That's funny. This was the EXACT same response (word for word minus z06) that the instructors at a Porsche sport driving school told my friend about their CCB rotors. He believed them, ordered...

Thanks for the info. I never knew there was a difference. So that would explain why the Chevy CCM rotors are cheaper than Porsche CCB. Given that the Porsche CCBs don't hold up well with track use...

Yes, you are right that PSM will eat your rear rotors. Given that PTV also utilizes the rear brakes, I would guess it probably adds to the rear wear as well. PSM is probably the main 'offender',...

Totally agree with you on the benefits of CCB, there's no debate there.
It's very interesting that you bring up the PTV system, because I agree that it does affect the lifespan of CCB rotors. I've...

I guess since camaros aren't driven at road courses as much as drag strips, it can be hard to believe that there are actually people out there who do road courses.

On a short track, 3 seconds is a lot of time. If you track a car, you'd know that it's big difference.

Nope. Not here. Based on your avatar, I can see why you would want a supercharger. Forced induction is great for drag racing. On a road course, forced induction is a liability. Power delivery is...
