What experiences have you had with brake upgrades?

I fitted a set of racing pads which turned out to be useless on the road as they never got hot enough and they also made a horrible sound every time I applied them.

Dot 5 brake fluid worked quite well for me as did an upgrade to braided brake hoses.

Large discs always made a big difference to me even if I only used standard OEM pads for the new disc size.

Vented and grooved discs work much better than standard discs for the same size. I suppose I am comparing old with new but the pads move into the disc as it wears so I reckon the comparison stands.
