The rotors maybe, but not the pads
. To give you the only reference I have, the regular pads (per axle) for the Ferrari F430 cost $288, vs $2,000 for the CCBs. And people who track these cars say they're crap for the track, since they're not for racing. Most owners tracking their cars replace them with Brembo steel rotors and pads, and put away the CCBs for resale. Seems like a pricey option just for bragging rights, since good CCBs are crap on the streets (don't heat enough), plus squeal like crazy.
