UFO Brakes

We must remember that Audi developed the UFO setup to solve one problem: how
to increase swept rotor area within the confines of a 15-inch wheel.  They
were successful (17% more swept area, I believe), and there's no doubt that
a fully functional UFO setup stops the 200 20v more quickly than G60s.
That said, the track is a different environment.  UFOs were not developed
for track use; they increase unsprung weight substantially compared to G60s
and have cooling issues that would result in big problems on the track.  No
doubt the Big Red setup would be far superior to UFOs in a
track environment.
