The bigger the better, but usually with BBK's they take a few good hard stops or partial stops to get them warmed up. Depending on how long your Auto-X course is and how long you wait between runs, it may not be the best idea. It depends on your pad and rotor combo too. You 'may' need to run a bigger wheel up front to compensate the bigger calipers.

Have you looked into a upgraded pad and rotor set up on the stock SVT Brakes? I like my Centric Rotors and Hawk HPS Pad set up.
