We now have fitments of CFRC rotors for various Audi and Lamborghini vehicles. CFRC, which stands for continuous fiber reinforced ceramic, is a mature technology used by many hyper car manufacturers including Koenigsegg since 2004. There are dozens of currently available fitments for Porsche, Ferrari, McClaren, Ford GT, Nissan GT-R, Mercedes AMG GT-S/R and Aston Martin. It's Audi and Lamborghini's turn.
Audi and Lamborghini use a CCB rotor (carbon ceramic brakes) which are made through a cast process which utilizes chopped carbon fiber. In theory, these brakes should offer a substantial performance gain over standard cast-iron rotors and in many ways they do. They also have two major pitfalls; replacements are prohibitively expensive and they tend not to do well on track, especially when overheated. As the resin is burned out of the disc, their ability to brake is lessened to the point where the discs must be replaced. Some owners have managed to do this in as little as one track day.
Enter the CFRC rotors from Surface Transform which use a multidirectional matrix of continuous carbon fiber. Where the CCB rotors are cast in molds, CFRC rotors are machined. Not only are they more thermally efficient, they can be "renewed" good as new via an inexpensive process with quick turn-around.
This is, of course, the holy grail of carbon ceramic rotors. If you overheat and wear out a set of CCB rotors, there are currently no reliable options to refurbish them and can cost well over $20,000USD to replace. Not so with the CFRC rotors. Simply send them in for renewal and 10 days later, they're ready to go.
CFRC rotors have on average a TRACK LIFE of 5,000 miles before needing a refurbishment. The process is approximately $600 per rotor and therefore highly affordable and repeatable two times over the life of the disc. The rotors themselves come in at about half the cost of a set of CCB rotors. It's really a no-brainer. Track your car? Grab a set of these and don't worry about burning them up. Long term serviceability for street or track driven cars makes them cost efficient and there are brake pad options for each. In addition, these rotors are designed to work with carbon ceramic and normal cast-iron calipers. Owners of the standard brake-equipped models can now upgrade to a ceramic rotor and all of their benefits.
