Here is what I run on mine.



A tad off topic Stephen but that's your 997 with the Dymag's on it correct? How do you like those carbon hoops? I bet they more than make up for the unsprung weight increase in swapping from pccb to steel rotors

The pccb rotor issue seems to have been known since track day one and has yet to be resolved, yet Porsche still claims their absurd price tag on the option. I know a couple local 997TT owner have brought their cars back in to the dealer for PCCB upgrades and sold the OEM steel setup, obviously not for track or uneducated in the matter. I feel bad for the C-GT owners who really track their cars, 15" carbons all around with center lock hat setups can't be cheap!

I have a cracked and disintegrated pccb v1 rotor from a 996 GT3 that I'm eventually going to turn into a wall clock. Seems fitting but what a waste right......
