Eric McClellan (esvid.net/u-gearheaddaily) wanted a new car and decided a Chevrolet Corvette was the right choice. He really wanted a specific option on a C6, though, Carbon Ceramic Brakes. Would he be able to find the right one and get it home safely?

Eric, both you and your son are awesome. That car isn't half-bad either. Great episode!

I will never forget the day I was on my way home from my Mother's place and it looked like rain was about to hit... I know my front tires are going to be a nightmare in the rain. I lay into it... I'm cranking down the interstate and I think to myself "watch there be an Officer behind that dirt birm up there" I pass the dirt birm doing a speed which should have landed me a night in jail and I see the unmarked car snuggled up to the birm. I'm like "Oh f*** I'm going to jail!" I do the right thing and I pull over.... The Officer flies up to me on my drivers side, I have my window down and the car off already. He says " *YOU need to slow the F**** *down!!!!* *GO!* " YES SIR! I called my Mother and told her the story... LOL good times!

Carbon ceramics don't stop you any better than steel brakes, they just don't fade when in constant use on track

So real question. Why spend the time and effort to try and find one with factory carbon breaks instead of just buying one without and modifying it with carbon brakes?

Another thing that causes that effect on windows is if you use Rain-X and take it to a car wash that puts anything like Bush's wheel acid in the tank. I've personally seen it happen when my girlfriend was helping me wash my car and used my wheel bucket and scrubbing brush to get bugs off the windshield. Totally destroyed it to the point of having to replace it.

Beautiful car... but I'm a bit biased. I've got the same car but a Lingenfelter Grand Sport that makes around 611rwhp. They're beautiful cars and thank you for sharing your story. I've got some upgrades to make (mostly little carbon bits here and there) but I really regret not doing the carbon ceramic brakes... if I run across a deal (meaning sub 4k), maybe I'll take the bite.

@6:27 that looks a lot like the 264 tunnel in Hampton roads, but I guess they all look alike. Don't get caught hauling out there if it is. It turns out they are against it. On second thought I think I am talking out my arse, but that tunnel looks very familiar from somewhere.

Those brakes are fun until you roast the rotors after 1 track season. At $1250 a rotor, they're not fun to replace. Trust me I know.

Good brakes are just about the most important part of a car in my opinion. It doesn't matter how quickly you get going, it's what happens once you get there and suddenly find something stationary in your path. Good insurance coverage is also important...

$2000 and they stop basically the same as non carbons. Unless you seriously track the car, I don't see the point of getting them. So much more you could do for $2000 than make your braking better on the bleeding edge.

I’m from Arkansas and you are super lucky man. I left for coast guard in 2012 and saved up for a lotus Elise a few years later. Got my first ticket on leave back home going just a tad over the limit leaving an empty parking lot at the big D bridge in Little Rock one late night with a girl. The cop literally told me “just because you have a cool car doesn’t mean you can speed”. They loveeee to hide all over the place in this state. Get into the rural areas and they will hide in the woods. Edit to say, it’s funny how you can drive bat shit crazy in Houston where I was last stationed and it’s totally normal, but you drive anything even slightly different than a mustang in Arkansas and all of a sudden you are an outsider. I’m obviously not rich, I just like to enjoy corners!! They have no idea my car costed as much as their Hyundai

I’d imagine in excess of 150. Not super familiar with the corvettes transaxle but my buddy has a C7 and he says he cruised 90 at 2000 RPMs in like 6th so.
