Big Brakes

As far as I go the stock brakes on most ares are suficent to stop the car in 
daily driving.  Using the stock brakes, adding stainless steel lines, top of 
the line pads, and vented rotors.  Put in some additional cooling ducts and 
make sure the bias is perfect.  With this the stock   dia. brakes should be 
more than capable of providing all the heat transfer you could want. You say 
a larger rotor is a bigger heat sink.  Ok it is.  Compair a 12" rotor to a 
11" rotor.  Do you relize how little material you are adding?

Unless your doing top speed runs or have much much much muchmore hp than you 
had stock there is little reason aside from show to add larger brakes.
