Re: MovIt Carbon Silicon Carbide Rotors as PCCB Replacement?

OK, I'm back from the 918 event.

During our tour of the Weissach work shops I cornered a high-up chassis development engineer and asked him if the 918 PCCB brakes were going to be more durable...

Re: Hmmm... What Do You Think of This 991?

I saw several completely undisguised examples in person over the weekend at Weissach and I thought they looked spectacular.

Re: Lucky Buyers: 4.0 Spec Thread- What Is Yours?

Sorry, no pictures. Porsche AG personnel safely stored (confiscated? ;-)) all cameras and mobile phones and made us re-sign non-disclosure agreements before we could begin the festivities.

Re: Lucky Buyers: 4.0 Spec Thread- What Is Yours?

I just returned from a boondoggle to the Porsche development center. At the conclusion, I got a 3-hot-lap ride around the Weissach test track from Romain Dumas in a white RS 4.0 with white wheels...

Re: Mixing PCCB rotors w/ iron rotors?

I can speculate, but I'm not a brake engineer and I have never played one on TV.

One should be careful about line-pressure and temperature differences in the response of the two rotor materials. ...

Re: MovIt Carbon Silicon Carbide Rotors as PCCB Replacement?

I don't know what I'll be able to say when I come home from the event. I just received a mandatory non-disclosure agreement in the mail along with a hard-cover pre-event brochure/book.

Re: Lucky Buyers: 4.0 Spec Thread- What Is Yours?

Mine will be built around October 19 -- so delivery stateside around Thanksgiving. Too cold by then to enjoy it, but dreaming about Spring will be pleasant :-DD

Re: MovIt Carbon Silicon Carbide Rotors as PCCB Replacement?

That's very encouraging. I might just have to "update" my Carrera GT with better brakes!

I'm going to a 918 event in Weissach in a few weeks and I'll try my best to coax some more brake info out...

Re: MovIt Carbon Silicon Carbide Rotors as PCCB Replacement?

My Carrera GT PCCB rotors are starting to look pretty crappy and the pads make a scuffing noise when I apply the brakes in situations that are quiet enough to hear them. My Porsche dealer says I...

Re: 4.0 RS in the wild

If my Carrera GT is anything to go by, PCCBs should help a whole bunch with keeping wheels clean.

Re: 996 or 997

Two things help Carrera GT track handling when I'm driving ;)
