Yep, I agree with everything you wrote.  I'm not someone who can reliably
maintain threshold braking, so I rely on ABS to help me out.  When I got my
chip, I took a friend for a ride.  Did a 0-100-0 run, was able to activate the
ABS right away, with no problem.

I agree again. 

<Snip heat dispersion issues>

Again I agree.

I guess the point I can't get over is that if I'm able to achieve threshold
braking, or in my case, get the ABS to kick in at 100mph+, then the G60's are
doing their job.  

Now if I were on a track, and dumping a shit load of heat into the brakes, doing
multiple hard braking maneuvers one after another, the UFO's would be an
advantage, bit for general street driving, even for the situation where a deer
jumps out in front of me, the G60's do their job.  And are cheaper to
maintain/replace.  Right? Or am I still missing something?
