I don’t understand your math. Haha my 44MM pistons are pretty large. I don’t see how the Jamar has 10x the surface area of our pistons. But I also have not really looked into it.
edit. The jamar has 1.5” pistons mine are 44MM is 1.75” so it’s for sure not 10x with the Jamars.
I agree more braking is better. Our brakes were really good and we could lock them up at ay time. Now not so sure.

Math is simple.....BUT.....I may have it wrong by assuming your calipers a (4) four piston units.
A) Choose a standard of measurement....MM or INCH and do conversions accordingly
B) Combine the total piston area for each caliper ( your caliper vs the Jamar mentioned )
C) Calculate the difference in piston surface area from one caliper brand to the next
Note: piston diameter ( radius squared ) x 3.14167 = surface area of each piston
If your current calipers are indeed (4) four piston units with 2) 44mm & 2) 40mm pistons per caliper.....( 44mm + 44mm + 40mm + 40mm x 3.14167 ) your total piston surface area is 527.80mm.
Jamar (6) six piston calipers mentioned have (4) four pistons @ 1.5" (38.10mm each ) and (2) two pistons @ 1.250" (31.75mm each ) per caliper....for a combined total surface area of 678.27mm ( 38.10mm + 38.10mm + 38.10mm + 38.10mm + 31.75mm + 31.75mm x 3.14167 )
My example IN NO WAY was to say your current set-up cannot be effective or "lock the brakes".....in fact, I'm certain your equipment is capable of what you say / describe.....the key is for the equipment to reliably and consistently have the ability to be repeatable over a wide range of conditions and temperatures to instill the necessary operator confidence to drive harder and hopefully faster.
I'm not your opposition,......I'm on your side here just trying to help sort things out.
Cheers......
