...and even bigger FPV ones - 355 x 32mm fronts and 330 x 28mm rears courtesy of Brembo (they do cost 6 grand though...)

Re: BA brakes, what size?

Mate 95% of your stopping power IS the fronts so haveing smaller back brakes doesn't matter ! FPV standard brakes are 325 X 32 fronts and 303 X 16 rears, As an upgrade on the BA XR8 these will cost around $5600 so asking for $3500 is a good price.
