Don’t know if it was due to supply issues. The 10 puston MY20 was an Akabone caliper and it weighs a lot more than the current 6 caliper set which I believe is supplied by Brembo. With carbon rotors they still use the Akabone - but with the steel rotors i think the weight of rotors and calipers is to heavy in order to make the handling as good as possible. I have the MY20 6 pot version and I does not lack stopping power even when being driven hard on track.Didn't they downsize the caliper for the coated brakes in 2021 due to supply issue?
I found the standard red brakes insufficient. I had a first generation Audi S7 previous, and the Audi emergency braking performance was significantly better than my 4S.
However, I don't know if it has more to do with the brakes or the car's weight and the timing the friction brakes kicking in.
