UFO brakes/track

  I used to track my 200 with UFO brakes. Larry @ Carbotech made up
track pads for me using old backing plates. The brakes worked very well.
The only trick was to bring them up to heat slowly (over a lap or two).
If I did that, no warping and pedal feel remained pretty solid. Used
super blue.
Given technology, I might opt for something lighter that stops as well.
I currently have Wildwood calipers and MB V12 vented rotors. These are
at least as good as the UFO's and rotors and pad availability are both
cheap and plentiful.
Email me privately if you want more info.

I realize that this is old news for some you...I'm debating whether or
to upgrade from UFO brakes to S4/S6 struts and  993TT calipers and
The vehicle will primarily be used as a track car.  For those of you
have tracked UFO equipped vehicles, is the caliper/rotor combination up
the task? I understand that UFO rotors a costly, but that's still less
expensive than new struts, Big Reds, Rotors and pads.  As for pads,
Carbotech, www.ctbrakes.com still provides them for the 200.
