Default Carbon Ceramic Brakes.

Now guys,

Some of you are now aware that I am (some say crazy ) for going ahead with Carbon Fibre/MagnAlium wheels, priced at a head spinning

So to complement the unsprung weight and reduced rotational mass of the wheels, I can now say with confidence (kit in production) that my Carbon Ceramic Brake kit will soon be completed.

So.... are you telling us that you are getting them? Or are you trying to sell them to us with only 7 posts??

Just letting everyone know I am getting them, as my Clubbie S has disappointing brakes (stock OEM) and I am not that impressed with what is currently offered, as I am a bit of a perfectionist.

Sorry if it seems like blatant advertising, if it's wrong to shout about products I am having produced as 1 off's for me, then please remove all threads concerned, I will edit my threads.

It might come across as "look at me and my fancy expansive stuff" Especially if you start naming price tags in the first few post that you make.

Don't get me wrong .. I love one off's .. and the more insane .. the better

I only mentioned the price of the wheels, as this would have been asked, I am not making any other reference to price, as we all have our own budgets.

So with these brakes you must be planning on some type of engine mods correct? Swapping in a V12?

Long story cut very short, it's just me and my dog now, and bought my clubbie S as its just perfect for my needs (very practical)

Maybe I am an Eccentric mad Englishman! (mad dogs and Englishmen)

Yes lots more mods are in the works

Tuning/modification is in my blood, as I am a Race Car Engineer.

Mad Englishman or not, I'm glad you're putting this together and I can't wait to see the results.
