To answer your question honestly, the perfect scenario would be the Rotora calipers with Cool carbon pads but Cool Carbon doesn't make a pad for the bigger brake kits (yet).

There are pros and cons for both.
The Rotora has the clamping power, but it all comes down to the pad.
I'll also put it this way...I would take the OEM calipers with Cool Carbon over the Rotora calipers with the Rotora pads any day. The rotora pads faded easily at higher temps and the pad life was very poor. Leftcoastman went through a brand new set of H2 Rotora pads in 15 minutes!

I just can't get over the Cool Carbon pads not fading during the bedding process.
I was so hard on them and they just grabbed.
