I am still waiting on the brakes as the GTR is currently out of stock from Italy and they are on their summer break. Will do once I have my first track session. Unfortunately, as I am not expecting the brakes in October, it will probably be November before I can get out.

Yup .

It is forged rather than cast. 10% lighter, but it is probably not significant in terms of performance. Heat dissipation and shielding will be better than the GT, and it is more rigid than the GT. It will last for one race season, but I was told some lesser teams can go 2-3 season without problems.

It is really designed for serious track cars but still able to use the car on the street.

Love the calipers, I just wished they used the standard 'brembo' font and not the comic sans.

Yes... very small gripe for such a great set of brakes.

Ilia, have you guys ever repainted the black hubs on the rotors?

My hubs have been weathered and now look stripped of their paint.
My question is can I paint the hardware? Theres no way I'm taking apart the rotors.
