Nope, the distances would be almost unchanged. This is because braking distances are generally tire-road friction limited. You would see some benefit if you first over heated and got the stock brakes well into a fade limiting braking scenario first. What you get from CCBs are principally:

-Lighter and lower moment of inertia
-Much greater resistance to heat and heat fade
-Longer rotor life
-An empty bank account
