yesterdays technology has nothing to do with it. the 930 brakes are still great brakes.

here is waht makes the difference:
brake pads
condition of the system
the foot applying the brakes

what scares me about mine is the PO put on cheap mentex pads. 3 or 4 stops from 100+ and they are gone. so if i hit the brakes once or twice i have to just slow down because i dont know if i will have brakes the next time.
they really feel like they glaze over.

my 77s stopped better than my 930. if i did not have my seat belt on i would slide forward out of the seat. they were also much quicker to grab. again, cheap pads on the 930.
