disk brakes too hot

Well we just got back from our first 5 mile shake down ride- it is shifting much better and goes to 175-180 and stays there- the oil pressure is great- THS disk brakes are HOT- the rims are hot to the touch- the car stops good and straight- no pulling and we can smell the brakes just a little. the calipers are really close to the rims could this be why they are hot? I jacked up the car and put it in neutral and the rear tires are tight- pretty tight- could this be just new brakes? or maybe a bad M/C?- fun ride though
