Re: need more stopping power!
LOL, FE is right, those are decent brakes. While any brakes can be improved, you should not have to stand on them to stop from 94mph even on a short overrun. When working properly and equipped with good street performance pads and shoes, '78-'83 Mustang V8 brakes will put you through the windshield. I would grab a shop manual (Ford - not Shilton's or similar) and go through the whole braking system. Hawk or Porterfield pads and shoes will stop it scary fast, and are nice to have, but you should not require those for what you're doing. Good quality semi-mets should do. You're just stopping a car from 94 mph. Not a biggie.
