Default Carbon Ceramic Brake Kit Cost


I saw some discussions on CCM brake in this thread, but I don't seem to recall of such a contact in regard to CCM brake development for Viper. Two years later ACR Extreme has CCM as stock, so your vision was pretty good.

Honestly CCM brake has its merit primarily for its thermal stability at extreme temperature which is not something of a cast iron rotor can replace and is more advantageous for track racing, provided the proper pad is used and braking temperature is kept under threshold (below 700C). It's now even an optional item for BMW M3/M4 (F80) and MB C63S both from 2014/2015 so obviously it's getting more popular.

There are two proven CCM rotors; OE Brembo (SGL) and Surface Transforms from UK, and we are very familiar with both sources and can design and build them into most car/model applications, including our latest CCM project for Lexus RC F.

But in reality is the cost - Between a consumer's expectation vs. the cost to make it available. True ZR1 rotor is available @$1400 - $1500 per rotor (after tax and shipping), but by the time the newly designed hats are made and assembled they are at $2,000/rotor, then adding calipers (Serious 6/4 pot that take huge pads 80mm width ~@$3,500), pads ($1,000-$1,500/car set), brake lines etc. ~ $13,000* is the mfg cost, so selling for $15,000 seems not too unreasonable although it's still better than your $33,000.

Price of a decent CCM rotor kit is not going to go any lower until Brembo or ST drop their rotor prices but comparing to 10 years ago it's already very affordable.

*Even the stock ZR1 bolt-on kit (no modification/design change) costs $9,000 with color adder $2,250 total: $1,1250

Viper Exchange offers at $12,000.00 to $15,000.00

RB can design and build a CCM brake kit for Viper 3/4/5 at its lowest possible price in the industry, the matter is if that's the price you are willing to pay.

Here is a rotor kit (no calipers) from Stillen/AP for GT-R.
