Hi Richard, what is the outcome that you hope for?Anyone used them, feedback? I'm getting a big brake kit from Ceika and CF rotors are one of the options. At present I'm asking Ceika about brake pads to suit, as far as I know they need carbon ceramic pads.
Nope, it's the opposite. They last much longer than steel rotors and pads. The thing is, unless you're going to be setting fire to your braking system on wild hairy-arsed tours of the highlands in a 55, you're unlikely to get the benefit from them.Aren't carbon fibre rotors for race cars? In that situation I would have thought that they are considered a disposable to be replaced regularly.
You do realize it is $10k USD to change to carbon composite brakes for each end, right?The car will be mainly used "off road" so I'm thinking that with CF rotors brake cooling will be less of a problem, except for the brake fluid of course. Titanium shims between the pads and cups used to be a thing for insulating heat from the cups and fluid, not sure if they are available. One important thing is less (rotating) weight though.
Might just try a set on the front, can always change back to iron.
