Looking into options for this upgrade. As we know, the GTR is a heavy pig, and It seems as though upgrading to CCM brakes is one of the best bangs for your buck. I know of WGP and the RB kit's available but do we have more options? My car is driven on the street and I attend a few half mile events every year. If vendors can chime in with pricing(feel free to send me a PM) and customers can share their experiences that would be great. I have read a fair amount of reviews but more wouldn't hurt. Thanks everyone!
Best budget CCM brake kit?

Wow nice above
The RB front ceramic rear iron set up is sweet too
Yes, the same affordable CCB/Iron combo kit also offered to those popular track cars - Just to name a few:

I have over 1k miles on my "chevy brembo" carbon ceramic front rotors with XT-910 pads. Some things I have noticed about this setup that I wanted to mention. When I tried launching the car for the first time since installing these rotors, it spun badly and TC kicked in which had never happened before. For the first time I thought I'd need to lower the launch RPM. Also, after driving in the rain and parking the car, the OEM pads would rust to the rotors overnight. In the morning you'd have to "snap" the pads off the rotors after putting the car in gear. Sometimes this seemed kinda "violent" and was never pleasant. This never happens with the CCM rotors as they won't rust and stick together. Also, when driving in the rain on the OEM setup, there was a delay in "bite" from the time you hit the pedal to the time slowing down actually happened. Like the water had to be wiped away first and then braking would take place. I have not noticed this with the new setup. It seems very consistent in all conditions. There is definitely less brake dust with the RB pads and ccm rotors combined. I wipe my finger on the caliper/hat/wheel and notice very little.
I'm really happy with this mod. Like others have said, a great mod for this car.

Where did you find the front hats that work with the zr1 rear rotors 380×34?
Get 2 rear c7 rotors new for $1350 each. Get a pair of front hats to mount rotors on Gtr ~$750. Rb 910 pads for $170. Front carbon ceramic setup for around $3600. That’s the most budget way to do it. Could do rears for same price I would think....

The rotors I used are the rear rotors from the Z28/C7. They are 390x32. Same as my factory 2013 rotors. I made the hats myself because I like to DIY as much as possible.

Check out this ebay listing for some Ferrari Cali. rotors. I believe these will "bolt on" to the GTR once the center hole is enlarged. This is a good deal for some budget minded CCM DIY'ing.
Currently at $1k for both front rotors.
I can open up the center hole in my machine shop if anyone buys these and needs some help with fitment.

What pads are you running with the carbon rotor's I have 177-1120 and 177-1121 rotor's just need to mount them up. Will a machine shop trim the factory caliper or is this something to do by hand?

The pd 1383-3910 pads are so much less then the factory replacement pads pd 1395-21 and 1165-21 makes me question if they are close to same quality? any help here please?

Yes the 1382-391 is for the front and the 1383-391 is for the rear. I did order them as they were 1/2 the cost. my question is are the compounds compatible with the zr1 ceramic rotor? I just do not want to have any issues with the pads destroying the rotor or not stopping correctly. Thanks for any help.

The Compound is XT-910 and Warren from RB specifies this compound for CCM street driving. There's a review I did in a post about these pads.
I've got over 1000 miles on them in all conditions and they are working great. I started with some old rotors that I got off ebay and they look better now than when I started. I'm guessing it's because of the layer of pad material that's building up on the rotor surface, which I understand is the way these rotor setups are supposed to work.
There are pages and pages of info on this forum about CCM brakes. I think I've read every single one, twice. There's is a lot of great information supplied by Dutch, Doug, Warren, 7 etc. etc.
