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.

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 than the ones on the Carrera GT. He had a quizzical look on his face so I told him about my track experiences.

When we were absolutely out of earshot of anyone else he said that even though PCCB is probably a "forever" rotor on the street, they are wear parts on the track.

I just ordered Mov'It rotors for my Carrera GT.

The new 396x40 CER front with 6 Piston Billet Calipers and 380x32mm CER rear with 4 Piston Billet Calipers Full MovIt CER Kits are due to start shipping next week. This is the new kit that has been in the R&D phase for the last 12+ months and is for the GT2 and GT3 997 platform.

We have 4 full kits due to ship by the end of October, 5 PCCB rotor replacement kits due to ship before the end of Sept and Mike's Carrera GT PCCB replacement CER rotor kit set to ship end of Sept. More recently received orders have tentative ship dates for Nov 2011.

Looks like the fun is just about to start
