I'm using Porterfield R-4 and am very happy with them. Chuck is using one of the Racing Brake ones ( i don't remember which ones ) with the big brake kit.

I have the RB BBK with the #7 pads, i dont push the braking envelope so the pads are just adequate, for those who care the car has 8/6 springs, special valved Koni coil overs from Ground Control, set full stiff in front full soft in rear, front bar is unknown origin 1-1/8" diameter, ride height is almost 26" to fender lip, she will hit bump stops/fender liner once in a while in front and rear at that height, i dont know how you can go lower with these spring rates really, it really bumps on liner at the landing out of the carasel at Laguna every lap........i might try a bigger front bar but the front is hooked up nicely and i wouldnt want to sacrifice much there......
oh, R888 255x35 all 4 corners on RPF1 rims (thanks rishie)
