Cmon Shawn you dont mind pulling the car up using steel as the primary friction medium, whats a little water going to do

Regardless if you want to use air to cool the brakes then you are going to need a big quantity of it and then the feed will need to be directly onto/into the disc with zero/minimal air gap. One of the giveaways to the heat of the CCM system is if you take the same set of pads, run them in an iron braked GTR and they will come out with their paint still intact after 3 - 4 track days where the same set of pads on the CCM brakes get that hot the paint burns off them within a few laps. Its quite a sight to see!

This is exactly the main reason why there are very few cars out there that are designed in such a way to allow upgrading to CCM discs while not also cooking the pads. Fortunately, the R35 has rather large front pads to hold off the inevitable a bit longer than many other cars. The trick here is cooling the pad and caliper far more than just the rotor.

Water cooled caliper like on WRC cars would be very helpful.

Possibly, yes. But they are a huge PITA with all the plumbing, coolers, pumps and lines that get beat hard (and hopefully not leak!). Maybe the R36 will have real pathways for ducting considered before they button up the front end and wheelhouse design. We'll see...
