor, Safety not
