    unlimited budget, now there's a nice thought I myself use 203mm Avid up front (and I'm loving it) but if your main use would be for nose manuals and such get a hydro because they have a better feel of control and modulation (normally not always) Alternatively you could buy a Brembo

    That's what i always hear. Maybe some ElCaminos or some Juicy 7s. I have tried hydros and mechanical, and i can agree with the above statement.
    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.
