brakes are really nice, they have done test on them in magazines and stuff, they definitly help with the breaking. brembo is hands down the best brake company for a car. every race car that i have seen, CART, F1, touring, they all have brembo brakes. ferrari actually uses brembo on all of their cars coming out of the factory and even their F1 car that won last years world championship. so brembo is probably the best brake application on the market, but they cost a lot of money.
