Looks pretty decent.
I believe the basic premise of this thread is, can you currently lock the brakes/invoke the ABS?
If yes, better brakes gain little until you increase tire grip.
Once you have better grip, then there are things that are inexpensive and get gains in stopping, feel, fade resistance.
I forgot to note the tires in the video, but IIRC they are basically track tires (better grip) on a second set of rims. These may be better than most DD tires, thus they can handle more brake torque.
