I'd like to hear from another ZL1 owner who has used these...

They seem nice but they are on the pricy side.

I have these on all 4 corners. No issues with them at all. I have a set of street pads in the car now but I also have a set of track pads. Do not use the track pads on the street unless you like squeaky brakes.

Good feedback

Have you done any track days with this set up? Just looking for some OEM vs RB comparison.

I have not tracked the car yet with this setup. I was supposed to take it out a month ago but I couldn't get the car quiet enough to run on track in time. I plan on taking it out soon.

Sorry but they're crazy overpriced. They're over halfway to a true track caliper AND rotor upgrade. Hell the rings are 2-3x the price of BBK rings replacements. The math doesn't add up.
