What we experience on hard braking during autocross is that the car does not brake as well as most cars we have driven. Occasionally we would have a lack of the majority of braking which we assume is an ice mode. Our last change was to change to softer pads in the rear to solve the brake bias problem like Fred mentioned above. Since then, we realized that neither of us has had an ice mode event. [fingers crossed] But I would still not describe the braking as good as a Miata or an S2000. We do a left foot braking which helps with getting the car to handle better.

For an autocrosser what kind of change would we see?

I haven't done a track day in a year. The much longer braking events make it much easier to play around and generate a lot more heat. Even very good fluid we will loose most of the braking by the end of a 20 minute session at COTA. We have the hatted rotors and semi-race pads in the front but no stainless piston or any of the other brake changes. For a track car this seems like a possible solution.
