Default New D2 brakes on the Z

Hey, I just thought I would post up some pictures of my new brakes. They are 380mm 12 pot D2 brakes with 15" rotors. Let me know what you think.

Yea we put all 4 on. The last picture is of the rear brakes. They are 6 pot and 13" rotors. Hopefully we will have the car up and running soon so we can try them out

Why in the world would you need that much stopping power? I'm guessing you have some crazy engine build?

Can tires even supply you with enough grip to use those things?
