Nice report! Your experience lines up well with my own.

I have not pushed very hard on the track, and have not experienced brake fade - just some softening of the pedal that I think would be well addressed with some uprated fluid and possibly pads. I'm interested to know to what degree your comment about ticking the 'carbon ceramic' box is based on pedal effort, pedal travel, and brake fade...

Reaction to carbon ceramic brakes is very mixed and seems to vary from brand to brand. In general, the need to get them up to temperature before they offer their best tends to push me away from them for a street car. You did qualify your comment with a 'track bug' qualifier, but if the car will see street duty, I'd be careful to evaluate the impact (no pun intended) of delayed braking force during spirited driving.
