Can you lock them up at 100 mph+? That's where the larger diameter/mass of
the UFO will come into play.  At 50 mph, I would guess there is no
difference. But, I would bet there is less fade at repeated 50 mph stops.
GIven a choice of my UFOs or G60's or anyother smaller diameter brake when
that deer jumps out in front of me at 80 mph, I'll go with the larger
diameter brakes.

Stopping it in MT with UFOs with about 90k on them and running true.
