Ill give the typical answers For street use, the brembos shine in both power and style. For track use Stoptech is the way to go.
I've had Brembo cross-drilled and slotted rotors since January. I find myself able to stop much more quickly in wet or icy conditions owing to the fact that there's a place for the water and steam to escape to, enabling my pads to grip better. In conditions other than those influenced by water in its three mischievous states, I think the braking response is roughly similar to stock. It has saved my neck a couple of times in the rain, though.
