Default Options to add CCBs

I bought my new LP560 without the CCB option and now wish I would have opted for it. Looked through a few search options and no clear answer to this question so far, are there any options for adding ceramic rotors and/or pads to the LP560? Coming from a ZR1 the stopping of the LP needs a little help not to mention the insane amount of brake dust everywhere.

Also is it normal when braking hard from 150+mph to have the car feel like it wants to spin the rear around the front to the point the driver has to counter steer? Maybe itís the mid-engine setup Iím not sure. Forgive the noobness as I am more used to rear wheel drive Camaros, Corvettes, and Ford GTís. Thanks guys!

Yup. Inertia. The back is heavier, wants to come around. You can use it to your advantage getting it to rotate into corners under hard braking Nice to know you're driving it properly!

Try just slotting in some EBC yellow or other high performance pads. I found the OEM Ferodo's were crap. EBC's made a HUGE difference.

Hey Glen,

The above part numbers are wrong. They are for 2004-2008 Gallardo. He has a LP560. Since he has a LP560, he doesn't have to change his hubs, only rotors and calipers . I hope you don't mind me correcting you.

Thanks
Sean

Only way to resolve the unstable braking is add grippier tires. Why do you need more braking power... The brakes are overcoming the grip of the rubber already in stock form hence the instability you feel.

The only real reason for an upgrade in the brakes as far as i feel is to stop brake fade if you really push the car, for example repeatedly at the track. If so, have you considered an endless mono block gt set up?

Cheers and welcome to the forum.

Thanks for the great feedback gvan. With the EBC ceramic pads did you notice a significant reduction in brake dust on the rims and car? Also are the pads quiet during braking as some ceramic pads tend to squeak?

I may elect to only go the pad route for now and do the full CCB conversion once the UGR twin kit gets put on. Since I bought the car new I want to drive it for a few thousand miles to make sure there are no factory issues that need to be fixed under warranty.

Thanks for the info about the inertia, will have to keep that in mind and modulate the braking a little smoother.

Thanks for the warm welcome. I agree the brakes and inertia are overpowering the grip of the tires. The idea is to be prepared for the addition of a twin turbo kit where the condition will be worse. Better brakes and tires should make the car safer and enhance performance; a win-win combo.

I can say that there is WAY more initial bite as well as overall braking power. Hard to say about the dust since I have titanium wheels and my car is rarely washed (I couldn't care less about dust). They have some different formulations (I think the EBC greens?) meant for reduced dust that should still be an improvement from OEM. In any case the EBC yellows on my car have been perfectly quiet.
