So i guess BBK's allow you to run grippier pads and still deal with the heat they create?
Si. I suppose you can see it that way. Basically most of the difference with BBKs involve brake feel/modulation/heat management/consistency.
I wouldn't necesarily expect a lower braking distance when using a BBK. I would look out for consistency under harsh conditions, and good brake modulation.
I feel that anyone who plans to keep using their LGT for the street and auto-x only doesn't really have to look into a BBK.
