has anybody done a real test to see if the non power disc stop any better then the non power drum.... seems a lot of folks have problems with the disc and was just wondering if it was worth the effort.... :confused:

There should be no difference if the disc/drum or disc/disc systems are working properly for hard panic stops. Distances will be the same. However, if pushed ie; many hard panic stops for testing, autocross or roadcoursed the drums will heat up and began a fading process in your braking needed.
