Brembo did make the studs on the caliper brackets an option some time later for the track junkies. On the other hand studs were standard on Stoptech kits years ago. It may be just the teething pain after going from the old cast 4 pistons to the new monobloc 6 pistons.

Changing pads on the Brembo kit at the track with hot brakes is just almost impossible with the existing setup. Still a very good looking street kit with excellent performance.
