wouldn't it be safe to assume that the "average at best" brakes are probably okay for the average person. my bone stock 1997 legacy L has ZERO issues activating its anti-lock brakes, my stock wrx brakes had ZERO issues activating the anti-lock brakes on the RE92's or even much better tire options for that matter, and my stock wrx had ZERO issues overcoming the traction abilities of my RE92 tires. i mean, the only time i ever saw any real issues with fade on my stock wrx brakes was on an 11 mile long VERY spirited canyon run. for the next run of this same canyon, all i changed was the fluid to a higher boiling point fluid and the pads to ones with better heat ranges, and pretty much all fade went away. i would say that a good majority of subaru drivers have probably never even felt brake fade at all on their stock brakes because they never drive them hard enough to even get to this, and i think that is the point. for the avg subaru drivers on the roads, the stock brakes do just fine, and upgrading the pads and fluid would probably take care of alot of the others.
