Not enough representation from the early guys on this. If kept as a street car, the s aluminum brakes are just fine. I have cooked them only once on the street and I was really trying hard to find the fade point. I moved to the larger turbo brakes because my car saw the occasional track/DE and i was planning on putting 18s with wider rubber. I've since decided to keep it off the track and stick with the 16 in fuchs. Been toying lately on switching back because I miss having more brake modulation with the smaller M/C. The upgraded M/C is a hair stiff and I'm getting lazy with the bigger clamps not having to watch the heat on the track. Regardless, the early cars are awesome drivers and you don't see too many of them. I must admit though I've never driven a 3.3, but I bet I'll be biased either way.
