Just had a set of ceramic brake discs in my hands, they are 70% lighter than the cast ones and are bolted to a lightweight hub/bell .

these were for a Lotus Elise and were in transit to a specialist for fitting and photo shoot.

Bloody pure car porn they are, cant wait to see them on someone's car, on track and glowing orange like they do. Very Happy

They supposedly never wear out if you use the correct pads which are 250 quid a pair.

I'll get some pics or a link to the website when they have been photographed tomorrow.

Our Sie can get them made for you but they are about 1500 quid a disc so wont be goin on mine I'm afraid.

Praps I could rig some orange lights up on the hub that come on when I press the brakes Very Happy Very Happy

These are superior to the F1 brake discs as they are Carbon Silicon mix and they dont wear out

We are trying them out on a Lotus Exige at Donnington soon so may have some pics for you.

Another free day out eh ... superb Very Happy

Well, cant upload pics but a very good test day.

The Lotus outbraked everything and was seconds a lap quicker than a similar car with 100bhp more than us.

Kept sending him out with a flea in his ear cause the brakes weren't hot enough, get out there and brake HARDER we told him. I'm standing it on its nose as it is he says Very Happy

Fantastic, cant wait to get some on our car but need to sell a few of these first. Watch this space Smile
