Default front brakes...what are my options?

I have come to the conclusion I need bigger brakes...badly.

I stopped 3 times yesterday within about 2 minutes....once from 75, the next from 60, then the next from 40...and they were rather quick stops, but, still.

When I stopped (I was in front of my house the last time), the brakes were smoking. Literally smoke bellowing from behind the wheels, and the brake fade on that last stop was horrible.

My thing is, while pads may help it stop better, they're not going to solve the heat problem, so, my question is...what are my options for upgrading to larger front brakes? These just aren't cutting it.

The Conquest I had, I did a few stops from 80, and a few stops from everywhere beneath, and they never faded nor smoked, and they were just duralast pads. So...I do have a feeling its an undersized brake issue.

I shoulda grabbed a picture...it looked kinda cool...lol

But, what are my options?
