More Braking

Looking for more braking power. Looks like the subi or mazda 929 M/C's are a good option. Anyone found any good soft compound pads/shoes? Im still all stock brakes on a 90 sami but with the 31's they definitely won't lock. They are adequate but thats never good enough. Thoughts?

Why not bolt on a good set of 4 door track/kick calipers?

I have read about the subi swap. Seems very straight forward. Just thought maybe someone knew of some softer pads/shoes that would just be a direct replacement when mine are done. I've never heard of any tho. Guess I'll start looking around some junkyards and just get more power to the setup I have.
