Not one car had ceramic disks as far as I could tell. Why is that?
When and where was this held, I know nothing about it. Also is a said earlier a Porsche mechanic felt it's the fact they are not working at optimum temperature the majority of the time is the cause of the continuing problems they (Porsche) are having, I doubt other manufacturers are any different.
A good aftermarket setup gives equally good braking performance and are as good for most club/track day events at half the price. Weight is the sole advantage I see when placed on a road car, oh yeah and the bragging rights of course.
