What you also get is a larger pad area; that means longer pad life, lower pad temps, or the ability to use a milder pad with the same results. While I do not recommend it, we had one of our track junkie customers use his street pads in the Alcon setup for a track weekend... he noted a little less "bite" than the track pads, but they held up perfectly fine.
Rob, dont the alcon's use the thinner 16mm pads though, vs if you have the wilwood 4 piston fronts which are 20mm? And I think the wilwood pads are cheaper. I absolutly love my wilwood kit and cant wait to get the matching rears.

And on a different note, Rob how about you shed some more light on the new 2 piece rotors you have coming out?
