Looking forward to this. I'm not finding too much literature on those brakes, but why exactly the saw-blade style? Aesthetics? Potential cooling advantages? Can you elaborate?

Wp offers awesome weight packages due to their designs. The saw blade rotor cools much quicker the the regular style rotor. Here is some images after testing that was shared with us from WP.

brakes were used for approximately 30-35mins on some spirited driving, we pulled the car in and its initial temperature on the rotor surface is 85C/185F, we took measurement every 5 minutes and 20minutes later it had cooled down to 32C/95F which is cooled enough to touch with bare hands.

Car looks great. I have to ask, how much of an increase in pad contact is the BBK vs stock. Seems like the pads look smaller than oem.

The contact patch is 170x45mm on front pads for bbk. I don't have exact rear dimensions at this time.
