On our race car I found the fronts to lock up due to the tire size difference, Hoosier r6 255 fronts & 315 rears. One compensation you can make is to use a more aggressive rear pad vs the front. Or, and more costly is to add a dual m/c setup.
My first suggestion would be to go do at least a couple of PCA D.E.s so you get a feel of how the car handles under braking at high speeds.
Or, find a long straight 4 lane road with little traffic and try some high speed panic stops to see if & what locks up, does it track straight etc.
In a panic stop most folks don't have the presence of mind to modulate the braking based on what the car is doing.
