Brakes

I like to get the best from my beloved 991.1 TT so apologies for the "particular" nature of my question. I have standard steel discs with gt3 pads at the moment and I am considering a brake upgrade.
 
I am intrigued at maximum g forces recorded:
cornering (1.28 on track) and,
acceleration (1.26 with launch control on good tarmac)
are much higher than .98 on full braking.
 
On track the brakes seem to work well and the ABS steps in under occasion very hard braking on MPS4S tyres so I guess that all components are working well.
 
It may be because the front tyres are  more narrow and do most of the braking.
Any other ideas would be gratefully received please?

    Hi, all 3 G levels can be higher with semi slick and slick Racing tyres, but almost 1G on braking with road tyres is pretty good and
    wouldn't be easy to increase this will a disc size increase and / or caliper size change...
