Irb: Great post thanks for sharing all of that information about your background and future car choice. I think we see pretty eye to eye here. One small correction though. Heat (energy dissipated) depends only on mass and speed (and yes brake balance if one tire has more grip) the resulting temperature rise then depends on roughly in order the rotor weight, rotor specific heat (how much its temperature increases for a given energy input) brake cooling rate, brake system weight (including caliper and pad), and conductivity out of the system through the fluid route and the hub route. Heat and temperature are far from equivalent - not even the same units nor concept, but common everyday English diction causes confusion here as well.

earlyapex: Great post as well. Welcome to the forum. Keep up the no nonsense style!
