Also, quick note, yes, I know we are not doing a car to car comparison. IF
the stock G60's are capable of locking
up Miss Piggy for ONE stop, than the extra pad performance will work for
decent performance (for a stop or two).
They just won't be able to keep up that activity for very long. (brake)
Torque is torque, whether derived by greater
frictional coefficient, greater clamping force (not happening here), or
greater rotor diameter (also not happening
in the spirit of this thread) giving greater mechanical advantage.
