Curious, how have the fronts been? I recently realized the rear calipers on the Coupes were a brembo motorsports spec. They're actually quite superior to the stock fronts. If anything, It's our rear pads and rotors that would benefit from upgrades.

Also, given the GC's weight distribution, I would think just doing the fronts with the brembo GTS setup would work pretty well. Really interested in your opinions pro and con.

Thanks for you advice.
Hey, no problem, what else are boards for? As to the wilwoods, honestly I hear way too much negative stuff about them. It seems that half the people love them and half hate them. And for multiple reasons. Not the least of which being their proprietary pad shapes which limits how many manufacturers make pads that fit. They seem well made and I can attest that they are very light. Lighter than the stoptechs definitely. They also don't offer floating rotors in the GC kits, which sucks. On the style side, while their designs are pretty humdrum, they do offer custom near-pantone range colors for the calipers.
