CCB's are going to last months not days with track use. I've tracked and owned 458's, GT3RS, Huracan, Mac 570 and no issues. You can normally get tons of track days easy on CCB. On steel you could go through them in a few sessions (again depending upon use and track configuration).
IF you are using QUAD as a primary track car (of which I know no one doing--we have other 2 door toys to play with on track), then get CCB's.
Don't track cars if you are scared of spending money. It's the best way to part with your money, but you know that going in and I always consider it cost of entertainment.
For the once or twice a year track day kinda guy that is going to take this out, steel is fine.
My Giulia QV (Quad as you call it) is my back up track car or if I just want to go to my local track and have fun passing fast 2 door cars with good drivers in a four-door sedan and blowing their mind. My main track car is a highly modded 4C.
Sorry donít agree with you it all on how long the CCB will last and I speak from experience ( and expense!). I own a 2017 QV and I have replaced my front brake pads 2 times now and rears once.
It all depends on how hard you drive the car how late are you brake. A waxer (not saying you are) can own a CCB equipted car and get 100,000 miles out of the front pads. A professional race driver ( not me) will wear in one long track day.
I totally agree with you that steel is just fine for people track only a few times a year. And even more if you just donít drive and brake real hard. Tracking can be quite fun without going crazy fast as the car can go and it certainly is a lot less expensive.
I also totally agree with you that no one should track a car unless ready to spend the money to do it safely. I donít think being scared has much to do with it more itís just some people try to be cheap and drive on tires and brake pads that should be replaced. They are usually the ones that go off course when their brakes overcook and then they never come back because they realize how expensive tracking is.
I track quite a bit and thatís why I love tracking with the 4C as this lightweight car is 1/3 the cost to track versus my Giulia QV and faster. I have own a lot of sports cars and I tracked a lot of cars. Yes some brake designs are a bit more efficient and parts less expensive than others but Itís all about the weight yo and doesnít matter what make of car you are driving.
You were talking about entertainment value I canít think anything more fun than passing 2 door sports cars in a sedan. In my Giulia Iíve blown up Porsche Turbo S, GT3 etc. And after the session the drivers come up to me thinking Iím the best driver in the world (whereas Iím certainly not) itís just that Iím a good driver and much better than they are and my car is as **** fast as there car is.
Here is a video passing Porsches before I lowered my Giulia.
