Default '17 Z07 carbon brakes

Removed the front & rear carbon brakes with red calipers off my '17 Z07 and installed AP kit since it's a track only car and didnt want replacement cost. Brand new, drove home and on the lift she went. $5000+shipping

Now that's funny. A bump for you for making me laugh on a busy, endless Wednesday afternoon. GLWS. I track and have friends with carbon setups on Z28s and Z06s. NO One has ever regretted the carbon setup, and your price is great for the whole kit.

If you go to track often enough, these CCBs quickly become a problem. They're hard to check (you have to remove the fragile rotor to weigh, which you should do after a toxic cleaning session with air), they start eating $600 pads at twice the pace as the rotors start wearing out and become not-so-smooth, they might hurt the suspension joints since they run hotter, and finally the price is quite steep.

A good steel system can easily match fade resistance, get very close in weight (and be better at rear weight) and let you free to decide on the level of bite, while keeping the maintenance costs in check.

Looked at some of your posts over time, so I know you're an avid track guy. (You may even be the same guy from the camaro 5 forum with a 1LE set up mostly for track, same user name).
Can't argue what you're saying, but my friends and I are more amateur weekend warriors than serious dedicated track car builders. I've heard the same point as yours from people who build dedicated track cars, but for someone like me, I'd do ceramic in a heartbeat as my car is not a dedicated track machine, more of a weekend fun toy with an occasional track day.
Whoever buys these should not cheap out on shipping though. These are fragile and careless shipping can result in an expensive paperweight.

Fair enough, and I think CCBs are excellent for street anyway; the rotors usually last the life of the car!

Very interested but was unsure. Would these fit a C6 Z06/ZR1 by chance?

Thanks,

Steven

Yes, they will fit as long as you get C7 knuckles($80-$90 a corner) you will also need to run 20's rear-19's front. These are new and like the guys above are saying, my car is a track monster only. This is a beautiful setup.

Thanks. I will get back with you. Just need to make sure I can utilize the 20's because the car will be making 1500hp.
