    Default Will an F430 with Ceramics fall apart if driven hard on track?

    I keep reading scare stories about 430's not being up to track day use - especially brakes. Is there anything I should be aware of or just not bother?

    Thanks

    Well my steel brakes overheated after 2 laps of the Top Gear track a couple of years ago. And that was the shortened Dad's Day Out" circuit!

    Your ceramics will be absolutely fine and will enhance your track experience.

    I've been tracking the CS 2/3 times a year for the last 3 years and have never had an issue and in fact I have not even seen any dramatic increase in wear. They just work and work very, very well.

    The CCB on the 430 were great on track, both on a short TopGear track or at Brands. Two or three a year and your fine.
