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.
I've heard of a few people doing that, but I'd say fallacy of small sample. Usually the reason to not track them has more to do with parts replacement cost in case of a shunt. Mov'it claims much higher braking power in their setup, and with the massive weight loss you can get far better cornering. I wouldn't discount the value of them as simply aesthetics or bragging rights. Too pricey for me though.
