Part of the reason that the ceramics are lacking in feel might be due to them not being run in ... although I do not know if this is a reasonable point ... but it seems like one to me.It's strange that the ceramic brakes on the Vegas R8 test cars are being criticized for "lack of feel" which is precisely the opposite of the reviews for the new Porsche GT3. When first introduced, Porsche touted ceramics as being the ultimate lifetime brake disc, immune to warping, wear and overheating, and charged big bucks for them. Ironically their first versions were prone to early failure under hard track use and Porsche subsequently decided NOT to cover them under warranty! Most early users have switched to steel rotors. Hopefully the latest versions are much improved!
