I wanna see longer term test results. The fact that Porsche guys go back to iron says something to me about ongoing costs.
Wonder if Zr1 guys go back to iron too...?
All these I should say partial true "misception" were due to the early adaption of Brembo's pccb on 996/997 with not so matured CCM discs (before SGL was acquired by Brembo), and after more than 10 years the disc material and mfg process together has made CCM rotors more durable and economical, including other optional discs that are made of alternative material and process continuous fibers - vs. Brrembo's chopped fibers.
But I think it's going to change with our offer of RB CCB system for Porsche:

Very good point.
A well designed brake system can actually "enhance" the overall value of a performance car in addition to preserving the value.
We love the advancement of the new brake rotor and pad material, while our design is still based on old school tradition; the fundamental of material science and physics (thermodynamics) for a maximum flexibility and interchangeability. As an example ALL RB-CCB brake system offer for Porsche are designed to use the same calipers and rotors (front and rear), the only difference in the kit is the adaptors for different spindles/upright. (from 993 all the way to 991)
The disc sizes are 394/390, the brake pads used in RB calipers (with open top and differential bores) are same as Z28 and ZR1 C7, so you know the replacements are much cheaper and easier than Porsche dealers, and they will continue be available 10, 20 or 30 years down the road.
For those who are looking for something different or better, we offer continuous fiber discs and sintered pads options. They are made only with different material / compound but are 100% compatible with ZR1/Z28 fitment.
Our idea is to offer a ccb system to transform either the traditional iron brake or expensive pccb with a "bullet proof" performance yet even more cost effective (cheaper to run than iron) system, good for any driving condition.
We believe if a system can satisfy the renown Porsche's professional racer David Dononue it's probably good for the rest of us.
RB is the first company offers iron conversion for ZR1/Z28 but very few people doing this conversion.
