Never tried but shouldn't be hard (price too much for me.) Can also just ask your dealer to order it for you.

Thanks for posting this. I was wondering if I screwed up by not ordering PCCBs when I had the chance. That buyer's remorse is now officially gone...!

5 Dealers I've contacted refused to sell me one.
the manufacturer will not return a phone call or eMail

A local shop has been trying for years so they can add PCCB support to their list of services, but have been unable to purchase the sensor from a dealer or manufacturer or even Porsche Motorsports…they went so far as to place an order with PMS, pay PMS, receive a shipping confirmation for the item, to have it stopped in shipping from Porsche Germany.

as far as I know at this time ONLY Porsche dealers can obtain the measurement device, I welcome concrete confirmation and have several people with money waiting if we can find a source for this valuable mechanic's tool.

What is the best choice for the brake pads to be used with PCCBs for track use?

I have heard that a good choice is Pagid RSC1

Any comments / advice would be much appreciated.

All that is available is stock and Pagid RSC1. I am sticking with stock for the small amount of track days I do. I'd rather wear through softer pads than the expensive PCCB rotor.

I thought of changing to NON-OEM pads only bacause I thought that RSC1 are more heat-resistand and thus will not overheat the PCCB rotors whereas OEM pads will. If this is not the case, then I am definitely sticking to OEM pads.

Any ideas as per what is causing less damage to the PCCB rotors when you track the car? Stock pads or Pagid RSC1?

The rear rotors are now made to same as stock size (380x30) for a direct swap to iron rotors w/o any modification

"Basal Skull" the 993 Turbo track driver has RB-CCB kit.

Installed - March 2016

394mm/390 CCM Brakes!

3 sets brake pad consumed so far (2 ZR1 Brembo OE, 1 RB sintered), plus a recent caliper rebuild.

RB CCM Brake Kit caliper rebuild

And Now!

Back at the track!

The CCB rotors have lasted 3 seasons w/o a sign of needing replacement. He replaced pad to sintered pad which shall last 2-3 times longer than ZR1 OE pad, and the rotors are stronger now than before and protected from oxidation.

Depending on how you track your car, the pad wear may vary and that's all you have to watch out while a rigid caliper (like RB with open top for easy pad inspection/change) can help to improve the braking efficiency and reduce the pad taper wear.
Other than the long term cost saving, the never "warp" nor "crack" CCB set up that can consistently deliver confidence inspiring performance at any braking condition is not something that an iron set up can compare.

Iron or CCB? - You decide.
