    Based on what I understand to be the Porsche experience with tracking PCCB equipped cars, I wonder whether anyone will attempt a ceramic to conventional conversion on a Stradale - or if such a conversion is even possible? I'm not advocating any modification, and would hate to do it to my own car, but at $20k+ per set of rotors, conversion might make economic sense for track junkies. Thoughts?

    Fortunately, it appears based on experience so far, that Ferrari's carbon ceramic brakes are far better than PCCBs! It looks like Ferrari's might actually function well as combo track / street setup. Of course, PCCBs have way more miles on them and way more track nuts driving them... so, the jury is still out... but it looks promising.

    As for a swap, my understanding is that its not a huge difficulty... but if anyone has looked into it further, knowing its reasonably straight-forward would be comforting.

    An interesting note: The 360 GTC front brakes rotors are the same diameter and slightly narrower. I think they may be a possible fit with a change to the carrier. I also believe they are the same caliper. Can anyone confirm this?
